Actually, Bridget is 16 months (and 3 days) now, but her 15 month appt was yesterday. Carter had been running a fever for about 24 hours the day prior, so I called and added an appt for him at the same time. Big mistake. The appt was at 10, and 2.5 hours, 2 VERY tired and hungry kids, and one slightly frazzled mother later, we finally walked out. Carter was ok, by the way...no ear infection and no spots in his throat. Just a virus I guess.
Anyway, Bridget tipped the scales at a whopping 24 pounds 4oz, and 31.75 inches long. No idea what percentile she's in. If the Dr told me, I probably couldn't hear her over the sound of a screaming baby.
So...at 16 months, what does Bridget do?
-LOVES her baby. She rocks it, sings to it, bounces it (hilarious to watch, by the way), changes it's diaper, and wraps it in the blanket.
-asks to watch a "moonie" (aka: movie) several times a day. Those Praise Baby dvd's are getting a work out! (this is what she's doing in the pic above)
-won't eat a single vegetable. No matter how hard you try to hide some in her food, she'll find it and spit it out. Loves her some grapes, peaches, mandarin oranges and strawberries though.
-says pretty everything. Her favorite words are more, up, baby, and puppy/doggie
-speaking of dogs, she's totally obsessed with them. And not just in theory. She has no fear of dogs, big or small. Any time we step foot outdoors (which sadly isn't very often) she heads right over to the neighbors to try and peak under their privacy fence for just the smallest glimpse of their dog.
-Still doesn't regularly sleep through the night. Yes, I was the mom that pre-child was all about baby wise and said my child was going to sleep through the night at 8 weeks. However, aprox 64 weeks later, she still wakes up more often than not.
