Erin's 15 Month Well Baby Visit

Erin had her 15 Month Well Baby visit with Dr. Boyce in December and unfortunately I was home with the stomach flu (YUCK!), so Pat took her.
Dr. Boyce said everything looked good and even though she only has two words right now (ball and Mama) he was not concerned and said we could talk about it again at her 18 month appointment.
She weighed in at 23 pounds, 12 ounces and was 32.5 inches long. Still a long baby!

Enjoy the picture below of Erin very much enjoying her ball pit on Christmas morning!


We had our first snow of the season at the end of last week/beginning of the weekend and the kids got out to play in it for a little bit with Pat on Saturday AM. It was snowy and COLD, so they were not out for long. We weren't going to send Erin out, but when she saw Connor going out, she did not want to be left out.

I tried to get a picture of all three out in the cold, but Connor was not in a cooperating mood, so here is Erin and her Daddy...her favorite! :)

Cancun, Mexico

Pat and I were VERY lucky and got to get a way for a few days at the beginning of the month. Meme and Pops watched the kids while we took a long weekend trip to Cancun, Mexico (THANK YOU MEME AND POPS!). We stayed at The Royal in Cancun and it was WONDERFUL! Our good friend and travel agent, Kate McGowan, hooked us up and it was wonderful (if anyone needs help planning a trip, Kate is GREAT and I can get you in touch with her...just let me know!). Here are some pictures from our few days in paradise.
It was tough to leave, but we were also happy to get home to see our kiddos whom we missed terribly!

Christmas 2012

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! We spent Christmas Eve with Meme and Pops and then the entire Murphy clan was together for Christmas Day at Meme and Pops. It was wonderful to spend time with Ryan, Jeni, Cole, Mae, Maryjane, Jon, Leah, Meme and Pops! The kids had a blast and it is so much fun to see Connor really understand Christmas, Santa, Jesus' Birthday...the whole shebang! :)
Christmas Eve Pictures

I had to get this on camera as Connor ALWAYS does this to Erin when we are trying to get a picture of the two of them. He thinks he is getting close with her and helping, but he is not and she HATES it! Just funny to capture!
In their new Christmas jammies...we all get to open a new pair of jammies on Christmas Eve and Connor could not WAIT to put his on!
Cookie, milk and carrots!
