15 months old

This is such a fun age. Hunter is so interested in learning right now. He wants to know about EVERYTHING around him and we hear him ask "whaszat" (what's that) about 437 times a day. It really is adorable and he definately has his favorites right now such as lights, outside, flowers, and himself HA! He walks around talking ALL DAY LONG and he learns multiple new words day. I have no idea how many words he knows now... too many to keep track of at this point.

Hunter at 15 months
He is still super snuggly and sweet but has recently become quite the "mini tantrum" fanatic :) He knows what he wants but doesn't always know how to communicate it, so it turns into little 3 second tantrums that are over as soon as they begin.

He had a rough week this past week cutting 4 molars and a lateral incisor AT THE SAME TIME! I can't even imagine the pain he has been in but he handled it rather well considering. His lateral incisor came in COMPLETELY sideways because of lack of room so that will make for some fun pics later :)

That brings him up to 13 teeth total and this is my best attempt at a teeth pic.
One of his favorite things right now is drinking from a real cup. He is pretty good at it! He also LOVES to "pretend" to drink from a cup. In the mornings I drink coffee out of a thermos and I give him one to carry around and pretend to drink out of. He will climb up on the couch next to me and "drink" out of his as I drink mine... so cute.
Nice outfit huh?

He also loves playing with anything that is not really a toy
He is really into books right now and he will "read" them on his own for a while or go get a few from his room and bring them to me to read to him.

He is really interested in feeding himself with utensils right now too. He is pretty good at it but is quite a bit messier than when we feed him. It takes about 4 times as long to get through the meal but he's gotta start somewhere!

He weighs about 25.5 pounds and wears size 5 diapers. He is in 18 month clothes and size 5 shoes. He walks around barefoot most of the time so when he wears hard soled shoes he has a little trouble getting used to all the extra support... so he still walks a little goofy in shoes.

He is in the transition from 2 naps to 1 nap per day. On most days of the week he sleeps 7:30pm-8:00am with one 3 hour nap from 11:30a-2:30p but some days he wakes up earlier like at 6:30am and needs two smaller naps (9:30-11:00) and (2:30-4:00) but on those days he stays up much later at night (like 8:30 or 8:45pm) because of the late afternoon nap. So I kind of prefer the 1 nap days because it gives us our evening still and I get to sleep later in the mornings plus one nap is easier to schedule outings around, like going to the beach (which he loves to do)! Either way he is always in a good mood and is such a good sleeper (except for when we travel...then "travel Hunter" is a totally different story in the sleep department).

He is getting really good at following directions and will go get me a diaper when I ask him to and will sometimes tell me when he has a dirty diaper (I don't blame him).

Praise baby is still his favorite video to watch and he usually only sees it on plane rides that he takes just about every weekend. He is such a good traveler and has been on over 50 flights in his short 15 months of life and has done so well on ALL of them!

We are having such a blast with this little guy. He just makes our days so much fun.
