Gracyn :: 15 months

Age: 15 months old. Holy crap. A full-on toddler- walking, running, jabbering, pointing, laughing. She's getting soooo old and is doing soooo many things!

Stats: 23 pounds and 30-ish inches. I'm totally guessing here. She doesn't stand still long enough for us to measure her so we'll just go with estimates here.

Clothes: mostly 12-18 month stuff. The 18 month shirts and pants from Old Navy and Target fit really well. The 18 month size in Carters is a little big still - especially pants. Her spring/summer wardrobe will consist of cute t-shirts, leggings, rompers and jean shorts. A pair of jean shorts on a baby is the best.

Favorite Foods: applesauce, mangoes, goldfish crackers, animal crackers, toast with peanut butter. This girl will still eat just about anything you put in front of her. Her least favorite at the time is probably avocado. Must be a texture thing or something. She'll still try it but prefers to eat something else if she has the choice. She can use a fork and a spoon and we're working on eating off a plate instead of chucking it over the side of her highchair.

Favorite Toys: Little People car - she's obsessed with turning the music on and stomping her feet to the beat. Kinda like this but without the provocative gyrating and super-toned buttocks. She also loves her baby dolls, blankies, rocking chair, books, and your cell phone.

Words: mama, dada (sometimes da-dy), hi, bye-bye, night-night (nigh-nigh), bubble (bu-buh), book (ock), more (moh), uh-oh, and I think she can say "cracker" but it comes out sounding more like "cock" so I'm not 100% sure on that one... We have a few animal sounds too: dog (oof-oof in a high-pitched squeal), cow (mooooo in a deep baby voice) and horsey (eee-eee-eee, again in the most perfect high-pitched noise). She is constantly jabbering and making sounds. It won't be long before she's speaking in full sentences and I'll be wondering once again how in the hell my little baby grew up so fast.

This girl definitely keeps us on our toes. She loves to give "high-fives" and her facial expressions these days are over the top. She's a bit dramatic when she doesn't get her way, we've reached the fun stage where she cries when I leave her at daycare (my heart gets ripped out every's awesome.) and she's definitely a mama's girl at this point. Poor daddy. She loves, loves, LOVES being outside - walking up to the mailbox is her jam. She's a big help as we load the dishwasher after dinner. And by "big help" I mean she tries to climb inside and lick the dirty dishes. She knows that we sweep the floor after we eat (I'm not sure if this is a good thing or just a sad reminder that all I do with my life at home is sweep the damn floor hoping to keep the house somewhat presentable - I sweep so much my 15 month old knows how to sweep...) and loves to throw things away.

Everyone says this, but THIS is my most favorite age yet. She's a little person now; she's able to tell you what she wants or doesn't want. She can tease and be silly. It's so fun. Gracyn, you are pretty much awesome in every single way and we love you to pieces. I cannot wait to see what you do next!

  1. I love these updates because I don't get to see her that often so I feel like I still know what's going on. Please get her words on video and post them, especially the sound effects :) Love you!
