15 months

Here's Audrey playing (or hiding) under the exam table at the pediatricians office this morning. It seems as though she may have known what was to come in the very near future, shots. It rips your heart out a little to hear your child make a cry like no other, the owwwwwie cry. But other than that, the appointment went great. The Dr. quizzed her on her facial features. She was impressed Audrey knew where her hair was and laughed when she showed her where her tongue was, she stuck it way out. She said kids don't usually learn features such as hair and tongue until at least 18 months. I told her about the week or two that she went on the potty and that she still goes every once in awhile. I told her she even goes "poop". When Audrey heard me say that, she held her breath and grunted as though she had to "go". The Dr. said that was one of the funniest things she's ever seen! That's my girl! :)

The Dr. did seem a bit disappointed that she wasn't walking yet but she's convinced it will happen very soon. She watched as I walked with her while she only had hold of one of my fingers and walked around the room. She said she thinks she can walk on her own she just doesn't have the confidence yet. But she did stand on her own, no hands! And she learned how to crawl up and down the stairs a few weeks ago which I would think would be harder to figure out than walking but I guess she'll do it when she's ready. I'm going to try to enjoy the last little bit of this crawling stage while I can!

Overall, she's still one happy, healthy and full of life little girl!! Her hair is getting curlier by the day!! She is continuing learning sign language, she can sign about 10-12 signs. And she's talking more too!! She can say Mama, Daddy, Baby, nigh nigh (night night) and her favorite of all bubbo (bubble) She can make the sound for a dog and an elephant (she makes kind of a blowing sound and puts her arm in the air like a trunk :) She seems to understand everything we say. She knows what she wants and does her best to tell us exactly that! She continues to be such a joy to us! She really does make me laugh to tears almost every day! Here's her 15 month stats:

Weight: 21 lb 14oz (25-50%)

Height: 31 1/2 inches (75%)

Head: 18 1/2 (75%)

Here she is trying to eat like a big girl at the table

Watching TV and eating Cheerios in her easy chair

It's official and in stores now. She's on the box of the new Combi jumper!
Look Mom! It's me!
