fifteen months

we have had a check up with the pediatrician, 2 vaccinations and a parents as teachers screening.  i think it is safe to say brody is officially fifteen months old.  been that way for a whole week.  
And now for the important part…
weight: 20 lbs, 5th percentile.  Finally on the growth chart for the first time since 4 months old!
height: 31 ¾ inches long, 70% percentile
teeth: 4 on top, 3 on bottom (still wondering where that last one is) and working on breaking through two molars on the top. 
ear infection count: 3 (or is it 4?)  we are going to see an ear, nose and throat specialist next week to discuss tubes since these infections have been so resistant to the antibiotics.
clothes: 12 month pants and shirts, 18 month pajamas, size 4 shoes
[at the pediatrician's office]
he signs 'please', 'thank you' and 'more'.  waves bye-bye and hello.  says momma, dada, woof, roar (like a lion), vroom (like a truck), uh-oh and yes.  he is imitating everything.  if he wants something he can't say, he points and grunts to get your attention.  he has become very stable while walking and even runs every now and then.  he can walk backward and spins in circles until he is dizzy.  and he still makes that funny humming sound when he is tired to soothe himself to sleep.  
he loves to eat and will eat almost everything we give him.  favorites are bananas, strawberries and string cheese.  he wavers on whether or not he likes meats and most veggies.  he is drinking milk like a champ, using his straw cup, and begs to drink out of a plastic water bottle if he sees anyone with them.  feeds himself with a fork and spoon, and shakes his head no if you try to feed anything to him.   
he is definitely all boy.  climbing.  jumping. getting into everything.  wearing his momma out.  but i sure do love that little boy.

A few things I have learned after looking back at this week...

1) Our DSLR takes much better photos than my iPhone (uhh, yeah...)
2) i really liked how Ashley presented her week in photos.  Plan on copying you ashley
3) i really need to learn how to use my photo editing program
4) posting daily holds me more accountable for taking pictures
5) we had entirely too many days up past bedtime this last week

Day #7

Brody looks like Linus!
So, we made it one week in our photo a day project.  I am thinking instead of not having much to say and just posting a picture I am going to do a week at a time with all 7 pics in it.  That way, I'm not overwhelming ya'll with pictures and jibber-jabber.

Godzilla sighting...

Oh wait, that's just Brody trying to stand on his monster truck.

Failure. Well sorta.

tonight I sat in traffic for 1 hr and 45 min on my way home from work.  the highway was shut down due to a bad accident. by the time I got home, brody was CRANKY 40 minutes past bedtime.  we had just enough time for a few snuggles before heading to bed.  therefore... today's 365 picture = dark room + sleeping baby+ no flash.  He sure look sweet sound asleep though!

Finally, a smile!

Over the last month or so, Brody has been so active we hadn't been able to get a picture of him actually looking at the camera.  Recently though, as soon as I pull out the camera he hams it up for me.  I'm loving it! 
This week, Brody learned how to use a zipper.  He is so proud of himself, but now he can get out of his jammies.  We are in trouble! His new word this week is "uh-oh".  I'm guessing he learned that one at school.  He throws his toy, cup, book, etc down and then says uh-oh and cracks up.  It's not really an accident when you throw them on the floor dude!

Monster Jammies

I'm going to try to post daily more often this year ... maybe a whole post, maybe just a 365 pic.  Here's to a New Year's Resolution.  
Brody is pretty proud of his new pj's from his cousin Jude.  Pretty cool if I do say so myself! 

Family Christmas 2012

We celebrated our family Christmas on December 26th, 2011.  Cody had to work Christmas weekend, so we waited just one more day to celebrate.  We had a lovely lunch and opened tons of presents.  Brody must have been really good this year!

we didn't know which camera to look at!

Happy New Year!

Cheers to the New Year!

Thanks to Susan, I am thinking about tackling Project 365 this year.  I thought about it last year, but just didn't have more than a few days in me with going back to work from maternity leave.  Brody has changed so much in the last year, and I figure having a photo each day will be a cool way to look back at our year together.  I'm sure most of my photos will be iphone photos, so don't expect much from my photography quality ok?!

January 1, 2012
technically taken december 31st {the only pic I took today was of me after my run... } I decided to try this project last minute [like 11:45 pm last minute], so it was the best I could do.
