15/16 Month Update

Pin It

Well, our sweet girl is about 16 months old (in 2 days to be exact) and we just finally made it in to her pediatrician for her 15 month Well Baby exam. I know, I know. 

She is 32" long, putting her in the 83% for height. She weighs 29 lbs., putting her in the 99% for weight and her chrome dome is 18.5" in diameter, which actually has dropped her down to the 79% for skull size (praise the Lord, she has been off the charts in this category her entire life until now). 

She is a corn-fed little monster, that is for sure. 
And when I say corn-fed, I mean corn-fed. 

Sofia is blossoming. I was excited to say "YES" to every single one of the doctors "can she?" questions. 

She can: 
  • Wave hello/good-bye
  • Use a fork/spoon
  • Communicate clearly with words and/or sign language
  • Walk backwards (odd question, right?)
  • Obey commands
  • Say "Momma" and "Dadda" discriminately
  • React appropriately
  • .... and a bunch more questions my pregnant brain can't remember LOL
Sofia now says about 20 words, some of which are names (and she says those discriminately). She is also pulling random signs out that I tried to teach her at 6 months old and she seemed to never catch on to, but obviously her brain saved them away somewhere because 10 months later they are making their debut. 

Yesterday, she sat on something metal (which was super hot from the sun), jumped up and said "hot!". Her brain is constantly amazing me with all these new little developments. I am so in awe of this beautiful little person. 
Sofia's favorite things:
  • Swimming/Playing in the water
  • Drawing
  • Walking/Running
  • Pushing/Pulling
  • Eating (it's true) 
  • Sorting like-items
  • Dancing to music
 She sleeps from 7:30PM to 7:30AM and takes a 2 hour nap from 12:30/1 to 2:30/3PM. 
She eats breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack (smoothie with vitamins) and dinner and she really hasn't been picky at all.  She hasn't thrown tantrums in at least a month and has been very obedient and calm lately -- although she does have her moments as does anyone. She has 8 teeth and is currently cutting 4 molars at once, which seem to be stationary right now, giving her a little break in the pain.

And on top of all the growth and development, boy have we had a fun summer!

We found out we were adding to our gang of misfits!
 We woke up slowly to our favorite TV show.
 We played in the wood fire truck at Underwood Family Farms!
We wouldn't leave our belly button alone and it became so irritated that Mommy had to hide it from some very curious fingers! 
 We enjoyed our first popsicle on a hot summer day!
 We laid on the couch and recovered from a summer cold.
We snuggled with Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba! 
We snuggled with sweet baby boy Sebek's nursery fabric. 
We loved on baby boy Sebek's crib quilt! 
 We made our first fort with Daddy!
 And woke up slowly underneath it!
We hung out with friends, Sofia and 'lil Nathan. 
 And more friends, Sofia and Wyatt.
 We enjoyed our very own camping chair. 
 We gobbled up soy & dairy free cupcakes.
 We sat in our chair with Mini and watched Yo Gabba Gabba.
We played in our matching wagons with Wyatt. 
We went to a fun Calavo growers BBQ up in Ojai. 
And spent time with Uncle Nate and a very strange pink monkey balloon hat.
 We played at a park in Thousand Oaks.
And down at Surfer's Point. 
 We slurped up yummy vitamin filled fruit smoothies.
 And fed the ducks in Thousand Oaks.
 We randomly fell asleep on Mommy's lap.
For the first time in at least 10 months. 
 We discovered ribbon.
And made it fashionable to wear. 
We discovered Hot Wheels and started a collection
And enjoyed dinner at our very own table with a friend. 
 We fell asleep in the truck.
And enjoyed delicious dairy & soy free pizza with Goia dairy/soy free cheese! 
 And gobbled down some grapes.
We slept on the way out to Bakersfield to visit the Hester's. 
 We visited a fun park in Bakersfield with a stream and lots of pollywogs.
 We loved on our new upcoming addition.
 We played in the stream.
We got a fun new ID bracelet listing our allergies. 
 We found out we are having a little brother! 
We helped Mommy pick out some clothes for our new little brother, Knox.  
 We borrowed Daddy's glasses.
 We tested out Uncle Clark's dirt bike.
We played with Daddy at Rainbow Bridge Park. 
 Daddy gave us a few pointers on shootin' hoops.
And on how to go down twisty slides. 
We tested out some new toys. 
 And we learned how to drive like Fred Flinstone.

Well, it's been one heck of a summer so far and it's not even over yet! It sure has been hot lately though so I have a feeling there is lots of water play in the future for us!
Happy summer!
