Isabelle: 15 Months!

Dear Squiz,

You have really learned how to walk this month!  What a big accomplishment! You started out the month with a few hesitant steps here and there and now you're practically running!  Here's a little look at the beginning compared to the end of the month:

I love how excited you always are to see Daddy πŸ’—

And there are a few other fun "walking" videos that I'll throw in:

It was so funny watching you bounce around and squeal while you geared up for walking!  It took you awhile to get there (just like it did with your sisters), but you learned quickly and now you walk everywhere!  You are growing up so fast!

As always, you love to be outside, and I shudder for the long winter when it is too cold to play out there.

Halloween was this month, and our family dressed as the emotions from Inside Out.  All of them were so fitting (except maybe mine).  Daddy was Anger (ha ha!), I was Fear, you were Sadness, Addy was Disgust, and Emma was Joy.  Here we are in all our glory:

We went to the Baseshore Farms fall festival, and you were in your element because there was food and you were outside πŸ˜‰

We spent lots of time watching your sisters' soccer games this month, and when the weather got chilly you retreated to the van with some headphones 😊

Here are some more pictures of your Halloween costume.  We had a blue wig for you, but you wouldn't keep it on, so we ended up spray painting your hair blue instead.

Another thing you've been loving is our trampoline.  It's a great size for you and you are so proud of yourself.  I love when you say, "I did it!"

And how about some more outdoor pictures for good measure.  Izzy + outside + food = fun!

You've been loving Adventure Park now that you're on the move!

Here are your 15 Month stats:

Height: 2' 7.5" (76th percentile)
Weight: 21 lbs 6 oz (49th percentile)
HC: 48.5 cm (98th percentile)
BMI: 15.15 kg/m2

Your appointment went well and you got a bunch of vaccines, which you handled like a champ.  It's heartbreaking for mama to watch you get those and then look at me with that terrified face while you silently scream... which turns into a very loud scream.  But we handled it and we're all good, right?
You are developing according to schedule and much more verbal than normal, which is right on par with your sisters.  Dr. Zimmerman was very impressed with your verbal skills.  You have started showing signs of being a picky eater, so we need to work on it, but I have a feeling it's going to be a long, frustrating couple of years with that, as it is with most kids.  You are able to feed yourself, and you don't want anyone else to help you, which gets awfully messy and makes mama cringe a little bit.  But I know that it's how you learn, so I just turn away and let you go to town πŸ˜‰

You love playing with walking toys these days as you learn to maneuver around.  The basement is always a great place to be, and you have lots of fun with your sisters down there.  

There is nothing too new with sleep.  You either take one nap a day or two, depending on the day.  And you sleep from 7pm-7am at night.  No middle of the night waking, thank goodness.  We haven't had to deal with that in many, many months.  I have no idea how parents of children your age still get up with them at night.  I'd be a zombie.  So, though you give us our fair share of gray hairs, you sleep like a champ and we are so grateful for that!

We love you Squizzers!  Congrats on learning the big milestone of walking!

(Ha ha, the only pictures I have of you and I from this month are Halloween ones!)

I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be πŸ’—
