Okay, so Norah is 15 months old. For some reason this feels like a watershed moment, and we must therefore chronicle. Not that our blog isn't all about her anyway...
First, she loves to read books. It's pretty awesome, especially when she brings a book over to you for you to read with her. It's even better when she's got the book memorized; she'll anticipate the next page by saying the next word or doing the next motion before you get there.
She loves all her little friends. And forts.
She is still a water baby. Bath, pool, ocean, fountains, you name it. They all get her excited. And at 15 months, she now has enough hair to create the obligatory shampoo mohawk.
She is also talking a lot. Most of what she says is hard to decipher, but sometimes she goes on for a while and gets really animated. Check it out:
She's probably proposing effective health care solutions, to no avail.
Here's what we can tell she's saying for sure:
hi, or hey! (high-pitched to low pitched)
moon (said for both moon and balloon)
ding dong (said "din don")
shoes (said "sues")
banana (na na)
baby (said "bee bee," whispered)
bah ba (bottle)
night night (nigh nigh)
thank you (said "da doo")
Plex (the magic robot from Yo Gabba Gabba)
Finally, she is cruising. Her special crawl is now officially a thing of the past. I truly think the motivating factor for walking was having both hands available for carrying stuff.
Is it just me or is all this growth happening really fast?
