Charlie at 15 Months

Our Charlie turned 15 months this week! Where does the time go? Here are a few things about our guy.

Sweet little Charlie, at 15 months...

You're still a peanut. We'll get your official stats next week at your checkup, but you're about 19 1/2 lbs (5th-ish percentile, I think). And yet, your personality is much bigger than your size!


You have been in a Mama phase, scared of strangers, and upset if I walk more than 5 feet from you. You're just coming out of that phase and becoming friendly once again!

You have six teeth- four on top and 2 on bottom. I think you're working on more!DSC07966

If your teeth aren't bothering you, you're a pretty good sleeper! Recently you've gone back to two naps, and often those each last 2 hours! In addition you go to bed a little after 6 pm and usually wake up at 7 or 7:30 the next morning. (Well, you usually get up once around 4am to eat.) That's over 13 hours of sleep a night!

You play so well. Next to other kids, by yourself, with your brother... You love to explore, take things apart, put in and take out, and drop things. Often you'll play for a good 30-45 minutes by yourself!


You aren't walking yet- although I've seen you take as many as 6 steps at a time! You just prefer to crawl or cruise the furniture almost exclusively. We know that you'll walk someday... when you're ready. :)


You are a sweetie. You love to give (open mouth) kisses, hugs, and high fives.

Your vocabulary is pretty typical for your age, I think. You say... peas (please), cheese (as soon as you see the camera or for the food), Mama, five (for high five), boom, muh (more), bye bye, Gigi, Papa, and Ack! (which I'm pretty sure is Jack). You also speak in fluent sentences... in Charliese. You're definitely saying something, I just don't know what!

You're a great eater! You haven't developed much pickiness yet, and you eat a ton! A banana and a half in a sitting is nothing for you! You love anything in a sippy cup and drink mostly milk, and occasionally water. You also still nurse about 3 times a day.


You love, in no particular order... fruit, ride-on toys, yogurt and applesauce, your pacifier (oh what fun that will be to break you of :), climbing  on anything and everything, snacking constantly, going up and down stairs, pulling everything out of cabinets, dumping buckets of toys, and Gerber yogurt melts. You really like the yogurt melts.

We love you sweet boy, and we're so proud of you!
