15 months

Our baby girl is 15 months old this week! She's changing so much every day.

 Sometime during the last 3 months, she officially graduated from baby to toddler.

She's ALL OVER the place.
She's walking quite proficiently - running most of the time actually. She has full reign of the house. Up and down stairs with ease - following her brothers everywhere.
She explores constantly. She loves to empty cabinets, trash cans, and kleenex boxes. 

She climbs to the top of anything she can - chairs, stools, tables. If she's awake, there's no leaving her alone for one minute. She's either making a mess or endangering her life. But that's the life of a toddler, right?

She still loves books and animals (enough that she drew kitty whiskers on herself with a pen!).  She's broadened  her dance moves, and she's even started singing on her own.  Her favorite song goes, "Da da da dada da." It's the sweetest thing you've EVER HEARD.

She loves her family and is happiest when we're all home together.

She's down to one nap which gives me roughly 90 minutes of productive time in my day.  She consistently sleeps from 8:00pm to 6:30am at night.
Her hair is getting long and is completely out of control. It's Donald Trump hair - fine and poofy - too long for headbands (not that she would leave them in) and too short for pony tails. Her mom is at a complete loss.
This fridge toy is one of her favorites from Christmas. She loves interchanging the letters and listening to the songs. It's usually the first thing she wants to show any guests that enter our house.
Today, her favorite food is peanut butter sandwiches and applesauce. She still loves most fruits - still no taste for bananas or cantaloupe though. She loves pasta, chicken, and Baby Girl can down three slices of pizza faster than her brothers. She's drinks only one bottle of whole milk first thing in the morning. Sometimes she asks for one after her afternoon nap as well.
She babbles a lot, and her expanding vocabulary includes Mama, Dada, Bubba, ball, whoa, WOW, that, and uh oh. She can point on demand  to her hair, nose, mouth, belly, and feet.
It's clear that she understands almost everything we say to her. She's unfortunately reached that very frustrating stage where she knows exactly what she wants, but still cannot communicate very effectively. This leads to lots of whining and pointing "THAT! THAT! THAT!" and exhaustive tantrums when we don't understand.
She loves to cuddle and be rocked. She's makes smacking noises with her mouth when you ask for a kiss...
We sure love our Sailor June. In the words of her biggest brother, "She like having a pet, but BETTER!"
