My little baby is now 15 months old!

My sweet boy is 15 months old! Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday that he was still in my belly! 

Yesterday, he had his 15 month checkup! We got to see his best buddy, Dr.Lye, who is apparently no longer his best buddy. He is now at the age where anything he doesn't initiate is a fight- so the stethoscope, ear and mouth checks, etc. were all tantrum inducers! 

Luckily, I have a bit of experience in restraining unruly children at the doc and have no problem doing the same to my little guy.

We escaped an hour and a half later with two shots, and a sticker (Thanks, Julia!).

His official stats were:

Height: 31" (50%)
Weight: 21+15.5 (15%)
Head: 49cm (95%)

My tiny baby! He is SO skinny (but doesn't look it with his big belly always hanging out!), and is following how I grew- BIG baby, tiny toddler. He just recently doubled his birth weight, which usually happens around 6 months. The good news is that I haven't had to buy him bigger clothes in quite a while! He still fits into the outfits he wore last summer. 

His favorite "new" words at 15 months are truck, babies and flowers. This kid never stops moving, talking or eating. He keeps me on my toes all day long and I am so, so lucky to stay at home with him. I have worked with babies/kids for a long time, but never realized how much they pick up just by observing. It is pretty amazing!
