(At her Doctors appointment)
Elise had her 15 month checkup on Thursday! I can't believe how big she is!! Here are her stats:
Height: 31 inches (75%)
Weight: 21 lbs. 5 1/2 oz. (60%)
Head: 45.6 cm
She kicked and screamed while the doctor examined her eyes, nose, and mouth and as much fun as that was the doctor said that is exactly what he should be seeing at this age!
She really has grown so much in these past few weeks! She has learned to walk! Not perfect and not all the time, but she can do it! Each day she walks a little more around the apartment. It's only a matter of time before she will be doing it full time!
She does know a few words! She knows Mom, Dad, baby, ball, and of course, no! She prefers to use no most of the time, but in a pinch the word "ma" means anything and everything she wants at that moment.
(I decided to put some scrap fabric from a project around her head! To my surprise, she liked it!!)
She loves music and to clap her hands and pick up her feet! Whether it is from the radio, a tv show, or us singing she always gets excited to hear music!
She loves books and I will often find her in her room going through her big basket of books pulling them out and turning the pages on all of them. This melts my heart- I love that she loves her books so much!
She also has started to throw little tantrums. They don't last long but she definitely is starting to understand that she doesn't always get her way, and she doesn't like it!
Elise loves to eat and will eat just about anything you offer to her!! We are very happy that she is such a great eater! She must take after her Mom ;)
(After eating a huge mouthful of some Andes Mint pie!! Messy much?)
Elise, we love you so much!! It is so much fun to be here and see you go through all of these big changes!!
