Owen is 15 Months!

Owen's 1st oreo face!

Only 3 months past his first birthday and Owen has already changed so dramatically!

-Owen is walking like a pro and starting to run now.  Watch out world!

-He's becoming much more temperamental and really doesn't like it when he doesn't get what he wants!

-His temperament could have a little something to do with the fact that he's getting in ALL the rest of his teeth right now with the exception of his 2nd set of molars.

-He loves, loves, loves to be outside.  He hates, hates, hates to have to come back in.

-Greek yogurt and peaches are two of his favorite foods.  He also has a major sweet tooth!

-Weighs 22lbs. which puts him in the 24th %tile.

-He is now 31.5 inches tall and in the 64th%tile for height.

-His head is still topping the charts at 19.5 inches (96th%).

-He follows certain simple commands like sit down, stand up, bring me a book, let's run, spin, stop, go, wave, clap, hide etc.

-He poops and/or pees on the floor every.single.time he gets away from me while not wearing a diaper.  It's like a fun game for him.  Maybe we'll start potty training a little earlier this time....

-Owen naps for 2-3 hours each day but sometimes it's over one nap and sometimes it's two.  I prefer one nap a day, but when Owen is tired, he lets you know.  All I have to do is ask if he's ready for night-night and off to his room he goes!

-Sharing toys is probably one of our most difficult battles at home since both boys like the same things and always want what the other is playing with.  Austin use to be able to just walk up to Owen and grab whatever he was playing with out of his hand (and then promptly be put in time out), but recently Owen has started to fight back!  He'll hold on tight and scream at Austin and won't give up so easily.

-One of the funniest things from this past month is that Owen has started to try to jump.  His feet rarely leave the ground, but it is pretty stinkin' cute to watch him bobbing up and down!

-Owen tries so hard to sing the ABC song but most of the time it just sounds like a bunch of A's and E's.  He's great at doing all the motions to Itsy Bitsy Spider and Wheels on the Bus, though!

-Owen is definitely a baby who thinks he's a big kid.  We recently met up with our playgroup at the park and I watched in amazement as several other moms with babies near Owen's age were just sitting calmly on blankets and playing with a few toys and enjoying a snack.  No, no, no, not Owen!  He was climbing the jungle gym, going up the slide, running back and forth and trying to do what all the older children were doing.  He is one active little boy!
