Somehow this little man is 15 months already. It seems like his first birthday was yesterday, and he was born the day before that. Time flies when you're having fun, right? Bitty celebrated his 1/4 birthday with a run on the beach on our last day of vacation. This morning he went for his 15 month check up with Dr. Cata and he is developing normally (although a little slow in the speech department, but is still ahead of where his brother was at this age). He is a champ at using a spoon and especially a fork. He loves imitating his big brother (and his big brother loves imitating him as well). He is working on his 4th molar and as soon as that bad boy comes through we plan on ditching the binky (pacifier). Bitty is pretty coordinated and loves to throw balls and dig in the sandbox.
His list of (kinda) words includes:
His signs include:
I'm sure there are a few that I'm not thinking of right now. We're not lighting the world on fire, but its a start. I'm hoping that when we lose the binky he will pick up more quickly. Bugman took a huge language jump between 15 and 18 months.
Official stats are:
weight: 21lbs 1oz - 10th percentile
height: 30.75" - 35th percentile
head circumference: 47.8cm - 70th percentile
Even though he's still little with a melon for a head he's staying on his own growth curve (and gaining a little height)
