Landon: 15 months

I am LONG overdue for a Landon update! He hit the 15 month mark last week and is busy busy. We love this kid like crazy! Here's a recap of the last 3 months:

Landon's (kind of) talking! He says: mama, dada, dog, ball, up, down, more, no, ow, rock rock, door, and makes up a lot of words that we have no idea what they mean. It probably doesn't help that Avery tries to tell me what he wants instead of letting him do it and talks to him in her own special little language no matter how many times I ask her to speak English to him so he can learn to join our conversations.

He is running everywhere. Fast. And he is climbing. On everything.

Our big little dude wears 18 month clothes, just moved up to a size 4 diaper, and wears a size 6 shoe. He weighs 25.5 lbs (60%), is 32.5 inches tall (85%), and has a serious head circumference of 19.75 inches (off the charts).

Landon gave up nursing at 13 months, so he drinks whole milk from a sippy cup before nap and bedtime. Yes, that nap is singular. He gave up his morning nap a couple of months ago. Sad day! Although now he takes longer afternoon naps, so not all is lost. Landon goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes up around 7. We still rock him to sleep and will probably start trying to let him put himself to sleep soon. I just really love that time with him in the evening and it doesn't take that long for him to be out. We'll see. :)

He has been teething like CRAZY lately. He has 10 teeth now and might still be working on some more. Sleeping through the night is hit or miss as a result. Boo to that. Come on, teeth!

Landon is super silly and loves to make people laugh. His newest feat is somersaults, and he cracks up when he and Avery chase each other in circles around the house. Those giggles are the best sounds in the whole world! He thinks it's hilarious to feed us his food, and he pretty much smiles all the time (unless he's teething; see paragraph above).

He started Mother's Day Out this year! He's in a class with 5 other kids who have birthdays within 2 months of him, and he already loves it. His first day was pretty rough (on me, not him!), and he only started to cry as I left but stopped immediately. He already loves his teachers, Ms Jennifer and Ms Jeanne. They're so sweet!

We love this kid! Duh.

He is SO adorable! It's amazing how both Landon and Avery look like both you and Matt, but in different ways!
