15 Months Old

Jessie is now 15 months old. How is that even possible? We have a toddler, into everything!! And of course everything goes into her mouth. She babbles a mile a minute and seems to assume we understand her. She can sign eat, more, daddy & please. I pulled out the sign language book we got when Maggie was a baby to see if we can add more signs to her vocabulary. She loves to sing and dance and has her favorite songs, especially "Lance the Turtle," a Veggie Tales Silly Song.

She is 21 lbs and 6 oz and 30 inches long. She has 5 teeth. Still not much hair but does have the start of a mullet, a curly mullet no less!! Her hair has lightened up so she may be a little blondie like her sister. Her eyes are looking hazel but I'm not expecting them to settle on a color just yet as Maggie was over 2 when hers finally did.

Maggie is starting to see the downsides to having a baby sister. Jessie watches Maggie play some of her imagination games and wants to jump in and play too. Maggie has very specific ideas of how her imagination games should go so it will be awhile before Jessie will be welcome! Maggie is a good big sister though and willingly shares the attention.

Jessie will try almost any food but still prefers to nurse at home. I haven't decided when to wean her and am kind of letting her take the lead on that. I'm kind of curious to see how long she goes, and, as I won't nurse any other babies, I guess I'm not willing to let my baby go completely.

She is such a happy baby. I don't know how we got so blessed to get 2 beautiful, healthy, happy girls. But we did and I thank God every day.
