Notes from the crib: 15 months

Hi!  It's me, Maya!  Long time no talk to!  We are actually almost 16 months, but Mom wanted to wait until she had our official stats from the Dr., and she needed a free minute to sit down and actually give you the update.  I mean, I needed to find time to write this blog post. :)  At 15 1/2 months old, I weigh 20 lb 8 ounces, I'm 30.75" tall, which puts me in an average of about the 40% percentile.  I'm still pretty tiny, and wear 12-18 month clothes.  I am the loud one.  You can't miss hearing me, and everything I say sends a shrill to the ear.  My laugh, my cry, my yelling, talking.... everything is LOUD!  I love to have fun.  I'm a quick little girl and run all over the house.  I don't miss a beat and love to play and be tickled.  My laugh is contagious!  I don't like to drink milk, and food isn't really my favorite thing either.  I eat pretty well, but when I'm done, I'm done.  I can say a few words- Mama, Dada, cracker, all done, Nana, Kaden, Thank you.... some of them are a stretch, but Mom says she knows what I'm saying :)  I've turned into somewhat of a Daddy's girl, and love to cuddle and spend time with my Daddy.  If an adult is sitting on the floor, I like to back myself right into them and plop on their lap to just relax or have a story read to me.  I also love to throw things and play catch with my brother.  I sleep well at night, which Mom and Dad are thankful for.  I like to make what Mom and Dad call "my duck face."  Mom is working on getting a good picture of it to put on the blog.  I scrunch up my face when I do it, and it's just the most adorable thing ever.  Anyone who sees me do it just cracks right up!

It's me, Makenna!  At 15 1/2 months, I weigh 22 lb, and I'm 31.75" tall.  This puts my height in the 80th percentile and my weight in the 56th percentile.  I'm still 2lb bigger than my sister, which I've pretty much been all along.  I still fit into 12-18 month clothes, too, but 18 month fits me a little better.  So far Mom has lucked out and been able to put us in the same size clothes.  When I grow out of something, Mom just retires the outfit for both of us :)  I am a very happy girl, but boy, I can be mean to my sister.  Sometimes I'll walk up to my sister and hit her on the face for no reason.  I'm stubborn and I like things my way, and if I want something, I want it NOW!  I'm much more laid back than my sister is, though, and not quite as loud in volume as her either.  I say more words than my sister does at this point.  I like to say, "hot, mama, Kaden, thank you, pretty, Dada, uh-oh, Nana."  I'm pretty content walking around and playing with my toys, but boy... I love to get into everything.  I like to climb on chairs and I'm very curious about everything around me.  I'm different from my sister in this way.  She doesn't try to climb on things or get into things she's not supposed to.  Not me, however.  I try to get into everything, and I try REALLY hard to get into things I'm not supposed to play with.  What can I say, I'm a stinker :)  I still have cute chubby cheeks and a gentle soul.  I really love to eat, but I'm a pokey eater.  I'll pick at my food the whole time I'm in my high chair and will just keep eating anything that is given to me- except milk of course.  I take good naps and sleep well at night.  My sister and I are down to 1 nap a day and she usually sleeps for 1-1.5 hours, and I usually sleep from 1.5-2hrs.  We are still wearing size 3 diapers but we'll be switching soon, Mom says.

Mom says she loves us at this age.  We are so much fun to play with, and even though we keep Mom VERY busy, we add so much joy to our family.  Our personalities are really starting to shine, and we're growing into 2 fun toddlers.  Every day Mom says that we're acting more like toddlers and less like babies.  Sometimes that makes Mom sad, but she also loves being able to interact with us so much.  We'll talk to you again soon with our 18 month update!
