15 months

On Saturday, July 3rd, Jillian turned 15 months! This is such a great age. She is learning so many things.
What is she up to?
  • She is still wearing all 12 month clothes.
  • She is still wearing size 3 diapers.
  • She wears size 3 shoes, but we think she's about to need size 4.
  • She has 10 teeth, 4 front top teeth and one molar on the top, and 4 front bottom teeth and one molar on the bottom.
  • She is eating very well for the most part. She has days that she will eat everything in sight and days that she just picks.
  • We got her on the bathroom scale and she's weighing about 20.5 lbs. Who knows how accurate that is, though!
  • She loves to play and read books. Daddy got her first real (not the stuffed one she's had since she was born) babydoll for her and she loves it! She pushes it in her stroller and kisses it and loves on it.

  • She loves ice and ice water. She will drink it non-stop if we let her (just like Mommy.)
  • She saying so many more things now that I don't even know where to begin. I think my favorite is "Blugh" with her tongue sticking out for blue or blueberries (her favorite food.) She will repeat a lot of the things we say and she sometimes surprises us with saying things like "thank you" when we haven't prompted it.
  • She learning her body parts and will point to ears, eyes, nose and mouth on her doll or someone else, but she won't do it on herself yet.
  • She loves to dance or "boogie, boogie" with me during the day. She thinks is so fun to spin around. Of course she does it so much that she gets dizzy and falls down, but it's still fun!

  • She's very good about telling us when she is ready to go to bed. She grabs one of her blankies and walks to the stairs and stands at the gate until we get there to pick her up and take her to bed.
  • She loves swimming and water. It doesn't matter if it's her tub, a big swimming pool or her little splash pool. We took her in a big swimming pool this past weekend and she wanted to take off swimming on her own like the big kids. I don't know why we were surprised, she's always been a little dare-devil.
  • She is still 100% a daddy's girl. She loves me, but if daddy is around wants to be with him and I could go away and she wouldn't care or notice. I was concerned that we would have problems this summer, with me staying home with her, but we've had a great time!
  • We have gotten rid of the noise machine that she slept with since she was born. I was planning on gradually getting rid of it, but the cd started acting up a couple weeks ago and stopped working all of a sudden. She's been without it ever since with no problem. In fact, we think she might actually sleep better!

It's amazing how fast she is growing and learning new things! I don't know where my little baby went, but I sure do miss her! No baby anymore, we have a BIG GIRL now!


  1. She is such a little cutie! B&B had fun playing with her on Tuesday and we are looking forward to more play dates this summer!

  2. we had fun playing this week...can't wait to do it again soon! She's so stinkin' cute with her pony tail and "real" baby doll :)

  3. Now that she's a "Big Girl", it's time for a little sister or brother! Seriously, if you and Frank can make such cute babies, why not have another cute baby?! Haha. Love ya!
