15 Months

I am a day early but Saturdays get busy so I am posting today.

This little 15 month old is so adorable and fun!

Skills: She is starting to say a few words. She says bye pretty clear. She also says ba for ball, do for dog, ba for bath, and ru is what a dog says. She sort of signs all done but doesn't always use it correctly.

Likes: All things girly! Baby dolls, purses, necklaces, shoes. She also loves books. She brings me books all day long and then will back up and sit on my lap for me to read to her. She likes being outside. She also loves for me to put shoes on her. She will bring me a pair of shoes and want me to put them on her, even if she is already wearing shoes. She still loves milk too. Oh and recently she has become attached to her blanket. It is one of her Aden and Anais swaddle blankets. She now has to sleep with her baby doll and blanket.

Struggles: We have made a little progress on vegetables. She seems to like green beans! She has also eaten broccoli and maybe a couple other things. She still needs to branch out more though. We have also been working on teaching her obedience by disciplining her when she clearly understands but disobeys. She definitely knows the word no, although she doesn't always choose to obey. She has gotten much better about not throwing things off the high chair. She still goes after the oven knobs but is getting better at minding. Also, she can become easily frustrated when she can't do something - like get her shopping cart across the raised floor or around furniture. This results in repeated banging and fussing. I try to remind her to have a joyful attitude :)

Schedule: I think we are back to the 6AM wake up time after the time change. That means back to her 8:30ish AM, and 1:30ish PM naps. Times vary but usually at least an hour each. Bedtime still between 7:00 and 7:30.

She kept running off when I was trying to take pictures of her in her chair.

Aww I love that she is such a girly girl!! :) What a sweetie. She looks so grown up with her hair getting so long. So pretty. Lids is the same in getting frustrated with things like when she is pushing her doll stroller and it gets stuck on something. Ohh toddlers!
