- You dont really walk anymore, you run. With your head down and arms flaling. Which means alot of bruises and falling down.
- You have some thick thick hair, like mommy, and you are really tall so people think you are 2. But your not. You are a week away from being 15 months.
- Your vocabulary expands all the time. Right now you can say: mama, dada, bye-bye, ball, dog, duck, ruff-ruff, night-night, diaper, poo-poo, nose, cat, duck, hot-hot, cold, book, no, juice, toes, uh-oh, hello (only when pretending to talk on the phone), papa, papaw, naenae, nana (even though there is no grandparent named nana)
- You can identify these parts of your body: nose, hair, belly, toes, foot, teeth and when we ask you if you poo-pooed, you point to your diaper.
- You can follow some commands. If we ask you to pick something up and bring it to one of us, you usually do. You can go find your milk, baby, ball, etc... You have learned to throw appropriate things away in the trash can.
- You still havent learned to sign "thank you" but you can sign "please" and "more".
- You love to wave hi and bye, although you wont say hi. You wave now even when you are not prompted to.
- You are learning to throw things, like the dog toys, and a ball, even though it doesnt go very far.
- You also just learned how to kick a ball and you think it is really funny thing to do.
- You can eat with a fork when mommy helps you and you really like it.
- You love to buckle the top of your carseat with mommys help, you get really excited and clap.
- You STILL love Baby Einstein's Babys First Sounds
Thats really all I can think of at the moment. I have got to get better at doing this monthly. I know I am going to regret not doing it when this new baby is born and I am wondering what Audrie was like at that age.
This age, to me, is one of the hardest. Audrie is IN TO EVERYTHING...and does not listen to me very well. She listens to her sitter and other people, which I am grateful for, but I wish she would listen to me! I think it is most challenging because she cant communicate as much as I wish she could, so she just whines. and whines. and whines. I know each age comes with their own challenges and I also know one day, I am going to wish she couldnt talk!
