Eeyore's Birthday Party

For years, Larry and I kept saying - we should go to Eeyore's Birthday Party, but every year - we would always miss it. Never knowing exactly when it happened, and never hearing about when it was. This year, we finally made it out!
For those of you who don't know what Eeyore's Birthday Party is (follow the link). And for those who watch South Park - we saw a real live Hippy Drum Circle. (see below)
Alice had a good time watching the interesting people, costumes and many, many DOGGIES. We saw a childrens costume contest, a walking twinkie and lots of fairys (real and imaginary...haha)
To help Alice blend in, we got her ponytail painted red. The red was cute and went with her outfit, but I think next time we will go with a pink ponytail - or maybe blue.

After a few hours of walking around, we finally headed back to the car. We had parked downtown and taken a shuttle to the event. The Shuttles were real live school buses - so Alice got her first ride on a school bus.

A whole afternoon of firsts' and fun.

Alice had her 15 month well check last week. Her ears have finally cleared up, but she did develop pink eye (again).

The doctor looked at her teeth and said we should start weening her from the paci because it is pushing her teeth forward. We've decided to try and only give her the paci at night, and on long trips.
Alice can say lots more words now. I really don't know if she knows the meaning to most of them but some of her favorite new words are: doggie, more, go, baby, E-I-E-I-O which she sings with the song "Old McDonald", and at other random times.

Her stats for 15 months are right on target for her growth chart. She is still 80th percentile for height, 15th percentile for weight, and a whopping 95% for her head. She is 3x's her birth weight and 1/3 longer. (21.5lbs / 31" long)

Easter Sunday

Gammy sent Alice an outfit for Easter, along with a book and some paci clips.

It was a nice day spent with the family.
