As much fun as I do have decorating our house for Christmas I also realize that decorating is not what it is all about. As much fun as it is we all must still remember the real meaning of Christmas and I hope that in the years to come Josh and I are able to instill in Charlie that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus and not just about gifts and decorations.

Last Friday we took Charlie to see Dr. Joe for his 18 month checkup. Our little guy did so great and Dr. Joe could hardly believe how much he has grown in the last 6 months. The only issue we came across was that the tube in his right ear is looking as though it is coming out. Both Josh and I are hoping that when it does fall out we will not have to have it replaced. At his check up he had to get two shots, we decided to postpone his 2 vaccines and get the seasonal flu and he h1n1 shots instead. Dr Joe decided that was the best thing to do and that we would just wait a month and he would come in and get the 2 vaccines he missed. No real biggie it just means that Charlie will have to get shots again in just a few weeks. Below are Charlie's stats from his 18 month check up.

The finished product is below and I think they turned out pretty good, I still need to get a little bit better at the hem but I think that will come with practice. I am hoping to but my new skill to use and make Charlie several pants that will go with all the super cute shirts that his Aunt Molly has made him.
To close out the night before Charlie went to bed we had to have a little drama. Our poor little guy got his fingers smashed in the door, I really thought he might have broken one of his little fingers. I have never heard him scream and cry so hard, after about 5 minutes of crying and finding a paci for him he was okay but wanted to stay close to mommy. After his little accident we decided that it was bed time. Aside from the accident I know Charlie has so much fun on Halloween and I really can't wait until next year!
