It's so easy to post pics on Instagram straight from my phone, that I have neglected our family blog.  So here is an update... Finally!  Nikolaus is almost 16 months old and he is a busy little guy.  He has a big appetite and constantly carries his snack cup around.  He doesn't have very many words, but he is pretty vocal (probably just trying to get a word in around his chatty sister).  And he absolutely loves being outside.  Whether it is digging in the dirt, swinging in the swing, or riding in his red car, the outdoors always seems to bring a smile to his face.  Nikolaus is also quite the little entertainer.  He loves to dance (pushing the floor down is his move), showing off his push-ups and squats, and playing peek-a-boo. 
Nikolaus had a great 15 month appointment.  With the exception of having very few words, he is on track with all his other milestones.  Here are his stats:
Weight: 23 lbs. 12.5 oz. (50th percentile)
Length: 32 in. (75th percentile)
Head Circumference: 47 3/4 cm. (75-90th percentile)

He had to get some shots and took them like a champ, especially when there was a lollipop dangling in front of him (it's a good trick... try it next time).  Like I said this boy loves food.  I have a feeling he will be eating us out of our home in his teenage years.  Forget saving for college, we might need to save for groceries... Ha!
