Blakely's 15 Month Update

Height: 30 3/4 inches - 58%
Weight: 22 lb 13 oz - 72%
Head Circumference: 18 3/4 in - 91%
Movement: God Bless America, you are a full-time walker! Literally as soon as I did your 14 month post, you decided you were over the crawling and started walking everywhere. Your walking gets better each day and you are pretty good now. We still squat down and climb in out of steps feet first, but I am ok with that...better safe than sorry. You love crawling up stairs, but we haven't worked much on getting down the stairs. We are practicing that at My gym.
Eating Habits/New Foods: Well it's a sad day for you B! Dr. Mary told me its time for the bottle to go bye bye. I tried today to give you milk in a sippy cup and you weren't having it. I'm going to wait till after our trip to Cashiers before I take it away. You are very fickle with your food these days, one day you will eat 30 blueberries and the next day you spit them out and try to throw them on the floor. Things you are currently liking are pretzels, snack mix (Really just the m&m's), graham crackers, salami, pirates booty, pineapple, watermelon, yogurt. cucumbers, corn.
Sleeping Patterns: You are sleeping through the night with an occasional wake for tylenol and some milk since these top teeth are still pushing through. We've been switching between 1 and 2 naps, but on days when you have 2 naps you are up till 9 pm. I think it's time to go just to 1 and have an early bed time.
Sounds/Words: You can do the help sign now as well as the airplane, frog & fish sign. Your new favorite sign which we see often is treat. Gram spoils you with chocolate and you know how to rope her in with your signing ;). You sure talk a lot, the problem is we can't understand 95% of it. It literally sounds like you are giving a lecture in gibberish haha. New words are baby, night night, ouch, pa pa, moo, neigh, meow, ribbit, and lots of other noises that you repeat after me.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You got your top two side teeth are coming through
-You are a talking maniac. See above for all the words or my instagram for a video.
-You can walk and climb anywhere. When I chase you, you try to run, but it is just the same speed walk with a hurried facial expression. LOL
-You are LOUD! You yell, scream, talk loud, laugh loud. You are just a loud lady. I wonder where that came from. haha
-You are a great traveler in the car. You sleep, watch movies with your sis, and just lay back in relax majority of the time!
-You went tubing for the first time and loved it!
-You have the meanest scowl on the planet when you don't like something. It's hilarious!
Places you went/Adventures: Your big adventure this month was going to Lake Oconee for a week with the entire family. We swam, boated, went to the Georgia Aquarium, visited Athens, and explored the town of Oconee. Then the twins came home and lived with us for another week which was an adventure in itself. 4 kids under 4 is a treat! You also took a overnight trip to West Palm beach with D and Mom. There have been lots of days spent swimming i Gram's pool. We also celebrated retirement with a surprise party. Life is nice, now that you are walking everywhere!
Clothes: You are in 18-24 mont clothes for the most part. PJ's are either 18-24 or 2T (which are big but  at least you have room to grow. You are still in a size 5 diaper. Size 4 shoe
Sister updates: You and sis have been great together. Maybe because things have been so busy and crazy lately there hasn't been time to fight, but I love seeing you all together. Nothing made me smile more than to be on a girls road trip and look back at my two favorite girls laughing and giggling together at a movie while Delainey is handing you her pretzels one at a time! So sweet! I know it will not be like this forever so I am cherishing it while I can! :)
