Jack Jack:15 Months

Our little Jack-o-lantern is 15 months old!
We had his well-child check-up last week and he is healthy and right on track developmentally!

He of course had to explore every cupboard and drawer and play with the doctor's stool.

And was weirdly obsessed with this growth chart.

Here's our cute boy pre-shots, happy as can be:

And post this not the saddest face you've ever seen!?

Here's a little bit about our sweet little boy at 15 months:

-He is 23lb9oz (40%) and 30.5" long (40%). His head is in the 75th percentile.
-He wears size 4 diapers, size 4 shoes, and size 12 or 18 month clothes.
-He has 11 teeth (or maybe 12 but he doesn't like me to feel his gums!...we've just been waiting on the last first year molar but I wouldn't be surprised if it's in. Once the first one came in the next two came within a few days).
-He waves and says "hi!" to everybody, including animals. For example, while at the park one day we saw a squirrel, ran toward it waving excitedly and saying "hi! hi!" I wonder if he wonders why the animals don't respond?
-He LOVES to play outside. For some reason the front yard is more fun than the backyard.
He can say hi, shoes, no, bye, uh-oh, thank you, mama, dada, hot, football ("but-ball"), binky ("bibi"), whoa, wow, uh-huh and mmhmm and randomly copies other words but I don't know that he really knows what they mean.
-He imitates letter sounds. Tell him "B says buh buh buh" and he will repeat the B sound.
-He is obsessed with graham crackers!

-He also loves PB&J sandwiches, grapes, bananas, and oatmeal. He's a really good eater and not very picky at all! He also loves any kind of candy, of course.
-He loves bath time! But does not like having his hair rinsed or washed.

-He LOVES airplanes and never fails to hear one passing overhead. Several times a day he'll point to the sky and imitate the sound of a plane...there is always at least a faint sound of one. It's crazy how many things we tune out in our every day world as we get used to the sounds. I don't notice half the planes passing overhead until Jack starts pointing and making airplane sounds.  Same goes for dogs...he hears the faintest dog bark and gets so excited! I don't even notice them!  The world has become a much more exciting place all of a sudden.
-He LOVES to read. He can be found reading to himself several times a day but also loves being read to.  His current favorite book is Llama Llama Nighty Night. He got it in the mail from my sister for his birthday and has been obsessed ever since.
-He love, love, loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or anything Mickey Mouse. He gets so excited when he hears the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song. He also loves Jake & the Neverland Pirates.
-He loves to turn on radios and "dance" which for him is really just waving his hand in the air.  He somehow figures out how to turn on every radio he sees even though we don't even have one anywhere in our house!  We listen to Pandora toddler station a lot around here though :]
-After one long night of sleep training (round one million - it seems like we always ruin his good sleep habits somehow!), he is finally back to sleeping in his crib all night long! Hooray!

I cannot even imagine our life before Jack Jack. I probably say that all the time but it's so true! Life must have been so boring before we had this little guy around! Not that T is boring or anything. But littles just make life so much fun! Everything seems special and magical with a little Imagineer around.

We love you, sweet Jack Jack!
