15 Months

Ales had his 15 month check-up and all is well. His growth is back on the chart, so that is excelent news. He is 30 inches long and weighs 23 lbs. His fine motor skills are above average! Short and sweet appointment :)

Zoo, Gymboree, and a Parade

My folks were here a few days and I finally got Mom to Gymboree. She was sore afterwards :)

We followed that with a trip to the Zoo. This was Alex's first Zoo trip and my Dad will tell you it is his first, although it is really his third time.

After they went home, Alex and I went there for a mini Kraus/Millberg Reunion in Springfield, and the Old Settlers Parade in Hillsboro. I did end up with a free t-shirt at the parade :) Alex also had two first concerts...American English, the Beatles tribute band, and the German band. Two alternating tastes :)

We went to Eckert's Farm in Grafton, IL on Saturday to do a pick of blackberry picking. They are Eric's favorite :) We ended up with 10 pounds, yes pounds, of blackberries.
