You are 15 months old! You seemed to have grown up so much this last month, and are turning into a little toddler right before my eyes. Your personality is showing up in full force, and I absolutely love watching you grow and learn. So what's new this month?
-You had your 15 month check-up August 23. You weigh 24 pounds, which is the 44th percentile, and are 31 inches long, which is the 45th percentile. Your head measures 18.5 inches, which is 43rd percentile, so I guess you're pretty proportionate!
-Your daddy taught you to growl, and now you growl all the time! It's so cute, but you do sound a little scary.
-You LOVE to put things over your head. It started with playing peek-a-boo, but then it turned into you just wanting to leave something on your head. You like to get the dish towel from the kitchen and walk around with it on your head. You can't see where you're going, so occasionally will run into something and fall down, at which point you laugh hysterically. It's a fun little game you love to play.
-You have become a big copycat, and mimick everything we do. If I'm brushing my hair, you like to do the same. If we're eating something and dipping it in sauce, you also want to dip your food.
-You have started having a strong preference of what you want. And when you want something, sometimes you'll come and get my hand and take me to show what you want.
-You have turned into quite the little pack rat! You like to throw stuff in the hamper, bathtub, my laptop case, and I even found our home phone in the refrigerator drawer one day!
-The fits are out in full force. They involve a lot of rolling back and forth on the floor, and recently you have started walking backwards fast when you're mad, then will drop to the floor and break into your fit. It's definitely a sight to see!
I have seen your independent side come out more than ever this month. It makes me sad but also proud to see you learn and grow each month. This next month will be a big one as you start Mother's Day Out. I have a feeling that will show me a whole new side of your independence! Don't grow up too fast Bubbers. I love you baby boy! XOXO
