15 months old

Although Jacob passed his 15-month mark a couple of weeks ago, we didn't have his well visit until today. Here are his stats:

Weight: 25 lbs. 14 oz.
Height: 33 inches

(to compare with Joseph at 15 months: weight: 27 lbs. 14 oz. and 33.5 inches)

Which puts him in the 50th and 95th percentiles respectively. He has certainly slimmed down since he has started running everywhere. And with this most recent round of teething he hasn't been eating quite as much as usual. I'm sure his appetite will be back full force once we get in these 4 cuspids! The last of his molars broke through about a month ago so we are up to 12 teeth in that little mouth.

He is far more curious that Joseph ever was. Once Joseph would realize that a cabinet door was "locked" he rarely tried it again. Eventually we were able to operate without safety latches. Jacob tries all doors almost daily . . . just in case.

He is still taking 2 naps on most days. Every once in awhile I'll think that we're getting close to dropping the morning nap but then the next day he'll sleep for 2 hours at both naps.

He jabbers all of the time and we are recognizing a few more words. He regularly says: hi, bye, mama, daddy, no touch, touch, diaper, uh-oh. He uses a few other words occasionally but not enough for me to think he has a good grasp on them. He still signs: please, more and all done.

He is very interactive and loves to play "So Big!" He also loves to be sung and read to. Joseph has started helping with the bed-time story reading to Jacob which is about the cutest/sweetest thing ever. They love to play/wrestle with and fight/annoy each other.
