15 month stats...20# 14 oz and 30 inches long. She did great at her 15 month check up and didn't cry when the nurse or doctor touched her...only for her vaccines and she recovered pretty quickly. She currently has 8 teeth. She runs everywhere...or as Nathan likes to call it a 'modified trot'. She is still pigeon toed and I hope and pray she will grow out of it (her pediatrician and Laura say it is still possible!)....if not...hopefully ballet helps! She is starting to recognize language and will readily give kisses when you ask her for one. She's getting more cuddly as she gets older but still doesn't sit still very long. She's back to saying 'uh oh' a lot and properly uses it (when she drops something or falls down). She's taken a new interest in Wrigley...she likes to play chase with him and at times he seems to enjoy it too. She LOVES to feed him and walks around with her Puffs container and is very generous towards him. She likes to pet him and play with his tail and she is usually pretty good at not petting too rough. He tolerates her very well and only gets nervous when she flails around a lot. He's no dummy and follows her for Puffs and hangs out around the high chair during meal times. She finally has seemed to become 'attached' to something...she's taken to carrying around the Mickey doll we bought her at WDW...it's the most interest she's shown in a toy so far. We started Kindermusik and still go to Babytime at the library once a week. I cut out her morning nap and so now she just naps in the afternoon for usually around 1.5- 2 hrs if I'm lucky. We've been very lucky and she's really hardly been sick since her birthday, although today she's got a runny nose. Teething doesn't seem to bother her too much from what I've read from symptoms that other kids seem to exhibit.
Her new game is playing in the window shades in the kitchen. She readily plays hide and seek anywhere but really likes to crawl in between the shades. She also likes to get in my closet and play hide and seek in my clothes.
So sneaky....I've been trying to get it on video but by the time I get everything set up she's onto a new activity.
Playing with Wrigley...
Viv's appetite continues to improve....kinda....she's now starting to refuse her mixed veggies and chicken babyfood. She's obsessed with cheese and she will eat cottage cheese. She's still a bit touch and go with fruits and I've gotten her to eat zucchini once. She ate pasta sauce and ground beef for a few days and she seems to like rice. We are making progress....she's down to two 4 oz bottles of organic whole milk a day. She still loves to feed me and oh what fun it is!!
Such a good sharer...(she sure didn't learn to share her food from me!)
So much for clean laundry....she's a one woman destroyer!
We celebrated the guy's birthday on February 8th...
Valentine's Day we traveled to Ames with Adam, Teresa, and my parent's for a men's BB game. It was Adam's and Viv's first experience with Hilton Magic! Viv did great, she danced to the band and sat on laps pretty well.
Our seats were pretty high up, but thanks to Coach Hoiberg tickets are a hot commodity these days!
She slept through much of the 1st half.
Checking out the frozen tundra we like to call Ames from the warmth of Hilton after our win over West Virginia!
