Avery's 15th Month

 This is such a late post. By now, she is actually 16 months old. Ugh. However, I did take these pictures during her 15th month and wrote this post at that time too but kept telling myself I'd re-try to take her 15 month picture because I was unhappy with how it turned out. She did NOT want to sit still this night and I thought maybe I'd try again to get a better picture. That never happened so I thought I'd better just get it posted and just deal with the picture I got, so here it is, a month late. ;-)


On July 28th you turned 15 months old! 

At your 15 month check-up at the doctor, you weighed 23.6 lbs (74%) and you were 31 1/2 inches tall (71%). Such a big girl. :-) At this appointment you had to get 3 shots and you handled it like a champ. You didn't even cry during the first one but cried a little during the second and third shots. However as soon as the nurse said, "do you want a cookie?" you immediately stopped crying. ;-)

You are still wearing 18 and 24 month clothes.

Shoe Size:
Size 5

Size 4

You have your 8 front teeth (4 on the bottom and 4 on the top) and you've gotten all 4 of your 1st year molars.You are currently working on getting your incisors.

Your hair keeps getting lighter and lighter so I would say it's a very light brown and your eyes are a brown.

You usually go to sleep between 8 and 9 and you generally sleep until 7ish the next morning! You are such a great sleeper and Mommy and Daddy appreciate that. You usually take 2 naps a day that are usually around 1-2 hours long.

You love pancakes, toaster sticks, peanut butter sandwiches, pizza, carrots, macaroni, yogurt, apples, grilled cheese and you love fries and chips. You've got feeding yourself down now and won't even think about eating off of a spoon/fork from us. You have to do it yourself (oh joy!). We stopped giving you that last bottle before bed time this month and you never missed it or complained about not having it!! You still get milk in your sippy cup or water throughout the day and you do great with that. You got to have your first popsicle from the ice-cream man all to yourself this month and enjoyed that very much! :-)

Favorite Toys:
Any toy your brother has. Ugh... and so the sibling rivalry begins.

You love to sing and dance and have been learning the movements to "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed". It is just too cute to watch you do the movements. You love the opening theme song to The Office and you can be in the back room and hear it come on and you come running out to the living room to dance. SO CUTE!! You also started "singing". It is the cutest thing ever. You blow kisses and love to climb. You can get on and off the couch all by yourself now and you can climb up on things we'd rather you not! ;-)

You say a lot of words once, and then you often won't say them again. You've said "juice" when you wanted your cup and you said "duck" when we were at the park and saw ducks. You also said "hi dada" when you and your brother were out on the patio and Daddy was taking the trash out. Jackson said "hi daddy" and you repeated what he was saying. You've been able to say "dada" for a long time, but you put hi and dada together for the first time and it was really cute. You said bubble the other day when brother was blowing bubbles outside for you and you said "up/down" but won't say it again.

You have quite the personality these days. You are strong willed, very independent and pretty demanding, but you can be sweet at sugar too. You are very much a girly girl and love shoes, purses, chap-stick, baby dolls and brushing your hair. You love water... bath time and swimming in the pool are a lot of fun for you. You have quite the cute little tan from being at the pool so much this summer. You are on the move and into everything these days. You are wearing me out sweet girl.

I think that about covers your 15 month update. You are such a blessing and we love you so very much Pretty Girl!
