Happy 15 Months Little Man!

Dear Noah,

Sometimes it gets difficult to log in and update your book as you keep me so very busy! You are now 15 months and such a little man. You are very much toddler! This is proven through your independent attitude and the tantrums that you like to throw. So, here is a load down of the good, bad and the ugly.

The Good:
-You are almost walking. So far you have taken 5 steps in a row by yourself. We know you can walk, you just haven't realized it yet!
-You have finally decided that table food is it for you. You will eat anything that we put on your plate. Fruits, veggies, meat, crackers, yogurt, cheese....anything. You have learned some new words to support your eating your habits: Cheese, cracker, milk, juice and cado (avocado). It really helps me in knowing what you want. You also sign done and more which helps.
-You feed yourself with forks and spoons. It is fun to watch you work on putting a piece of food on your fork. Even though it takes you a few stabs, you are so proud when you do it.
-You still through the ball, just further. However, now you throw it in the air and catch it. And, you are trying to dribble. Ask me for videos, I have tons.
-You love to talk up a storm! You have about 20 words that you say clearly. Here are the newest words: Mommy (finally!), cup, puppy, blankie, moo (with the lips perched), and truck.
-You know where your hair, nose, feet, eyes, ears, and mouth are.

The Bad:
-Tantrums. If you don't get your scream, kick, cry and arch your back.
-Hitting. This is something you think is a game. It's been hard to teach you that it's not.

The Ugly:
-A few too many ear infections.

As you can see there is a lot of growing happening here. Not only developmentally, but physically too. I just took you to the doctor and they said you were 28lbs and 3oz. You are officially wearing 24 month clothing too. We sure love watching you do all this growing! But, despite all of it, I love that when it is time to go to bed, you will snuggle in my arms and fall asleep on my shoulder. I will sit there forever smelling your sweet baby scent and reminding myself that you are still my little baby boy.

I love you,
