So, Chloe is definitely a third child. It took me a month after her 2nd birthday to realize that we never took her in for her 2 year check-up with the pediatrician. Then when I get there today, Dr. Yim tells me I forgot to bring her back after her 18-month appt to get her shots (since she was sick at that appt). Oops. Bad mommy.
Chloe did super well. No crying at all with her vaccinations.
Chloeâ€™s â€œ25-monthâ€ statsâ€¦.
Weight = 28.5 pounds
Height = 34.5 inches
Hereâ€™s a picture of our Chloe â€“ a total spitfire who can furrow her brow all morning long just for not getting the purple plate she wanted at breakfast. Caleb and Caris, donâ€™t even think about taking a toy from her lest you feel her wrath. Chloe is a cutie, though. Good thing for her!
Caleb, Caris, and Chloe have all been into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD we have in the car. Every time we get in the car, Chloe says, "vevo… Mouse." In non-toddler speak, that’s â€œvideo… Mickey Mouse.â€ But since they only watch it in the car, I’ve never actually seen it, but I do hear it. There’s this one part where Mickey says something, and Caleb & Caris will say it loudly and in unison. "Oh Toodles!!!"
Now, I don’t know who or what Toodles is. Caleb & Caris will pretend play and carry this small purple mirror around, and call it â€œToodles.â€ I saw Caris this morning pretend washing "Toodles" with a sponge. I always pictured Toodles to be some type of animal like a dog or something, but after watching them play, I wondered what it actually is. I asked Caris what is Toodles.
Caris: It has 2 circles and another circle.
Me: Oh, so it’s like Mickey Mouse ears.
Caleb & Caris: Yeah.
Iâ€™ll just Google it to see what it really looks like. Is that what the Mickey Mouse ears are called?
No! It’s not just Mickey Mouse ears. It’s Mickey Mouse ears on LSD!
Little Chloe got out of getting shots today. Since sheâ€™s been exposed to chickenpox, we decided it was better to wait out the incubation period before hitting her immune system with the MMR or giving her the varicella/chickenpox vaccine.
Length: 32.25 inches (90%)

Iâ€™m little behind posting updates. Maybe if the wireless didnâ€™t suck so much here, there would be more updates. Or maybe not.
Boat ride to San Pedro
Blue Water Grill. Yvonne and I had our 1 year anniversary dinner here when we first came to Belize.
Going back home
It rained a little bit today. First rains of our vacation.
Po-po and Caris dancing at the Belizian Dinner night.
The bugs are killing me. Iâ€™m tasty.
Yvonne: How come Caleb doesnâ€™t have any?
Caleb: Iâ€™m not tasty.
And the bug bites are only going to get worse.
Our sleeping arrangements arenâ€™t ideal, at least not for me and Yvonne. We only have a 1 bedroom. So of course the kids get the bedroom with the air conditioning. And weâ€™re on the couch. At least the kids get a comfy bed. We should go sleep outside.

Caleb, Caris and I went swimming in the new pool today. It was about 80 degrees outside the pool. The water inside was probably about 60 degrees. Just a little cold.
The kids just love hanging out in the balcony.
Heading out to San Pedro (the main town)
Waiting for dinner.
After a long day of travel, we are in Belize now. We flew out of Ontario at 6am. I got about an hour of sleep. Yvonne, not wanting to bring a bunch of school books here, stayed up all night to read and take notes on them. The kids got woken up dark and early at 3:45. And of course they decided not to go back to sleep. Gonna be a long day of traveling.
We have a 2 and a half hour layover in Dallas. Thereâ€™s a kids playground there to waste time at.
One two and a half hour flight down. One 2 and a half hour flight to go.
We were lucky enough to get a whole row to ourselves on both flights. Chloe even got her own seat.
Caleb & Caris 2nd short nap of the day.
The tired little bunch even slept through the landing.
From Belize City to Ambergris Caye
It was a little cloudy, a little rainy, and very humid. 5pm and weâ€™re not even at the resort yet.
