Galveston oh Galveston

Mom, Leah, Chase, and I all spent a fun few days in Galveston this last week. We spent time at the beach (notice the beautiful dark mud....I mean sand :), in the swimming pool, at a place called Palm Beach, eating, etc. Chase loved the beach so much more than I thought he would. I thought he would at least be timid at first but no way! He was all about it!

This is how we got Chase to go to sleep each night in our hotel room. Having 4 other people in the room was a little distracting to him and he stayed up late each night....that's right, there's a DVD player right in bed with him!

After our time in Galveston we went to Mimi and Papa's house for a couple of nights. Here are some fun pictures of Preston, Chase and Mimi in their pool. Chase LOVED having his daddy hold him while he jumped in the deep end. They, of course, went under the water every time but as soon as they came up Chase said "more, more..." He's fearless. And I don't understand how he never gets water up his nose!

Waiting for mom and dad!

(This post is a little late...but oh well...)
Mimi and Papa took a few pictures of Chase as they were waiting for Preston and I to get off the air plane getting back from our trip to Canada. The top on is Chase waiting and watching for us to come into view. The middle is right after he ran to us for a hug (made my whole day!). The bottom pic is of one of Chase's fun activities in's a playground called "Sugar Land".

Oh and by the way I forgot to post Chase's 2-year stats. Here they are:

Weight = 25.8 lb (25%)

Height = 34" (35%)

Predict Your Child's Height:

If any of you are interested in finding out how tall your kids are going to be here is the formula that Chase's doctor gave me. He said it was more accurate that just doubling the height when they are 2 years old.

(Moms height + Dad's Height + 5)/2 = Boy's predicted height
(Moms height + Dad's Height - 5)/2 = Girl's predicted height

Oh and I should add that he said give or take 2 that's a 5 inch range...doesn't sound all that accurate to me....but it gives you an idea I guess. haha.

Chase should be 71 1/2 inches (give or take 2 inches)

That's right between 5' 11'' and 6'.
