Here are Pax's 15 month stats:
Height: 33 in (94%tile)
Weight: 23 lbs 14 oz (45%tile)
Head circumference: 18 3/4 in (60%tile)
And here's what he's been up to. Climbing, running, getting into trouble, exploring, pointing, waving, a little bit of talking, lots of eating, some signing, and being irresistibly adorable!
I regularly find that he has (in a matter of a few seconds) climbed on top of the kitchen table or has made his way on top of the tv stand and is pointing at the people on the tv right in front of him. Now please don't misunderstand, I'm not a neglectful mother. You can turn your back for a few seconds, and he takes his chance. And he's so quiet! :)
Pax doesn't talk a lot, but he enjoys saying "no" and shaking his head. Everett and Pax echo the no's back and forth to each other. He picks up signs a lot more quickly now, and he does a great job signing that he wants a banana and saying thank you after he gets it.
He also is gearing up to that 18 month mark when life gets a lot more...tantrum-y. He shows his frustration by banging his head against the wall, floor, me, anything nearby. Sometimes he lays down in resignation. Oh dear. These days are coming.
And to end on a positive note, some things he loves: his blanket, stuffed animals (in particular his lamb from Aunt Barbara and monkey from cousin Ruby), singing, books, tickles, climbing, bananas, being outside, and DANCING!!!
|I brought the boys to the playground, and it was so windy that it was freezing! I felt so bad making them leave after about 10 minutes. Especially with this happy face!|
|Paxton loves having books read to him. He brings one of us a book and plops down in our lap.|
|Grandma Mary's spaghetti recipe is always a hit.|
|Here he is trying to blow the dandelion seeds. He isn't very effective, but incredibly cute.|
