Wilson -- 15 months

Hey there, little blog! I haven't forgotten about you, I swear. Life has just been so crazy these past few weeks. Between holidays, MOVING, having company, finals, and a 15 month old, I've been a little too exhausted at night to write anything. But I'll be back when life settles down. 

I do really want to post Wilson's 15 month post. I missed 14 months and I feel like he has grown tons between 13 and 15 months. 

- I have no idea how much he weighs or how tall he is. Somewhere around 27 pounds, probably. 

- Wearing mostly 2t shirts and 18 month pants. 

- Still in size 5 diapers. He leaks out of his diaper every single night and it is driving me crazy! The kid pees so much at night! 

- Wilson has days where he loves food and is a mini garbage disposal, then some days he won't eat two bites. His favorite foods are yogurt, cheese, hot dogs, veggie burgers, and waffles. 

- Wilson finally started saying "real" words. He uses hi/hey, uh-oh, and bye correctly and frequently. He also knows tons of animal sounds (dog, horse, sheep, duck, kangaroo, fish, crocodile, tiger, monkey, elephant probably more I'm forgetting). His babbling sounds more and more like words. He can say mom and dad (no mama or dada for this kid)  but only if we prompt him. 

- He is loving singing and dancing now. I'm the worlds worst singer, but Wilson loves for me to sing him songs. He "sings" with me and sways to "dance". His favorite song is by far The ABC Song. I'll ask Wilson if he wants to sing his ABCs and he will "sing" A....B.... 

- Wilson is obsessed with Elmo. He will watch Elmo for 10 times longer than any other show. He can hear Elmo's voice from across the house and will come running when he hears it. 

- Tantrums. They happen daily. Full blown screaming, tuning red, throw down on the floor tantrums. I think most of them are frustration based and I try to help Wilson calm down as best I can, but they are rough. 

- To counter balance the tantrums, Wilson is becoming so affectionate. He will usually give anyone a kiss if they ask for it. My favorite, though, is when he just randomly runs up to me and give me a kiss and hug. It makes me melt and there is no better feeling. 

- I think we are in the midst of a sleep regression. Wilson was going down for naps and bedtime with no crying or fussing, but for the last few weeks, he has been majorly crying. I've had to rock him to sleep several times. Hopefully it's just a stage and I secretly don't mind getting to hold and rock him again. 

- Likes: Elmo, playing outside, coloring, the Christmas tree, baths

- Dislikes: diaper changes, being away from mom, not getting his way
