Collin is 15 Months Old!

I really can’t believe that FIFTEEN months have gone by since the fist time I held my sweet little boy in my arms. I LOVE watching him grow and learn new things everyday. His vocabulary is growing, he understands when we tell him to do things, he learns how to play in new ways all the time. It really is amazing to watch. There is no way I could write about all the new things he does, but I’m gong to list some of my favorites.

  • At his 15 month appointment he was 31 inches tall and weighed 22 pounds
  • He’s still wearing 12 and 18 month clothes
  • He wears a belt with his 12 month pants to keep them up :)
  • He’s down to one nap a day, and it’s always for at least two hours, sometimes more depending on what we did that morning
  • Over Christmas he weaned completely. It was bittersweet (now he has to eat almost immediately when he wakes up)
  • He can go up and down the stairs on his own, but would rather hold your hands and take one step at a time
  • Says “BYE!” before bedtime and gives kisses
  • Climbs in and out of the car himself


  • Climbs in and out of the bathtub himself
  • Likes to brush his teeth standing on his stool at the sink before his bath


  • Dips his food in ranch, bbq, ketchup, or anything else that resembles a sauce
  • uses a fork and a spoon to feed himself

  • Blows on his food before he eats is
  • Says “HOT” and holds his hand over things… even if it is cold or an inanimate object. Needless to say we are working on “cold”


  • He actually says “MMMMUAH!” when he give a kiss
  • Dances when he hears music – ESPECIALLY the Fresh Beat Band on Nick or NickJr.
  • Runs straight for the swings at the playground


  • Was absolutely amazed with the Christmas tree
  • Wakes up from his ONE afternoon nap and walks straight to “his” cabinet and says, the hard “c” sound twice “c-c” is Cookie or “wan dat”
  • Has actually started to cuddle with me. In the mornings when I’m not quite ready to get out of bed at 7 or 7:30 I’ll get him a box of raisins and turn on PBS and he’ll just lay in bed with me :) It’s my new favorite thing in the entire world
  • Says “cat” almost every time he sees one. Whether its one of our cats, a cat on TV, in a picture…. or my personal favorite, our DOG Carly. :) We’ve been working on “DOG” and he’s getting a little better
  • Point furiously and repeated at things and says “wan dat! wan dat! want dat!” 


And with that, I leave you with more cute pictures :)
