Fifteen months old

I'm a few days late, but thought I would put a bit of an update to remind myself of our little girl at 15 months old. Abigail currently:
  • Wears shoes nearly all-day everyday. It's one of the first things she does when she wakes up. She goes to her shoe drawer and picks out which shoes she wants to wear.
  • Is a complete mamma's girl. She loves her Daddy, but she wants to be with me most of the time. Other people she likes now include: Aunt Connie, Joni, Hita, Carla & Kristy. Also in her inner circle are Isaac, Sidge, and Scrubs.
  • Is so full of spunk and spirit and attitude and opinions. I just don't even now how to explain who she is in words. Maybe the pictures below will more accurately present her:

  • has a very limited vocabulary. Mama is loud and clear for me. She will also say some for of ball and bubba for her brothers. She definitely says night-night when going to sleep.
  • has one "word" that is definitely her favorite and it is an "ooh, ooh, ooh" noise that can drive you batty if you hear it all day. She uses it to get your attention, and we all feel it is just one step away from causing us to jump off a bridge!
  • Does not want to watch any TV or videos. The only thing she likes, for a few minutes, is to watch videos of her or her brothers on youtube.com.
  • Eats nearly anything and everything. If she doesn't like it, she will not humor you. It will be obvious immediately usually by an immediate spit out and then purposely feeding it to the dog.
  • Has very few toys that hold her interest -- at least not for more than a minute or two at a time. Exceptions include: her baby doll; and balls of all sorts and colors and sizes.
  • Loves her brothers terribly. Will let them help her, hold her, lead her, share with her.
  • Loves her dog more than the boys did at her age. Constantly giving him hugs.
  • Loves, loves, loves to be outside. It's all she wants to do really. She will stand by the door and beg and plead.
  • Is an absolute BEAR between 4-6pm. Her "bewitching hours" are fierce and full of much lamenting.
  • sleeps with a pacifier but is not allowed to have it out of her bed (or out of "resting" with us.)
  • sleeps through the night 7pm-6am (sometimes 7am).
  • naps two times a day (right now for a total of about 3 hours a day).
  • has a ton of signs. These include: all done, please, more, night-night, pacifier, eat, milk, up, hat and maybe a few others I am not thinking of.
  • seems quite tall for her age.
  • weighs around 25 pounds.
  • will ear almost any clothes I pick out. Will tell you if she is not comfortable wearing something.
  • gets very excited when Daddy gets home from work.
  • loves to be held and included in anything and everything you are doing. (It's her favorite pastime.)
