15 months

Dear Emanuel,

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!
-The biggest news this past month would be the fact that you stopped nursing. On July 24th, I nursed you one last time before putting you to bed. I'm not gonna lie; it was very emotional for me. In my eyes, it officially sealed the deal that you are growing up...but that's what we want, right? You adjusted incredibly well and have become even more independent since then.
-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.
-One of the sweetest things you love to do is blow kisses & say bye-bye! It's the cutest thing ever.

-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

Love, Mommy


  1. Sarah, He is growing up so fast. He is such a good mix of the two of you. I had no idea boys have "fits" too. Guess that is something we have to look forward to. Hope the move went smooth and the unpacking isn't too bad either. Happy organizing!

  2. He is such an adorable little boy. 15 months is a fun age!

    I wanted to stop by and invite you to check out my newly revamped blog at I hope you like it!

  3. Sweet boy! I can only imagine how hard it was to nurse him one last time :( It makes me sad just thinking about it! And picturing him throwing a fit is cracking me up! I know it's not funny, but it's hard not to laugh at all their antics sometimes!

  4. Sarah- I would love it if you could share about how you weaned. Lately I have been thinking that I'm ready for C to be done but he still nurses three times a day. Did you go cold turkey? Did you have any discomfort afterward?

  5. Hi Sarah, I'm still in the verge of weaning Baby H from nursing. It's just so hard! She turned 15months also last weekend. Can you share how did you do it? Visit my blog if you have time
    ( Same Q as above (Kelly's) did you go cold turkey, or had to use nursing pads few days after?

  6. babies blowing kisses just melt me! Isn't this such a fun age?!

  7. Awww. He is sooooo precious! Happy 15 Months!
