15 Months

Weight: 22 pounds

Length: 29.5 inches

Favorite activity: Playing with the light switch, throwing the ball for the dogs down the hallway, playing with her sunglasses, drawing at her play table.

Favorite food: applesauce, grated cheese, risotto

Favorite spot: She loves the foot stool in her room, now that she can climb on it and look out the window.

Cutest moment: Open mouth kisses. I die. 

Important milestones: First steps! She was just starting to take her first steps around Easter, now she has been known to take 3-4 steps on a regular basis!

Teeth: 5

Words: 5 - dada, mama, woof, yes, dis (this), kack (quack)

Signs: 3 (more, all done, dog)

How Mom's Feeling: Good, but tired. I feel like I've been going nonstop this entire month. I've either been packing, unpacking, painting, sewing...It's a lot! But our house is quite livable now, so that makes me happy.

As I was looking at the pictures of the past few weeks, it really struck me how much Lorelei has grown! She really isn't a baby anymore. Well, she is. But she's really starting to become her own little person too. She's stubborn and independent and really hates to be impeded in ANY way, be it closing a door, trying to crawl onto the couch, or holding her down to change her diaper. She just flips out and starts wailing! She also just LOVES her books and will sit on the footstool in her room looking through them. 

Oh, and speaking of STUBBORN, you may notice that our monthly photo looks a bit different. Lorelei WOULD NOT sit on a backdrop. She kept trying to pull it down, and would just cry whenever I put her on it. So, I just put the cloth on the floor and took advantage of the nice, freshly painted walls in our new house!

Another sign Lorelei is growing up: weaning. Over the last few weeks, we've been nursing less and less. This week, she has only nursed once, and mostly because she was upset and needed comfort. In some ways, it is a relief. Bedtime goes by much more quickly. On the other hand, it was a guaranteed cuddle session, which I loved. But each nursing session started getting shorter and shorter, and she just would get so distracted and seemed so uninterested. So...I'm feeling rather sad about it.
