Shrade: 15 months!

Here is an update on my precious Shrade at 15 months. I can't believe how our child is developing. It has been so fun for me to watch our baby grow from birth.

Says: ball, car, bird, bath, yeah, book (he doesn't exactly say the whole word, but he's got the gist)
Points to: head, ears, eyes mouth, feet, tummy, toes

He can point to things in books and loves to explore and discover with his toys. He is always carrying something in his hand that you cannot take from him.

He can clap his hands and just discovered how to put his hands behind his head. Sometimes he drops things behind his head (like his milk bottle when he's done).
Signs: more and all done (during meal time)
Understands: eat (walks to high chair), book (grabs a book from the box), snack (points to the cabinet with the snacks)

He can feed himself with his fingers and can play by himself for an hour. Shrade now has 14 teeth! Wow!

He just started walking in January and is very stable on his feet. This allows us to go to fun places like the park. He really loves the slide. We also just bought his first pair of shoes to wear outside! Excuse the crying picture. He just got up from a nap and didn't want to wear the hat. I thought he looked cute though!

We continue to go to library story time and of course, leaving after the play time is a bit rough. Shrade has shown us some of his "sinful" nature as he gets upset easily and will have a few tantrums with loud crying and body arching. Starting discipline and training at this age is so important to us. Thank goodness he usually has a good report from the nursery.

Shrade continues to have a great nap and night sleeping schedule. He rarely cries going to sleep or waking up which is such a blessing.

I think the best times we have with Shrade is when we sing to him and play fun games like hide and seek. Nothing is so precious as hearing the laughter from your baby and seeing their excited face.
