15 months old!

Little buddy is getting so big!  We think he is going through another growth spurt now as well - I guess that doesn't stop for a lot more years?!

He's been dropping the afternoon nap, so Dad's been trying to start his morning nap later - after 10AM if possible.  And sometimes it's a lot later if the boys went someplace fun, like the zoo or aquarium, with Ethan's buddy Silas.  And sometimes he still sleeps in the afternoon though, it comes and goes.

We are finally fully on  cow's milk (we use Horizon Whole Milk with DHA).  Thanks to my donor mommies for stretching out their pumping sessions to give us mommy milk.

Bedtime continues to be easy (thank goodness!) - diaper and jammies while singing "Are You Sleepy" and "My Ethan Lies Over the Ocean, bottle, a book "Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night" (he pushes all other books away), kisses and lay him in the crib.  Mealtime continues to be difficult (kid hates to eat anything other than a crunchy carb).

Ethan is still scooting instead of crawling, and his legs and arms are not very strong as a result.  Thus, no walking.  Not very much standing.  He is starting to go up on his knees a lot more to peek into the toybox, and LOVES climbing over stuff (like pillows on the ground).  His ped recommended an early intervention evaluation - just in case - so we are working on getting that scheduled.
(His nose-crinkle-smile when you say "CHEEEEEESE" or he is trying to make you laugh)

Music, especially Raffi - we listen to Pandora a lot

Anything that he can 'drive' - trucks, cars, tractors

Putting things into things.

We try not to have the TV on too much BUT those teething days are tough.  Thomas the Train and Curious George to the rescue (thank goodness for PBS Kids and Sprout).

Foods - Cheerios, saltine crackers, and cheesy poofs; Peanut butter (on crackers or toast); breakfast bars and Clif bars; sweet potato, pumpkin, or squash type foods.

Monkey during the day if he's feeling yucky or tired.  Paci, blankie, and teddy at sleepy times.

Puppies!  He gets so, so excited when he sees puppies duirng walks.

Mark and Silas - he is a little Silas groupie, and Daddy is grateful for the adult company :)

Pooping - poor kid has trouble once in awhile

Eating in general - except for the list above

Sippy cups - although that is getting better with water :)
