15 months: welcome to toddler-dom

It has been brought to my attention that my baby is appearing more every day to be a toddler.

And. I have to reluctantly agree.

6 months ago:


She was just learning to stand on her own two feet.  Just learning to pick up food to eat it. Refused to touch her bottle or sippy or otherwise provide liquid to herself.  I was so excited that I could put a little clip in her hair.

She RUNS everywhere.  She asks for "wa wa peeez” complete with signs.  She ask for her “shhhs”(shoes) and wants to put them on herself.  She helps brush her hair, put on lotion and pick out what accessories to wear.  She knows what her “wubey”(lovie) is, when she wants it, and will get it when she is tired.  Same for her binky.

She talks non-stop adding words to her vocabulary every hour- she has so many words that i can’t keep track of them all.  My favorite is the ever-popular “ma-meeee”.  She definitely knows the word “no” and likes to mock us with it.  She has entered the stage where she will test our boundaries but so far she has been redirect-able.  I don’t know how much longer that will last.  She is constantly on the go. Dancing. Running. Spinning in circles. Showing off her lack of coordination (with bruises, scrapes and “boo boo’s” to prove it).  Animal sounds she knows: duck, puppy, lion, sheep – and she does them all in the same gravely voice!  Also? She is incredibly dramatic. About everything. It’s hilarious.

Some of her favorite things are her baby, “melmo”, books, her bobby pillow, shoes, “talking on the phone”, her “wubey”, swimming.

This 15 month old has it ALL figured out. Or at least she has US figured out.  One look from that pigtailed girl and we all jump. Or laugh. And we definitely all smile, because how can you not?

I can’t believe how much she has changed in just  6 months.  I also can’t believe how much FUN she is.  This girl lights up my world.Every.Single.Day.

They are so cute at that age, and it sounds like you are having a blast, that's wonderful. I also enjoy your pictures on twitter!

She is quite the little cutie pie, I must say (and soooo smart). It's crazy how fast they grow isn't it? Seems like just yesterday we were both pregnant and pretty soon they'll be off to school.
