Dear Shepherd (15 Months)

Actually, he was 15 months on June 9th. I'm behind on a lot of things this month (sorry again mom! Your present is in the mail!)

Dear Shepherd,

Well I think its safe to say that you are not holding back on the personality. We have definitely gotten to know you a little bit better over the past few months. You have proven to be quite opinionated, smart, mischievous, and curious.

  • You weigh 24lbs 4oz (50%) and are 31.8 inches tall (75%)
  • You are wearing size 4 diapers, 18 month clothes, and size 4 shoes (when you wear them)
  • You walk everywhere like Jack Sparrow, swinging your hips and your hands
  • You finally decided it might be fun to clap and you will clap when something makes you happy
  • You also finally decided books are fun! You really like to turn the pages, point at things and also throwing books out of your bed still brings you great delight. You will even sit still long enough for us to read a few pages to you!
  • You still laugh at your sister sometimes, but most of the time right now she frustrates you by taking away the toys you want to play with (I've warned her that the day is coming when you will be able to fight back)
  • Even though you are comprehending a lot right now, you do not say very many words. You say dada a lot, mama when you are very very upset, every once in a while say "all done", you say "that" when you point at something you want, and you do a lot of yelling that is not comprehendable
  • You have developed quite a little temper when you want something and don't get it 
  • You tolerate baths as long as you can stand up, but really like to take showers with your daddy
  • Going outside is still your favorite thing to do above everything else
  • Your daddy is your favorite person ever, unless its the middle of the night and you have an upset tummy THEN you'll want mommy
  • You still don't like to eat vegetables unless they are in a pouch or pureed. You really don't like to eat a lot of things. You like ground beef, chicken nuggets, french fries, ritz crackers, applesauce, peaches, pears, oatmeal, yogurt, milk, water, and you THINK you would like anything anyone else has but you change your mind when it is put in your mouth
  • You get into anything and everything. The bathroom is your favorite place to sneak off to, although the tupperware cabinet, daddy's books and pens, and Fischer's room also happen quite frequently. 
We love you so much and are thoroughly enjoying learning to parent a boy!
