The One with Fox at 15 Months


Sunday, January 15, 2012

Another month has come and gone - making Fox 15 months old! These stats were taken last Saturday when we went to the doc to find out what was wrong with him (result: a pesky virus. He's all better now):

 Length: 32" (50-75%) 
 Weight: 23.2 pounds (25-50%) 
 Head circumference: 19.25" (75-90%)

How has Fox grown and developed in the last thirty-some-odd days?

(This is the best "15 month" shot we got... keep reading...)

He said his first word (besides "uh oh"): "Shoes!" I'm a proud momma :) Except it sounds more like "eeesh!"

Sometimes I'll find him sitting in his room "reading" a book. It's pretty much the cutest thing in the world to see him turn the pages, point at things, and "talk." He really thinks he's reading!

Fox is still a picky eater. Finding things for him to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is a challenge every day. He'll like something for 2-3 days then never eat it again. So we're trying and experimenting with lots of new foods.

A pacifier might as well be permanently glued in his mouth. This could be a problem.

He does this new corny laugh/smile where he throws his head back and opens his mouth real wide and laughs. Gotta get this one on video.

We went on the "big kid" swing for the first time the other day! He loves it.

He understands some things that we say to him. For example, I'll say, "Fox, go get your shoes!" then he'll go into his room and bring me a pair of shoes. Or I point at a toy and say, "Go get your toy!" and he'll get the one I'm pointing to. I'll say, "Go get a book and we'll turn the page!" and he'll bring me a book. I'll say, "It's bath time!" and he'll walk to the tub. Next step: Harvard. 

We've watched Toy Story 13985719865 times. He loves it. It's the only thing that calmes him down during a meltdown. 

He's in a bit of a rotten streak right now and screams and whines and bangs his head all the live long day. It's been a rough couple weeks, but hopefully he'll outgrow it soon.

Fox loves to be outside and exploring and prefers that to any of his toys.

We love you baby Fox!

  10. I love you too baby Fox! He's growing up so quick, I can't even believe it. HAH I seriously can't get over that his first word was "shoes". Can't wait to see a video of him throwing his head back and laughing!

  11. He just keeps getting cuter every day! He looks so feisty, he will most likely quit the head bucking after the terrible two's :). Seems far away doesn't it? Hang in there, time flies with little ones as you well know! :)

  13. I love his hair....it's so full and so soft looking. My kids were each addicted to their pacifiers too...one day we took the paci away (when the kid didn't have it in his/her mouth) and pretended to lose it and not be able to find it....the next day, they forgot. They remembered we lost them and life went on. Worth a shot if you want to break him of it. The joys of motherhood :)

  16. Awww! Sorry he's been having meltdowns. Poor thing. :-( Hang in there! ;-)

    Also, when did his eyes change from grey to hazel? Did I miss that post? LOL. I'm keeping up as best I can! LOL. Honestly, your blog is the ONLY blog I'm still reading. Man, I need to get back into blogging/reading blogs. *sigh*

    Sorry about the pacifier thing too. Isn't it funny things they love and hold onto? Hattie loves little, soft blankies or burp cloths. :-) At the very beginning (well, starting at 3-4 weeks), we only gave Hattie a pacifier when sleeping. We still do this and stay true to it, and she seems to be great with that. Maybe you could try that with the next one? Her pacifier even lives in her bed. LOL. :-p Well, we have one for the diaper bag too, just in case she has to sleep while we're out at church or wherever. :-)

    And of course, Fox is still adorable!!! :-D
