15 months

First and foremost...THANK YOU for all the congrats!!

I'm a week late on this one, but better late than never, right?! Just go with it. ;) Right before Christmas, we hit the 15-month mark! Unreal! This little monkey is growing up WAY too fast. And, like other moms would probably say, it just keeps getting better!

Fun facts (for me, atleast!)--
-14 teeth, with 2 more on the bottom ready to show any day
-Loves to point. Anything that catches his attention, he points at and grunts. At mom and dad's house, it's usually cookies!
-Flicking light switches on and off is like an Olympic sport in our house
-He loves other kids. Whenever we're around other kids, he stares them down and then squeals with delight! So fun! (I hope he feels the same about his baby brother or sister...)
-He's started to notice his toys. Yes, this seems weird, but he has never really been interested in all the toys we have at the house. Too many other things to investigate. But recently, he's really started to enjoy pushing trucks around (vroom, vroom!) and no matter where he goes, he likes to have something in each hand!
-He's started to repeat more words, and staples are dog, more, dada (dadddddyyyy!), and mamaaaaa. Though he doesn't talk a lot of English, he seems to be fluent in Chinese ;)
-Though he doesn't say a ton, he surprises me with how much he understands! Smarty pants!
-Such a good sleeper! We're still on 2 naps a day (most everyday), and he usually sleeps 1.5-2 hours at each nap. Sometimes more. It's great to be able to say, "Are you ready for a nap?" and he has a look that just says, "Yes, I'm ready!"
-He loves playing chase. Especially around the table. He'll go into the kitchen, crouch down and freeze with a smile on his face and just wait for someone to come chase him!
-Meal time (lunch & dinner) have been challenging recently. He doesn't like meat and has decided that any vegetables are of the devil. But fruit of any kind and pasta are still hits. Dr.H suggested that I give him some vegetable juice and avoid the "fight," which could cause him to hate mealtime altogether. I like that plan!

15 month stats: (I'm going to put the percentages, but I've noticed on other mommy blogs that doctors must all use different charts. Some have higher numbers with lower percentages and vice versa--makes no sense to me. Are percentages even important?!?!)
-Weight: 25lb, 10oz; 75%
-Height: 32 in; 75%
-Head Circumference: 19 1/4 in; 90%

Congrats on #2! What a blessing! Cute pictures, but they for sure get harder when the little ones grow up.
