Drew's 15 Month Update!

It is really hard for me to believe that my lil one is 15 months old. I actually caught myself saying 14 months...then my Husband kindly corrected me... I said.."really?"  

So, here we go month 15!


*Size 4 diapers! Using Honest and Luvs (for nighttime)
*Eating everything except raw fruit.. I've tried blueberries, peaches, grapes, melon...geesh.. If its pureed you will eat it. I occasionally mix it in yogurt and oatmeal too but way!

*We had our very first airplane ride and you did so very good!!! Slept both ways...I was stumped ;)

*You took your first couple of steps in June.  (14months) Then from there..each day you added another step and grew more confidence. Today, you walk everywhere! I thank you for taking your time with walking. I was able to keep you a lil baby a bit longer than normal.

*You amaze me every day! Your brain is absorbing so much lately. Sign language is going pretty good. Some of our daily signs would be Milk, Poo Poo, More, Food and all done. 

*Still going on the potty. But-I'd like you to start telling me you have to go. We are working on it. 

*First time on the beach! It was so exciting watching you explore! Touching the sand...water...

*First time camping with Gigi and Popi. It didn't go as well as I had hoped. Day time was a blast. Dinner went good too.. but sleeping is another story. You really need your own bed. That's the bottom line. So around midnight I threw you in the car and drove an hour home.. Oh well! We had so much fun though!

I found a shirt at said "Daddy's Little Camper." Also, snatched up some army shorts! We had a blast driving around in the golf cart too!

 *You have mastered standing and holding objects like drinking out of a cup. Also, bending down and picking up toys.

*Just the other day, you opened the back door at Gigi's house. I heard a someone was coming into the house..I was all startled. Then, I see it was you!  Oh my...

*Finally after months and months of practice.. you go through the doggie door. So now it is difficult to keep you from leaving the house :)

*We go next week for your pediatrician visit. Excited to see how much you have grown! 

*Drinking a little bit of cows milk , tons of almond milk and water every day. Bottles were put away back around month 12! That was a little sad...but it feels good 

*Sleeping pretty good. Typically we don't hear from you till morning. Every now and then you wake up..and just need a little help to get back to dreamland. 

*Naps...oh no..I'm thinking you are starting to resort to 1 nap per day. So not ready for this! Depending on our day...Your nap will actually go over the lunch hour.. and it will be for a long 3 hours. Then thats it till bed time. Then other days we do two. So, the transitioning is happening!


*We go for daily walks and you appear to really enjoy them..but if we go shopping you would prefer if I never stop moving! Or you would rather get out and walk around. So, shopping has been limited. It isn't as fun as it once was. 

*Growth spurt wow! One day your shoes fit..the next not so much. So we bought like 4 pairs of shoes... hoping something works! Size 4

*No words yet, but a ton of babble. a TON! I'm just waiting to hear you say that magical word (mama). 

*You have completed swimming lessons! We even had to be bumped up to the next age group and it turned out to be great. It was a 2 week session. Everyday... and by the end you were comfortable floating on your back. I'm hoping to sign you up again around fall time.
*Had your first piece of pizza...yes it took this long! Since I can't eat anything with do you..  So when we do go out to eat I order you something different!

  1. The potty thing still gets me-- so amazing he can do that so young! Also how fun he is using so much sign language. I plan to teach Ava some signs, too!
