15 Months Old

James had his 15-month well-baby check on Christmas Eve. The office was strangely empty.

He wanted to read the book. (Look how much he's leaned out!)

Why, hello there.

What is this!?

And those vital statistics (this is the chart I use to calculate the exact percentile):

Weight 22 pounds, 8 ounces  (20th percentile)
Length 30 inches (16th percentile)
Head Circumference 19 inches (78th percentile)

What's new since our last doctor's visit?
  • Walking
  • Climbing
  • Throwing (good gracious, this kid has an arm)
  • A few new signs ("more," "nurse," shaking his head "no")
  • He hasn't added any words since 12 months, but his receptive vocabulary has taken off  (following simple commands, like "Bring me the shoes")
  • A newfound love of reading (Where is Baby? and Where is Baby's Christmas Present? are his two favorites)
  • Scribbling with crayons
  • Tantruming when he doesn't get his way
  • Using a spoon


  1. Did I send him the monkey diaper when he was born? It's so adorable. Also the kid in it.

    1. Yes! The monkey diaper was from you. It got a compliment from the nurse!
