15 months

Max turned 15 months at the end of October. He had his 15-month well check and weighed 23 lbs (47%) and was 32 in tall (80%). He is as healthy as can be and is almost done with his vaccinations (hooray)! He is learning to climb onto the couch by himself, smack his lips, brush his teeth, and feed himself with a spoon. He has learned to say walk (wah?), tree, cheese, keys, and jesus (which all sound the same), open and apple (also sound the same), and he loves to say AMEN whenever we say prayers... or if he feels a prayer should be over (ha!). He also can say and sign help (hup?), which is quickly becoming one of his favorite things to ask, even when he is perfectly capable of doing something on his own. My favorite things he says are woohoo! and yeeeeah! His favorite thing to say is still "all done," which he says ALL the time, not just when he is all done, but when he wants YOU to stop, or if he does NOT want something, or just whenever he is frustrated. It's probably better than saying "no" all the time, and certainly much funnier.

When you say "show me your muscles," he'll "flex" by sticking his arms out and tensing up his body and face, and it is THE funniest thing. He went through a two-week phase where he decided to drop his morning nap... but is back to two naps again. We think he's either transitioning or was just teething. Teething is a mystery to me. He likes to wave at strangers, but mostly when they can't see him or aren't looking at him. He loves music and loves to dance, even if it's just to the beat of the dishwasher or washing machine. He loves to snuggle anything that is soft; he'll hold it in between his shoulder and cheek and say, "aw."  He's literally obsessed with his toothbrush and will throw a FIT if you take it away from him. I think I should start stashing an emergency toothbrush in my purse because it seems to be the answer to everything these days. He also obsesses over keys and will try to use them to open every single door in the house.

He still destroys the house. He still gets into everything he shouldn't. But he is SUCH a ham and so stinking funny that I think we'll keep him.
