Fifteen Months!

Henry Ryan... you are fifteen months!  

You have changed so much these last two months and are officially a full blown toddler.  You run, you climb, you drink out of a straw and you definitely know how to test your limits.

You had your first two ear infections this month after you battled a cold.  You also managed to get pink eye so it was a rough couple of days.  Other than that it's been a good month!


You weigh 22 1/2 pounds and are wearing 18 month clothes and size 4 diapers.  We purchased your first big boy shoes this month in a size 4 1/2 and you love them!

You recently transitioned to a new room at daycare and so far so good.  I think I had a harder time with the transition than you did.  In your new room you only take one nap in the afternoon which was a little hard at first but you are getting used to it.  Evenings are a little rough as you're pretty cranky with less sleep during the day but I think we're finally adjusting.  I wish I could say you are sleeping longer at night but that's not really the case.  You go down around 7:30 at night and usually wake up around 6 am.

You are still a good eater but have become pickier lately.  We have a hard time with meats unless we disguise them in the rest of your food.  You continue to love cheese, bananas, blueberries, waffles, and mac n cheese.  A new favorite of yours is cookies!  You still take milk during the day but would prefer apple juice if you had your choice.

You have always been a curious boy and love to inspect everything.  You also love to be outside and hate when we have to go back inside.

You still are not saying any real words but I keep thinking we are so close.  You love to babble and you definitely know what things are but just can't say them yet.

While it has been a good month, there have also been some hard times.  You really love to test your limits even once we've told you no.  You've also gotten in trouble a few times at daycare for hitting.  We're working through this but it's hard for you and mom and dad.

It's hard for us to believe that we have a toddler in our house but we truly love this time.  We love seeing your personality shine and look forward to what is to come.  I know I've said it before but I truly think this is the best time yet.

Love you H man!
