15 Months!

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Saturday Ansleigh turned 15 months old. Yesterday I took her to the Doctor's office for her check-up.

She weighs 21 lbs and she is 31 inches tall. Her percentiles were 25% for weight, 50% for height, and 95% for her head...hahahaha. She needs room for all those brains :)

She only got one shot (because there is a shortage of 1 and we are waiting until she is two for her MMR). She was not a happy camper and it was extremely difficult to hold her down.

Currently she still only has 5 teeth...there is one that has been "about to break through" for about two months now. She is getting steadier on her feet each and every day. She can basically run now (which she does in a very prissy way...might I add). She is so fast too! If you blink your eyes, she is gone!

She LOVES being outside and will throw a fit if she thinks she has missed a chance to go outside.

She's gotten to where she'll want to get up on the couch and sit with you, but not always for very long. She is super attached to her pink blanket and wants it 95% of the time. We have a back-up one for when one needs to be washed but as much as she uses that thing, we may need to get 4 or 5 more back-ups...haha.

As far as talking goes, she understands SOOOO much and can communicate with you somewhat. She doesn't know a ton of words yet, but she will get there. Right now she is actually ahead in the words she can/has/will say. She isn't really very consistent with many of her words but the Doctor told me that it is the point that she has said them and clearly indicates she knows what she is talking about.

Her current list of words:

  • hey (word said most often)
  • momma (second word said most often)
  • dada or daddeeeee :)
  • oh
  • bow
  • ball
  • minh (mine)
  • no
  • dank (thanks)--she just started doing this
There are lots of things that if we ask her where it is, she will look for it and find it. Those are:
  • her ball
  • bat
  • pinky (blanket)
  • passie
  • sippy
Often if you ask her a question, she will shrug her shoulders and hold up her hands like "I don't know." She does it all the time. It is awesome.

She has the happiest little personality!

Right now her favorite things to eat are grilled cheese sandwiches, yogurt bites, and mini teddy grahams. Her favorite tv shows are The Backyardigans and Yo Gabba Gabba. She would watch tv all day long if I would let her. She likes to "read" books but only by herself and quite often upside down and from back to front.

Her feet are still super tiny--wearing an infant size 3(ish) depending on the shoe. She's wearing 12-18 months clothes.

While going through all the normal questions yesterday at her check-up, I was asked if she was showing any signs of potty-training and of course, I said no. Her pediatrician suggested that we buy her a potty and just let her get used to sitting on it. Of course, I was thinking "Now?!?!" but he said the sooner she has it, the sooner she is more likely to try sitting on it and mimicking me which could lead to her wanting to go a lot sooner and not being so afraid of it. So...I guess we'll be heading to Target soon to buy a potty. Any suggestions?

Well...those are her updates. Just wanted to share!

What a sweetie....She's a tiny little thing. I don't know what that is like. Mary Selwyn has been 90-95% since the day she was born...ha ha.
