Now that everyone has received their Pontus Family Christmas Card, we can show off other adorable pics that did NOT make the cut.
Not sure about the lollipop
Okay, this WAS on our card...it was just too darn cute to NOT include here. :)
Sticky cute mess

Amelia had her 15 month appointment at the pediatrician today. This was a rough visit. I'm pretty sure she recognizes the office as a place where she gets poked, prodded, and shots. Today she got more vaccinations...MMR and chickenpox. Those are live viruses, so we're on fever-watch. :( She also got the 1st dose of the flu shot (not H1N1, just the regular flu shot).
She did NOT like the shots! It's so hard to have to hold down her arms and watch as she screams the silent scream until she explodes into uncontrollable sobs. Amelia is a trooper though. She had pretty much stopped crying by the time we put her clothes back on. She got a safety sucker, and enjoyed taking a few licks off that. Overall, she seems to be doing ok. We're giving her extra cuddles.
On to the fun stuff...her stats! Amelia weighs 24 pounds (although she peed right after being weighed, so maybe a few ounces less) and is 32 1/4 inches tall!!! She weighs as much as an 18 month old, and is as tall as a 20 month old. Dr. S. is extremely pleased with her growth and said she was "charming". :) He was also amazed that she knows more than 20 words and a few sentences.
I know that I am behind with posting, I apologize. I have been working a ton, and don't have a lot of free time with holiday preparations. I'll have a picture post up soon, maybe this weekend!
