Lainey 15 months

I feel like I need to keep documenting Lainey's monthly updates. It is hard to see the progress when you are with someone everyday, and I definitely don't remember what to compare it to the previous month if I don't write it down. So here is what is going on with her now.

At her 15 month check up she was 19 1/2 lbs (25%), and heights was 75%. Those are approximations since I am too lazy to dig up her well check sheet. 

She is making a LOT more sounds. M, B, D, P, raspberries, squeals, etc. It is so good to hear her learn to make new noises. She used to be so quiet all the time. In the past her therapy sessions were usually silent (on her part). Her  speech therapist was very impressed with all the sounds she is trying to make. No words, but this is good progress.

She is now super fast at crawling. She easily pulls up on anything, and can get down safely. She will cruise a little bit along couch or low table or tub, has better balance, and is starting to take a few steps while pushing an object (like a small chair).

She is still majorly a mama's girl. Surprisingly she doesn't cry when dropped off in child care (fingers crossed). But sometimes she can't handle me leaving the room at home or if someone else is holding her she will start leaning/lunging toward me.

She is very affectionate. She loves to give hugs, she likes "burrowing", wrestling, etc. I love how loving she is. She likes to give Cambry hugs too but it is a little more like tackling sometimes because she will raise her arms up and then just fall in/on Cambry. 

She still takes 2 naps a day. The length varies. Usually 45 min - 1 1/2 hours. Sometimes she will only take one nap if we have church or Divine Design where she doesn't sleep, and then her nap will be about 2 hours.

She takes 3 bottles plus baby food. She is still on nutramigen because dairy seems to aggravate her reflux and we are still working on chewing.

I love this little girl. I love it when she wakes up with wild hair in her footie pajamas with a paci in her mouth and a paci in each hand. Cracks me up. I love how hyper she gets at night when Greg wrestles with the girls and she is so silly and fun. I feel like I can never get a good picture of her because she will never stay still. I can hardly cook at all because she will try to remove everything from the kitchen cabinets and child locks don't stop her. She keeps me on my toes all day long!
