15 Months

15 Months!

I love that her hair is starting to come in more
"Done with the pictures mama"
"I'm outta here"
"See you later"
The sprinklers got the best of her
Getting love from dada after falling into the
raspberry bush (face first)
Poor baby and her little scratches... she is all better now.
Natasha loves all animals

More water fun

Obviously time has not slowed down at all because our baby girl is 15 months old! How can that be? We had her 15 month checkup and everything is great with our Natasha. Her vocabulary consists of about 10 to 12 words. She has reached all of the developmental milestones for her age (plus a couple of the 18 month ones). Here are her currant stats:

Weight: 24 lbs. 2 oz. (70th percentile... she was weighed on the big scale standing up)
Length: 30 1/2 inches (55th percentile... I don't think they got the most accurate measurement since Natasha did not want to he held down. I think she is a bit taller)
Head Circumference: 46 1/2 cm (60-70th percentile)

Natasha also got 2 shots at this appointment. I think she knew what was coming because again she did not want to be held down. After the shots, she cried for about 20 seconds and then she was fine.

So what else is new with our little girl? I am in the process of weaning her completely from nursing (only 2 feedings a day left). To be honest I don't want to stop, but I think Natasha is ready and I will have to be ready since I will be away from her for two whole days next weekend (yikes)! She is doing a lot better drinking whole milk, which has made this process a tad easier. I just don't want my baby to grow up!

Besides babbling all day long (boy, is our cell phone bills going to be expensive), Natasha loves everything to do with the waa-waa (aka: water). The moment daddy comes home from work, Natasha will run to the door leading out to the backyard and say "waa-waa, waa-waa." Yesterday she actually went outside to the hose and pulled up the cover waiting for Zac to come and water the garden. She also loves going to the pool and the water park or splash park. Since it has been nice and warm lately we have been meeting our friends at the water establishments in Ladera 2 or 3 times a week. And then there is shower time... still no bath, but we have been pretty successful with showers after dinner. I think she just likes to be sprayed with water. But her favorite thing of all is eating watermelon! This kid would probably eat a whole watermelon in one day if we let her. She will run to the fridge and point up and say "waa-waa." And no, she does not want water because she has pushed her sippy cup away when offered water instead. It's a good thing it's summertime and watermelon is in season... hopefully I can get it year round.

In other family news, Uncle Matt and Auntie Lizzy are expecting! Natasha is going to have a cousin this December. We are so happy and excited for them and can't wait to meet their little baby bean!

Thanks for checking up on our little monkey! We hope you have a safe and fun 4th of July weekend!


  1. I always love seeing the updates on Natasha. I am looking forward to seeing her again.

  2. Such a cutie! She's such a water baby! And I think Kyra has that same exact outfit!

  3. I just realized I didn't clarify my "outfit" comment. I was referring to the top flowery outfit. And poor Natasha! I hope she wasn't too upset about falling into the bush!
