15 Months

Little man turned 15 months on December 8! He is quickly growing out of baby mode into full on toddler/big kid mode. The faces that kid gives me sometimes…mostly sweet and inquisitive, but there are plenty of stink faces to go around…like this one.

Silas is finally moving up the charts on weight! He weighs 22 pounds (15th percentile) and is 301/2 inches tall (25th-30th percentile). He is still nursing once a day and eats anything and everything. I would have to say his favorite foods right now are honey crisp apples, crackers, green peas, and cheese.

Silas has only said "momma" maybe twice and has called me "mum" only occasionally. He regularly says "dada", "dat", "go", "yeah", and lots of consonant sounds like "guh", "buh, ""ss", "ffh", and "tuh". I love watching him pretend to talk on the phone. He definitely understands what we are saying and can follow 1-2 step directions.

We are in trouble with Silas; he loves to play hard and appears to have absolutely no fear. His new favorite activity is to pull his arms back, babble something that sounds like "ready, set, go!", and will jump/fall into the couch, our bed, pillows on the ground, or us if we are laying down. He really enjoys pushing around his toy cars and tractors, making sounds for them and still reads his books. We are starting to become interested in stacking, puzzles, and shape sorting.

He is also a crazy daredevil with climbing furniture…we have little mini heart attacks multiple times a day over here. Even with supervision, crazy things can happen!

"What are you looking at?"

 Clapping at his accomplishment…

 …relishing in the view.

Silas is such a sweet, funny boy. He is very playful and carefree…I want to be more like him :). He absolutely LOVES music and has learned how to dance. The other day, we went to Bridge Street to do some Christmas shopping and Silas would run over to the speakers placed in the grassy centers and would start dancing…even spinning slowly in circles. Adam and I about died from how incredibly cute it was! Apparently, all of our dance parties in the kitchen are paying off! He is also known for trying to get up on stage during youth group's worship time. One time, they let him help lead…

He is also very tender hearted. He will cry in a way that would make you think you broke his little heart if you take food from him. This is not a common occurrence, so let me explain: there have been times Silas has put too much food in his mouth and I'm afraid he's going to get choked, he lays a cheerio down on the mall floor to eat later, or the other day, his cousins took an apple slice from him, thinking he wasn't supposed to have it. Every single one of those ended in him shedding very pitiful tears that hurts this Momma's heart.

He has a good cry face.

All in all, Silas is doing wonderful and he is such a blessing and joy to have around. I love being his Mommy!

 This face..this boy…
