Fifteen Months...

I say this every month, but why must babies grow so fast?!

Londyn Grace turned fifteen months on Friday!

She is getting so big and seeming less and less like a baby every day!

She is still a peanut weight wise tipping the scales at just 19 pounds 15.5 ounces! I haven't measured her height lately. She is still fitting nicely into her 12 month clothes. She now has 8 teeth, four top and four bottom with no signs of any molars yet!

We celebrated 15 months of nursing last week and I couldn't be more thrilled! The bond we have is so sweet and our nursing sessions are pretty much the only time she is still during the day! It makes for a very hungry mama since I am technically feeding three people, but my midwife is fine with it as long as I eat enough calories! (No worries there though! I am eating us out of house and home!)

She is eating better! She seems to have her largest appetite at breakfast usually eating a yogurt cup and Chex cereal. After I change her diaper in the mornings, I ask her if she wants to eat breakfast and she points to the kitchen!

Words are still few and far between, but she does say "this" a lot when pointing. Other words include Dada, Mama, ball, hot, Pop Pop, eye (when she points to her eyes), tree (when we had the Christmas tree up), dog (my cousin came to visit and brought her little dog), hi and bye. Last night she said "yucky!"

She is napping well. She typically takes one nap in the afternoon that lasts from 1.5-2 hours. Sleeping at night is still the same. We are going to look at a toddler bed on Craigslist tomorrow. We will probably just transition to that instead of the crib since the new baby will need to the crib soon anyway and LG has never slept in it all night long!

She loves to FaceTime with her grandparents. Technology is such a wonderful thing when miles separate us from those we love the most! She gives the sweetest open-mouth kisses to the screen.

She is constantly doing something new that just amazes me and makes it on my running list of accomplishments!

Here is our list for this month:

12/4 drank out of a straw and had first kids meal at Panera

12/5 pointed to the tree and said "tree!"

Climbed in bouncy seat and sat down by yourself!

12/8 learned how to move your little pink car with your feet
Carried a Santa decoration around and said, "Ho! Ho! Ho!"

12/9 pointed to radiator and said "hot!"
Sang "Yes I do!" when Mimi was singing her song to you
Spent your first night away from mama and did very well! We won't make a habit of it though!

12/10 smiled and said "cheese" copying me!

12/12 were carrying my phone around when you saw the charger laying on the floor so you picked it up and tried to plug it in!

12/14 got really excited when we woke up to it snowing, pointed to the window and jabbered about it

Went out and stood in it (still not 100% over your cold so I didn't want you to play in it)

Said "no!" after Daddy told you "no" asking you not to touch something.

12/18 said "Ben"  calling Uncle Ben

12/19 I asked you if you needed a diaper change and you pointed to your diaper

12/20 we were listening to Christmas music and heard the part "chestnuts go pop pop pop" and you said "pop pop pop!"

Said "Jesus" after I was singing it while looking at your Jesus Loves the Little Children book

12/21 I couldn't find my pen while wrapping and labeling Christmas gifts so I said "Goosey, where is Mama's pen?" You started looking around and when I spotted it I pointed at it. You walked over, picked it up, and brought it to me!

Daddy said, "Where's your ball?" You kept looking, picking up your toys and looking underneath them until you found it!

12/23 had your second Christmas morning at home. Loved the cozy coupe we got you!

12/24 had Christmas Eve with Mimi, Pop Pop, Uncle Johnny, Auntie M & Tammy! Loved the kitchen Mimi & Pop Pop made you!

Announced to the family that you are going to be a big sister!

12/25 had Christmas morning with Grammy, Grandpap, Uncle Ben, Uncle Matt, Aunt Rebekah, baby Sonya, Oma & Opa. Loved her new piano and working microphone.

12/26 got out of bed by herself

Said "Happy Birthday!" over and over again at Shady Maple after hearing several tables singing it!

12/27 shook head no copying me

12/28 shook head no when she didn't want something at dinner!

12/30 folded hands to pray at lunch when we asked you to!

climbed into the empty crockpot that was sitting on the kitchen floor and sat down in it!

Dipped your French fries in ketchup all by yourself at dinner!

It's been a wonderful month of making holiday memories, celebrating Christmas and finding out that our sweet baby girl is going to be a big sister!

Can't wait to see what she learns next! 

We love you, Goosey, more than you'll ever know!!

(Tomorrow I will post my first weekly bumpdate for baby number two and hopefully get our Christmas Eve/Day post up this week as well!)


  1. I know what you mean, I wish I could keep Kendall this age for a little bit longer. She is so much fun at this age and so funny. Who knew a 14/15 month old could be so funny. LG is so adorable and her smile is just the sweetest
