15 month stats

Emmalyn's 15 month Stats (better late than never)

Weight - 18lb 6oz (5th percentile)

Height - 30in (5th percentile)

Head - 17.5in (10th percentile)

Size of clothes - 6-9 month to 12 months

Eye color - very brown

Sleep - 8-10 hours a night

Food - getting a little more picky.  One day she will like something (ie. chicken salad) and the next day she won't.  If I try giving her the same thing a week later she'll eat it.  I usually have 2 or 3 options in my head for meal times in case she decides she doesn't want my first choice.  I guess she is just a girl changing her mind on a whim. 
Some foods she does love:
peanut butter
sweet tea


Milestones -  she now runs instead of walking.  She's still a little slow on the verbal skills, but communicates well with sign language.  She knows her body parts and can point to them (she thinks it is so fun).  She is able to follow more complex commands like "go get another book and bring it to mommy so we can read it" and "put it in the trash can."  She also now walks to the car when we get ready to go somewhere instead of me carrying her (I'm kind of sad about this one!).

Current words:
Bop (what we call Caleb's dad)
uh oh
thank you
She makes owl, cat, dog, cow and bird noises

Favorite activities - Running around telling the dogs to "stop," walking outside (she loves the outdoors!), "helping" me cook, playing with make up, rearranging the clean clothes that I just folded, trying to fit in the smallest place that she can, putting tops back on things like bottles and cans.  She will hand you a bottled drink for you to open a give her some.  She loves to climb on and off the couches and plays a new game that I've (very intelligently named) "up down" wear she sits in your lap and stands up and waits for you to say "up" then she sits back down and waits for you to say "down" and repeats this about twenty times.

And here are some recent pictures.

Last week our neighbors got a puppy named Sonny.  Emmy is not too sure about him because he likes to gnaw on her pants, hands, shoes, you name it.  

She got really good at telling him to stop though.

Like I said before, she loves to play outside!  I think this is why she is so attached to Bop because he takes her outside a lot and lets her roam around on their spacious property.

Her new outfit came from a thrift store that Ama (Caleb's mom) found!

One of my new favorite photos of her.

This is Emmy blowing like the wind.

What kid doesn't like bubbles?
