15 months

I cant believe my baby is 15 months old. Where has the time gone? People keep telling me how time flies now that I have a little one and I am trying to hang on but this is going WAY to fast. I now have a toddler. Not a baby although he will always be my baby! He doesnt really walk anywhere, he runs!! My child never sits therefore I am always on the go. I am 15 weeks pregnant and I have gained 1 pound. That is crazy considering I have been eating everything and not much that is good for me, ha! I guess that is because I am running around all day. Lets see...Cade weighs 26.5 pounds, is 33 inches tall and is in the 90th percentile for height and 75th for weight. I have a big boy on my hands so I am grateful he is walking. We have had a fun summer so far. Cade enjoys being outside period! Therefore, I sit outside and just get hot. Its worth it though because pretty soon it wont be just Cade and I playing outside.
We go to the beach, which he LOVES because he can just run all over the beach. We go to the right, then the left, then the water then back to the sand and repeat. I dont even bring a chair with me because sitting is something we never do. We have a pool in the complex where we live so we go there a few times a week. Cade has no fear of the water. He walks right off the edge and just laughs and splashes. And he does it over and over! He lasts about 30 minutes and he is ready to go. Why so soon?? The reason being that I wont chase him around the pool. We are there to swim not chase birds and try to escape through the gate.
We try and go to my moms house once a week because she helps me with Cade and loves to play in her yard. Turn the hose on, fill a bucket of water and he has a ball. Plus she saves bread to feed the birds and he loves that. To bad they barely come near it when he is out there. And we go for bike rides as well. She seems to always have more fruit and better snacks than me and he just loves to be with Sweetie and PaPa.
I am trying to take pictures to keep my memories but I have been slack. I have been taking videos so that is good. Did I mention that Cade can dribble the basketball. Yes, he gets 2 dribbles before the ball escapes him but that is pretty good for a 15 month old?! We also found out that Cade is allergic to eggs. After 3 outbreaks of hives, our doc said we needed to get him tested. So no eggs but he should grow out of it by age 3 so we will be careful until then. After reading labels in the store I have realized I dont recognize a lot of those words.
I am sure this is a lot of reading and not fun without pictures but I will post some soon. Just havent updated in so long!
