Happy 15 Month Birthday

I definitely missed Kate's 14 month "birthday", but I still want to do monthly updates on a somewhat consistent basis. After reading back on her 13 month post, I can't believe how many new things she is doing in just the past 2 months.  So, here is Kate's 15 month update.


Words:
Kate is finally starting to try to talk.  If you ask her to, she'll try to repeat just about anything (if she is in the mood).  Along with her standard "Mama" she is now saying the following words:
Dada
Go - except she doesn't just say it once. It's more like "go, go, go, go, go, go", especially when she's watching football.
Truck
Nana
Papa
Ball
Apple
Night-Night
Wow
Dog & Woof- I think she thinks these are the same thing.  If you ask her what a dog says, she'll say woof (which comes out like oof).  If she sees a dog, she'll say woof.  Woof is her new favorite word.  Apparently at her MDO program, she was following the kids around and panting at them and saying "woof".  Her teachers asked us if we had dogs. :)

She doesn't use these words all the time, but is pretty good at saying them if you ask her to repeat them.


Mobility:
Kate is now RUNNING when she can, instead of walking.  This girl is on the GO.
She loves steps, or curbs, and will constantly go up and down.  Apparently we have done a good job of catching her when she stumbles, because she has no fear when coming down  steps.  She tries to step down like she is a big girl.


Foods:
I'm not sure if Kate has a "favorite" food right now.  She has always been a good eater, and I guess that is still the case.  She hasn't been a picky eater in the past, but she has definitely gotten a lot pickier.

However she does "prefer" some things over others.  If she's eating one thing and see something else that she wants, she'll put her hand in her mouth and pull out whatever it is she's eating so she can get the other thing.


Growing:
Kate probably fits in 18 month clothes best, but I pretty much buy all 24 month or 2T to get some extra "wear" out of them.
She wears a size 5 diaper.
And a size 5 or 6 shoe!
She has 12 teeth that are all the way in (4 top, 4 bottom, plus 4 molars) and her canine teeth have just started popping through.


Other Development:
I'm sure her Nana is working with her too, but I've been trying to get her to learn body parts.  So far she can point to her nose, eyes, mouth, ears, teeth, hair, fingers, toes and belly button.  She is especially interested in her belly button, and if you ask where it is she immediately pulls up her shirt and then proceeds to try to pull up YOUR shirt to find your belly button.


Happy 15 month birthday, Kate!
