Actually he was 15 months last week, but we had just gotten back from Minneapolis, it snowed and it was Thanksgiving, so I’m a little late. Jacob had his doctors appointment yesterday so we got his stats. He weighs 20lbs 12oz and is 31 inches tall. His weight is still in the 5-10th %tile but his length moved from the 25th %tile to the 50th %tile. Finally getting a little taller. Jacob also just happen to have a fever that day so he avoided 3 vaccinations. And when we got home he vomited 3 times. Oh the joys of motherhood! He is feeling much better today, but I have to admit I loved to snuggles yesterday, well until I got puked on that is. Despite the fever and a little congestion Jacob checked out great.
He is a little bit behind (though within normal) verbally. He still doesn’t really say anything. He does have some words but doesn’t say them on his own, only repeating after us. And he still doesn’t say “mama”, I am trying not to take it personally! He says dada, cracker, teddy, up, down, cup, car, banana. He does sign more, eat and please. He also doesn’t point yet. So to let us know he wants something, he whines.
He is on the go all day long. Running around the house, climbing on anything he can. He climbs up and sits on the table top toys. he can climb up on a chair if there is a toy in front of it to boost him up. This morning he was sitting on the suitcase playing with a toy.
He is still napping 2x a day and lately his naps have been about 2hr each (maybe because he hasn’t been feeling well). He is sleeping great at night. His bed time is about 7:30-8:00pm and he wakes on average 7:30am.
His favorite foods are bananas, yogurt, grapes, cereal bars, cereal bars, meatballs. He does not like cheese or meat (other than meatballs, though he might take a few bits of ground beef) or vegetables except brown sugar glazed carrots. He eats with his fingers or being fed by a spoon. I am just starting to try a fork with him.
His favorite toys are my old cell phone, well any cell phone or cell phone toy, remote controls, balls, empty laundry baskets, anything he can climb on, containers to put things in and take out, music toys, and Bible Action Songs DVD, well TV in general.
Jacob is wearing mostly 12month sized clothes, although can still wear most of his 9mo pants with a disposable diaper. He is wearing 18mo jammies. He is wearing a size 4 shoe but is going to need a size 5 soon. And he is wearing a size 4 diaper.
He is quite the character and has quite the personality. He loves to laugh. He is easy going most of the time. He loves to test our limits and will throw a small tantrum when he doesn’t get what he wants. He really is such a good little boy. We love him to pieces and wouldn’t trade him for the world!
