Riley's 15 Months and Connor's Over Half-Way "Done"!

Mommy's a little delayed in getting this posted, but on Feb. 16 I was officially 15 months! I went to the doctor that day and got some new shots I had received before and of course got weighed and measured. I was 22 lbs. 4 oz and about 30 inches long-just slightly below "average" in both areas. I am doing well otherwise, expect was diagnosed with another ear infection.

At 15 months I am movin' and groovin'! I am getting very fast and getting around and often disappear when mommy or daddy turn their back for just a second. I am also LOVING stairs-going both up and down by myself. I will also hold mommy or daddy's hand and walk down the stairs. In terms of my cognitive development things are going well. I am able to understand most of what mommy and daddy tell me and usually follow the directions. Mommy can tell me to go get my babies, put something away, sit down, etc. and I will follow....well unless I'm feeling stubborn and just don't want to sit down. Verbally I can say "mama", "dada", "dog", "all done", "uhoh", "milk", "eat" (sounds the same as milk), "up", "no", and "byebye". I might be saying "thank you" too, but it's hard for mommy to tell. I can also use sign language to say "milk", "eat", and "all done". I can wave byebye, idetify my tum-tum and my head, and I am just starting to learn to blow kisses (but I love giving open-mouthed ones). I eat basically everything that mommy and daddy eat and insist on always feeding myself.

Mommy's also had a doctor appointment yesterday to check on Connor's development. She had another ultrasound and everything looks perfect. Everything is the way it is supposed to be with the heart and I am still getting a little brother. Mommy is tracking exactly how she should with the pregnancy. Her next visit is in 4 weeks and they will do the routine gestational diabetes test.
