Little Viking | 15 Month Update

You are finally fifteen months old! It is so funny to say because you seem so grown up but your still so little. Especially when we go for walks and you hold our hands, it kills my heart just how far you have come in the last few months.

Your vocabulary is expanding and you have learnt "bug" and "doggie", your baby babble is just off the charts and sometimes it sounds like you ask a question {most of the time I look at you confused}. You say things like "what this?" or "whats that" in babble but your usually pointing at something so I know what you mean, you have yet to learn please or thank you, still working on it so you are kind of demanding when you do want something. You listen to me when I tell you to sit by me, or sit down and you have even learnt to lie down when I tell you do which is nice, although sometimes when your silly you kind of throw your body in a crazy wild way. You agree with us most of the time and say "yeah" with such enthusiasm and you still say "bye" and "hi" to random people. You love sharing with others, especially your food, sometimes you share a bit too much of your food with dad which ends up all in his mouth and its quite funny to watch. You always have to make sure Dakota has some of your snack and you like feeding her dog food to her. 

You have so so much teeth now! Almost a full mouth and your molars came through on one side which made you into a mighty little monster, they are giving you break now but your other molars are fast approaching. You are eating a fair bit more now since you are growing up faster, you randomly started loving fruits like pears, strawberries and even banana {you never ever ever eat banana} I love watching you chew your food, its so fascinating that you are a master at eating so soon. 

The minute you hear a beat or any time of music you dance like crazy, I think its because when you where teeny we let you have nakey hour and you wriggled your whole body side by side, I think you just love dancing kid which is rather odd because your parents are not dancers! You simply adore browsing the toy isle in the shops and you grab anything that catches your fancy even if it is to big for you to carry. When you make accidents like spilling the dog water all over you or knocking the picture frame on the tv unit over you run away so shocked and guilty and then come running to us crying out of fear of what happened. We shouldn't laugh but its quite funny the expression on your face.

Your very very emotional some days, like heck your not even a teenager and we can't even handle your emotions. You find it hilarious when I say "I love you" and you bury your face into my side like a giddy little kid. You willingly give kisses and it is the absolute cutest thing you have ever done. Naughty should be your middle name because kid you got that trait down-pat, the minute we tell you no you think it is a game and keep doing whatever is bad, like pushing mummy's cookbooks to the back of the cupboard. But despite all that you love helping us out with picking up leaves, passing us washing as we hang it up or putting things away. You have this fascination with putting things into your backpack or into a box.

The other day we gave you a small cup to drink water from {bad idea} you got some of it in your mouth but would rather put your hands in the water than dry to drink it. You love stomping and running down hills, the other day I swear you jumped over a toy but it happened in the corner of my eye. You also fell asleep in the car the other day like three times and I was cheering because you never do that anymore. Your independent as heck and really show us who's boss and you seem to grow taller every time you take a nap! 

we love you so much kiddo!
