12-15 MONTHS

**I waited to post this update because it had some important information that was not yet released and then we got busy and now I am covering three months in one post, oops :)

Weight: According to the doctor's she is still right about 17 lbs and 2 ounces (still pretty close to that at 15 months since she is always moving!)

Height: She screamed the entire time at the doctor's so they measured her twice...she is about 28 inches (this is probably pretty close too, but maybe another inch?)

Nicknames: Mostly pumpkin and puppet (by daddy) (same!)

Eating: Well we got some unexpected news this fact Sadie was the first one to get suspicious.  She started acting really fussy while nursing and she even bit me a couple of times which is very unlike her.  Well it turns out, she knew she was sharing her milk with her future sibling and she wasn't happy about it :)  So per doctor's orders, we started weaning her quickly.  It actually went much better than I thought it would, especially since I was not planning to wean her any time soon.  Dropping the night feedings were toughest, but within just a few days, we were down to just one early morning feeding.  That feeding is still going on, but hopefully we can get rid of that one soon. She has taken my frozen milk in her sippy cup like a champ so we haven't started actual milk yet, but my freezer stash is dwindling quickly. Now Sadie pretty much eats anything and everything you give her.  So far she has had (this month in italics): avocado, sweet potato, green beans, squash, pears, carrots, cucumber, apple, bananas, nectarines, watermelon, blueberries, oatmealcelery, peas, bell pepper, broccoli, chicken, brown rice, plums, mango, greek yogurt, figs, apricots, plumcots, artichoke, and a small taste of my banana slurpee on 7-11, pumpkin, toast, ground beef, string cheese, spaghetti noodles, steak, hmmm pretty much everything we eat now....and ummm this girl puts it away! She loves her food! (She eats so much! She gets picky occasionally, especially when she would rather have what is on your plate, but overall a great eater.)

Sleeping: Now that I am not nursing Sadie, she is sleeping all night long! What?!! Seriously! Every once in awhile she will have an off night and there were a couple of rough nights when she really wanted to nurse, but for the most part we have been living in dream land.  She goes down at about 9pm, a little later than before, but she actually does much better now.  She sleeps until about 5-7am and then she will nurse (hopefully soon this will be gone too!).  She will usually go back to asleep until about 7:30 or 8am.  Naps are still hit or miss, but now that we are sleeping at night, I don't even care :) (Sleep has been all over the place.  She has gotten almost five teeth since her first birthday!! She also had two colds.  She sleeps great most nights, just in our bed...)

Diapers/Clothes: Size 3 diapers.  Clothing is mostly 9 month, with some 6 month mixed in. <-----same! (same!)

Social: Daddy went back to work and mommy got hit with morning sickness, so we haven't been on quite as many adventures lately.  Sadie can now wave and clap though! She also took her first steps this a boy of course! (see list below!)

At 15 months Sadie is....
-full on walking/runnning, she never even crawls anymore :(
-saying "kitty", "mama", "dada", some form of dog... and "bubbles"
-dancing and loving music (favorite songs are Frozen and the new Brad Paisley album)
-pointing at everything
-pulling things out of everything
-eating a horse...literally, ok not literally, but this girl puts food away
-loving disciplining the dogs :)
-saying "meow"and "moo".  She does this for any animal that she sees....
-able to find airplanes in the sky when she hears them
-helping to unload the dishwasher #gamechanger
-going up and down stairs and steps like a pro
-loving picking out her favorite books, carrying them to you and sitting on your lap to read them
-able to follow other simple commands (get mommy a diaper, hand that to daddy, 
-able to throw things away in the trash and "no")
-kicking soccer balls
-hitting balls with her clubs, although she prefers carrying her golf bag around with her wherever she goes
-playing hide and seek
-loving picking out her own outfits, you better not forget shoes or a bow or she will let you know!
-giving kisses and blowing kisses
-able to recognize what "hot" means....she blows into her hands 
-loving hanging out with older kids, she wants to be big so bad
-fake coughing and fake laughing when other people are laughing
-loving going to a little indoor play place by our house.  She runs around with the biggest smile on her face the entire time we are there.
-able to point to her nose, eyes, mouth and toes most of the time when asked :)
