You continue to use signing as a way to communicate. I think it's so cute! You sign "eat" and "all done" all by yourself to tell us your hungry or done with something. You also sign "please" when you are asked. You can be a little demanding at times and since your vocabulary isn't very big you usually resort to whining or grunting and pointing when you want something. So when this happens we tell you to say "please" so that you will stop whining and this gives you a way to ask for what you want. You have picked up quickly on signs as these are the only ones we have taught you and you use them all. I'm hoping to be better about teaching you new ones. Here is your signing in action:


"All Done"

"Please" (You point to your chest with your finger)

War Eagle

You are finally feeling better. You had a pretty rough week- you had a fever for about three days and you felt pretty miserable. You didn't go to MDO at all this week. I was able to stay home with you on Wednesday and Grammy kept you on Thursday and Friday. You are pretty much back to your old self- laughing and playing again.

You think it's funny when we say, "WAR EAGLE!" and you are attempting to say it. It won't be long!

15 Months

On September 5 you were 15 months old and today was your 15 month well visit (even though you are sick). Last week you started Mother's Day Out at Lakeside Baptist Church and now you have a cold.

So here are your new stats:
Weight: 24 lbs 2 oz
Height: 31.5 inches
(50th percentile for both)

Dr. Byars was very glad to hear that you are doing lots of talking. You have about 15 words now. At your 12 month appointment you weren't clapping, waving bye, pointing or talking. You are now doing all of those things! God answered our prayers and you are right where you are supposed to be. We are so grateful!

What a sweet boy!

Pre-Game Show

Football season has officially begun and we are ready! Daddy was encouraging you to play with your football this morning and you loved every minute of it. You can throw like a pro! Here you are as our little "future tiger":

You are continuing to do new things and you surprise us every day! You can now independently eat with your fork...the spoon is still a little hard for you. You say "gugu" for alligator and "kuku" for cookie or cracker. You are such a little imitator too! If we do something with our hands you immediately copy us...like blowing a kiss or doing motions to a song. You can point to your eyes and belly for sure. Sometimes you get your nose and your mouth right too. You love to brush my hair with your baby brush. You think that is so fun! You still LOVE books! You are always going and picking out a book and you will bring it to Daddy or me and then situate yourself in our lap. It is so cute. This is such a fun age. I'm really loving it! You are 15 months today!
