15 Months Old

Happy 15 month birthday to Caroline. Actually, she's closer to 16 months old but I figured this post was better late than never. Dealing with a 15 month old has its challenges, but Caroline is doing lots of new, funny things (every day, it seems) which makes difficult days a lot more enjoyable. So here are 15 fun facts about Caroline at 15 months old:
1. She is VERY attached to her baby and lovie (a little blanket)...doesn't want to go anywhere or do anything without them!
2. Caroline is quite the little talker (c'mon, did we expect anything less from my child?!?) We have recently been hearing lots of new words and she is now starting to repeat whatever we say (scary :-) Currently, my 2 favorite words she says are "oof" (oops) and "its" (dance). I hear these two words a lot during the day.
3. Caroline has just (as in 2 days ago) started answering "yes" and "no" to questions correctly. I love this b/c she can tell me what she wants and I hate this b/c she can tell me what she wants (j/k :-) For awhile, she only answered "yes" to questions which was great . But now she says "nah" if she doesn't want/like something.
4. She is a HUGE smiler but not a big laugher...you have to work hard for those belly laughs but she will smile at anything and everything she sees.
5. We are going through a major Mommy phase right now. This is our first real issue with separation anxiety...I hope it passes quickly!

6. Caroline's favorite summer activity is SWIMMING.

7. She will sign "thank you" and say it ("kuku") when prompted and, today, she did it without any prompting when I gave her a bow she wanted to put on her baby (I know I know, please don't judge :-) I hope that was the first of many polite "thank yous"

8. Pretend play has started in our house...Caroline loves to cover her baby up with a blanket, hold a finger up to her mouth and say "shhh", then say "nigh nigh"

9. Her favorite show is the Backyardigans

10. Favorite food at the moment: blueberries

11. Dance moves include head banging, snapping and stomping around

12. Caroline has a major love for any and all Mexican food (just like her parents!!)

13. Any animal Caroline sees is a "woof"

14. If allowed, she would play ALL day with my keys ("gee") and cell phone.

15. Current Stats: Height, 30 1/2 inches (50th %); Weight, 22 pounds & 13 ounces (50th %); Head Circumference, 17 1/2 inches (25th %); Caroline has her four front top teeth with two more coming in beside them, three front bottom teeth, and all four 1 year molars...she has had 13 teeth come in in 5 months!!
