15 Months Old

Once again, I'm late posting an update on Shaylin.  I think I'll save the next one when she turns 18 months.

- Shaylin's vocabulary continues to improve.  Other than the words she was saying last month, she also says ball, duck, hi, hey, bye or bye-bye, Minnie, Elmo, baby, & book.  Best of all, she's saying momma finally!  And she says it a lot!  It might get annoying in the future but right now I can't imagine it would considering how long I've been waiting to hear it.  And this would be longer than just 15 months.

- She walks like a pro.  She tries to run but it's a short distance & then she falls.  She also does this cute little stomping action.

- Her dancing skills are improving.  She still does her booty bounce but also sways side to side or twists.

- She knows the sounds that a dog, cat, & duck make.

- She recently rediscovered her bouncy seat & loves to just lay in it or she'll get on her knees & bounce in it.

- Sleep is wonderful now.  I think we finally made it!  She takes one nap a day, going down by 1:30 or 2:00 & sleeps at least 2 1/2 hours but sometimes as much as 3 hours.  Bedtime is at 8:00 & she sleeps till at least 8am.

- At her 15 month checkup on Monday Shaylin weighed exactly 20 lbs. & was 30" tall.  Her height is still in the 50th percentile & her weight has bumped her back up to the 10th percentile.

- We recently switched her to a convertible carseat & installed it front-facing, mostly because we had difficulty making it feel secure while rear-facing.  However, I am considering trying the rear-facing again if we can get it to work.  This will be for a future post.
