Madelyn: 15 Months


Happy 15 months sweet girl.

You have had a full month!  First off, you welcomed baby brother Theo into the world!!  When mommy started having contractions with Theo, Grandma Izzy came over to pick you up.  You spent 4 days with she and Grandpa Tom and you loved every minute of it!  Grandma Izzy fixed you yummy food and Grandpa Tom took you on many walks around the neighborhood.  You had fun with all their toys and slept like a champ in their pack and play.  You are such a good girl.  You came by the hospital the afternoon that your brother was born.  There were a lot of people in the room so I think you were a little overwhelmed AND you had 4 top teeth coming in at that time.  So I'm sure your teeth were hurting.  But you were a trooper and let us take some pictures with you and Theo.  You came home the Monday after Theo was born and pointed at him, touched his head, gave him kisses and loved on him.  Gigi came in town that day as well so I know you were loving all the attention!  Since then, you have been the same way with your brother.  Very loving and giving lots of kisses.  Such a sweet, sweet girl.

Here are some other happenings during this month...

-We went to the doctor this morning and you weigh 22 lbs 10oz and are 30" tall!  You are a healthy girl.

-Still talking quite a bit.  No new words, but I'm sure they'll come soon enough.

-Still in a size 4 diaper and overnight diapers during the evening.

-You moved up to mostly 18 month clothes.

-Eating lots and lots of food!  You don't turn any away.

-You go to sleep between 6:30pm-7:30pm each night and sleep until about 7:30am.  If you wake up early, you play with your toys and wait for mom and/or dad to come get you.  Then you go open the doggies kennel to let them out. 

-Soo close to walking.   Almost there.

-You have 4 cups of whole milk a day, 3 solid meals and an afternoon snack.  And yes, still only water; no juice.

-Still taking 2 naps-about an hour in the morning between 9:30am-10:30am and an hour and 1/2 to 2 hours in the afternoon-about 1:30pm-3:30pm.  It all depends on how active you've been during the day. 

-And did I mention you got 4 teeth at the same time?!?  You handled it pretty well.  Some drooling and crying, but not much.

-Your gigi and pops are her for another week.  Gigi has been here about 3 1/2 weeks.  You are loving time with them AND all the attention.
