15 months!

Dear Ad,

You are 15 months old now and such a fun little girl!  You love going to the park and seeing other kids, so we have been trying to take you there a lot lately.  Now that you are an expert walker it's a lot easier to go places like the park than it was before.  You also enjoy the nursery at the gym since you can play with other kids there too.  You will be starting pre-school (or so they call it) in September, and I'm sure you'll love it!

Here are your 15 month stats from the doctor's office:
Weight: 21lbs 6.5oz (55th percentile)
Length: 31 inches (70th percentile)
Head Circ: 47.5cm (90th percentile)
You are starting to become more of a picky eater and you have mastered the art of secretly feeding Daisy what you don't want.  We have been going out to eat a lot lately and so you've been eating a lot more junk, but we're going to try to change that and get you back on track with your veggies ;)  You also are becoming Miss Independent and you want to feed yourself everything, even messy things from a spoon and that makes me cringe.  I want to feed it to you to contain the mess, but then again, I know you need to learn to do it yourself.  So mealtime has become a lot messier than it once was.  Sigh.  Mommy hates a mess, but I guess Mommy needs to get over that, huh?

Speaking of a mess....

We went strawberry picking with some of my friends from work on your 15 month birthday and you became a complete disaster.  Here's how it started...

Yup, you decided to lounge out in the strawberry patches!

Which resulted in your butt looking like this...

But you didn't seem to mind.  You just kept on eating...

And posing for the camera :)

Here are some "before" photos.  All nice and clean:

I had to strip you down completely, change your diaper (because the strawberry juice seeped through your pants onto your diaper), and wash you with wipes before I could put you in the car.  Talk about a mess.  But you had fun, so that's all that matters :)  The, once we got home I figured we'd have lasagna for dinner since your cleanliness was already a lost cause for the day. 

Lately you have also been mimicking a lot of words that we say.  And the amount that you are always learning never ceases to amaze me.  You make the noises of dogs, ducks, and cows on command.  You can point to a lot of your body parts, you know where your different articles of clothing go and you like to "help" get dressed, and you know all of your toys by name, as well as multiple other things in the house.  Now when we tell you to go to your high chair to eat, you go there and wait for us to lift you into it.  It's awesome to watch you learn new things!

Giving kisses/blowing kisses has been one of your favorite things to this past month.  You love to give Daddy and me kisses complete with the kissy noise, which makes us laugh, and in turn makes you laugh.  And you blow kisses to anyone and everyone that you meet.  In a restaurant, grocery store, anywhere.  In fact, we were leaving Harris Teeter the other day and when I said, "Say Bye Bye Harris Teeter", you turned around and blew the store a kiss.  It's so precious, and I love it!

Happy 15 month birthday Addy Marie!!  Mommy and Daddy love you to pieces!!
