15 Months

Time flies by when you are having fun, and Daniel and I have TONS of fun. He is a great little guy, very active, and strong willed, but such a sweet baby. He is bubbly, friendly, and always excited about something. I call him my little jibber jabber because he talks all day long. I only comprehend about 1/4 of what he is saying, but I love hearing his little falsetto voice echoing through the house.

Here are some of his current loves:

Slides (climbing up them)
His blanket(s) that his Grandma made for him. She made 3 b/c he has to be holding one at all times.
Ceiling fans
Pretending to drive the car
Car keys (he lost mine this week and we could not find them for 2 whole days)
All kitchen utensils
Riding behind me on my bike
Here are the words that he loves to say:

No No
Turtle (we have no idea where this one came from)
Ruf Ruf
'What's that?'
Uh oh!
'Its a.. (then he adds whatever word he wants)!'

One of my favorite parts of the day is when he wakes up. He lights up when I open the door to his room, stands up, claps, giggles, and falls down. It is the best way to start the day. He also loves to cuddle in the morning. For the first 30 minutes after I pull his little warm body out of bed, we sit on couch together and read or just hang out.

I know say this about EVERY stage, but this one seems to be the best so far. I cannot wait to see what the next few months have in store for us!

Um, his eyes are out of control beautiful. Wow!
Glad to see you guys are doing well. I also liked your post about the DNC. What did you think about the RNC? Palin?

I LOVED 15-18 months! They were my favorite so far! Still baby-ish but able to communicate a little!

I love love LOVE these pictures of him. His blue eyes are so gorgeous (or should I say handsome...) I can't believe how old our boys are getting. And I agree with you, this age is SOO much fun! Can't wait to see you guys next week!

Are you kidding?! He is so cute!!! Seriously!

Hey will you email me your email address, I just realized I only have your old Credit Suisse one?

George Family said...

Oh Jen! He is SO cute! You make me so excited to watch Hunter grow - it's just amazing to see what Daniel is up to these days. I wish we could get them together...Hunter always smiles at other babies so I'd love to see their interaction!

Jen, totally found your blog, hello! It's so fun having you in Rochester. When you get back from London (SOOO jealous, by the way) we must get Lucas and Daniel together again to play. Our blog is private, so shoot me an email at and I will send you an invite.

See you Sunday!

So cute! I'm so glad that I started listing the things that Jack is doing each month.. because it changes so fast and if you have a memory like mine, you won't be able to keep anything straight two weeks down the road! :)

He's grown so much in just the last couple months since we saw him last!

Burnhams said...

Sami said...

They grow so fast! Okay so I am totally jealous about your trip to London! How fun!

I hope you had a great time in London too!!
