15 Months

Brooks turned 15 months old on February 4th. I'm a little behind in posting but wanted to make sure I did so I would remember what he was up to these days.

Brooks:



-You wear 12-18 month clothes
-You are in size 4 diapers
-You can point to your nose, ears, eyes and mouth when we ask you to show us what they are
-Emma taught you how to flip and you can do it by yourself and try all the time
-You can now climb on the couch and chair in the living room (you are our little monkey)
-Your vocabulary has grown so much. You can say mama, dada, Emma, Nana, bye, yea, dog, stinky, night night, hi, hot, down stairs, bum bum, yum, cheese (when we take your picture), pa pa (for paci), I don't know and thank you. Some of these are so clear everyone would know what they are and others like down stairs, I don't know and thank you might not be quite as clear, although we know what you are saying. There are several other words you are so close to saying, you just haven't mastered them yet
-You blow kisses and it's so sweet
-You sleep from 8 at night to about 7 or 8 the next morning
-You normally only take one 2 hour nap in the afternoon
-When you are hungry or thirsty you go to the refrigerator or the pantry and stand there till we come and if we don't you come and get us and take us over there.
-You have your own little vacuum and you love it (although you prefer the big one). Anytime I'm vacuuming you get it out and follow me all over the house. If I move something (that's light of course) to vacuum you come behind me and move it and vacuum and then put it back. It's too cute!
-You love to crawl up and slide down the steps
-You love to run around and play chase



We love you so, so much and can't believe how big you have gotten and how much you have grown. You are so laid back, yet you have just enough of a temper to let us all know you are here. You adore Emma and are fascinated with Zoe (our dog). Your daddy was in charge of the pictures this time and these are the best 2 we got!

We went to the doctor for your checkup Friday and you weigh exactly 20 lbs (3% for weight) and you are 32 inches tall (75% for height). You had a great checkup and Dr. Blair said you were perfect, which we already knew!

We love you sweet baby boy!!

OK...our boys have something in common...the vacumming hobby! A Griffin-sized vacuum is the ONLY thing Griff asked Santa for this year. Since Santa came through, that's about all Griff does in the house!!! Guess both boys will make good husbands one day:)
