Brinley is now 15 months old! Well, actually she turned 15 mo 3 weeks ago. I am just a little late on this one.
At her 15 mo appointment Brinley weighed 22 lbs and was 32 inches tall (although I am not sure how accurate those measurements actually are).
Some of Brinley’s favorite things right now include:
Climbing. Climbing off the bed, onto the couch, and from one piece of furniture to the next. She really likes to climb onto our coffee table and stand right on the very edge.
Talking. Brinley jabbers all day long. She doesn’t say much you can recognize although she has come a long way in the last couple weeks. She mimics sounds all the time. She says momma, dadda, go, bye, and dog. She also roars when she sees pictures of bears. Most things she says don’t really sound like the word she is actually saying though.
Brinley loves going to the park, mostly just to play in the sand, but she also loves going down the slides.
Whenever we put on her shoes and her coat she will go and wait next to the door until you let her outside. She LOVES being outside. She cries when we have to go in. Recently she has started to try to get the door handle. I just hope she doesn’t grow too fast so I don’t have to worry about that.
Some of her favorite foods include pasta with red sauce, graham crackers, yogurt, mandarin oranges (she will definitely down a whole can in one sitting if I let her), and pretty much anything else but vegetables. The only vegetable she’ll eat is green peas. When she is hungry she now will just go and bang on our pantry now. Funny girl.
Brinley is fascinated by animals of any kind, but she especially loves dogs. She is also fascinated by babies and gets excited if she sees one in a book or on t.v., or even better, in real life.
Her favorite place in our apartment is her book corner. She used to just hang out in her toy area, but now she really spends most of her time playing with her books. All of her books with animals in them are her favorite (go figure).
She loves laying down on any blanket, but she has decided that one blanket she has in particular is her favorite and she now won’t leave her crib without taking it with her. She also loves to blow kisses and has finally caught on to a few signs.
Here are some recent pictures:
We are amazed daily at something she decides to do. I have to say that this is definitely my favorite stage yet (although I think I say that at every stage). She is just so much fun to be around and to laugh with. Love you Brin!
