*You weigh 22.8 pounds and are a little over 28.5 inches tall.
*You are getting so fast with your walking. It makes it very hard for me to keep up with you in public. You love to walk circles around the house, usually while making a lot of noise! In the airport this past week I let you walk all over the place while I followed you with the stroller.
*Because you love to be so mobile now, you are becoming very hard to take out to meals. You don't love to sit still in your high chair for very long at all. We've been eating in so much more because of that!
* You are getting quite good at pitching fits. Any little thing can set you off. You bow your back and then flop face forward on the floor. It's really funny to watch, but we just have to try and ignore you when you act out.
*You still drink four huge cups of whole milk a day in your sippy cups, and we go through a half a gallon in between 2-5 days! You are starting to like apple juice more and you'll drink a little water here and there also.
*You still love blueberries and strawberries, bananas, anything sweet, waffles, bagels, oatmeal (can you tell that breakfast is your favorite meal?), turkey and cheese sandwiches, pb and js, mac and cheese, peas and carrots, ravioli, spaghetti.
*You are very interesting with your eating habits, as most toddlers are. You love to eat a big breakfast, but sometimes you don't care to eat much of anything for lunch or dinner. You love to snack and eat little meals throughout the day.
*However, you aren't a huge fan of meat, and we're trying to work to get you to eat more protein. You do love the Gerber meat sticks though (yuck!). You also love Perdue chicken nuggets (the only chicken nuggets that you will eat!).
*You are still sleeping 12 hours a night, and we pushed your bedtime back until 8pm so that you sleep a little later in the morning! At your Grammy's house this past weekend, you slept until 10 am each morning. I wish you would do that at your own house!
*You rarely take 2 naps a day now since we are hardly ever home in the morning. Most days you only get one long nap in at around 1:30-2:30 and sleep until between 3-5 depending on how tired you are and when you started your nap
*You LOVE to swim. You love to jump off the side of the pool and dunk your whole face underwater. We just got a baby pool for you to use at our house and you have already discovered how to climb in and out all by yourself. Our pool in the neighborhood is now open on the weekends, and we will be spending a lot of time there since it's so hot here!
*You love to ride trains, and this month you got to ride the train at the Kemah Boardwalk as well as the train down by the Houston Zoo with some friends. You also have a great time swinging and laugh hysterically while you do it.
*You still have 6 teeth, and you have two more working their way through on the top. I can see two little white caps on either side, but they are taking forever to work their way through. They don't seem to be bothering you much, which is good.
*You are saying a lot these days, but most of it is jibberish (I SO wish that I knew what you were trying to say!!!). You can say "doggy", "night-night", "bye-bye", "hi", "mama", "dada"-still your favorite, "uh-oh", "good morning"-although it mainly sounds like "goo goo goo" right now :)
*You love to read, sing, and dance. You dance to any kind of music, but you especially love your Barney and Sesame Street songs (yes your Sesame Street DVD is by far still your favorite, although Barney is coming in a close second).
*You are slowly learning the hand motions to "itsy-bitsy spider," "the hokey pokey," and "mr. sun," but you still love "if you're happy and you know it." You sing along to the songs on your Barney dvd now, and it sounds so precious!
*We moved you to your big girl car seat this past month. You were about to exceed the weight limit (22 pounds). You don't seem to mind or notice the difference. We brought home your Grammy's infant seat (that goes up to 30 pounds) to keep in daddy's car.
*This past month you celebrated your second Easter. You participated in your first Easter egg hunt on April 23 and had a great time! Next year, you will need to show your sister how to do it. Grammy, Granddaddy, and Uncle Phillip came in town to celebrate Easter with you also.
I say this every month, but I really can't believe that you are already 15 months old (three-quarters of a year away from your second birthday!!). You are becoming more and more of a big kid everyday. You have a smile that can light up a room and a laugh that is contagious. We love watching you grow and learn!
