one and a quarter!

15 Months. It has gone so fast. Just 3 months ago I was freaking out because he had just turned one. Too fast.
We went to the Dr for his well baby check. Every thing is good. He is 33 inches long and 25 lbs. So he is in the 95% for his height and 75% for his weight. He is so skinny. The Dr was pretty impressed that he was so tall and doesn't drink milk. I have tried goats milk, but he refuses. Will not drink it. But the Dr said he is getting enough calcium from all the string cheese he eats.
The Dr was also very impressed with the way he is putting words together on his own. He said that he is speaking like a 2-3 year old. Great. That just means he will be mouthing off even sooner than his friends. No really though, it is fun with him saying so many words. Daddy and I counted the other day and he knows about 30 words. That is not just repeating what we say, that is just speaking on his own. Everything else though he repeats. So we have to be very careful about what we say. One day I said, "crap!" because I slammed my finger. He ran around for the next hour yelling, "cwap! cwap!" Luckily he stopped before daddy got home.
I have taught him how to say "bless you" when someone sneezes. So far he will only do it when we are alone, but it really is cute. He hams up around everyone else. "Bwess you!" Sometimes I fake a sneeze just so I can hear it. :)
Yesterday he mastered Aunt Kimmy(aunt mimi) and Aunt Donna. He had been calling her Nonna, but yesterday he spit it out just perfectly. He will bring me the phone and say, "Nonna, Nonna. Hi!"
He is changing so much everyday. He loves his trucks. He loves to push them around and make the noises. He still plays with his baby doll, but he still acts like a boy with it. He drags it around by its feet or face. He has such a little personality. And boy does he love his "dods." At the end of a long day he will curl up with Tela and just about fall asleep. He loves to sit on her front legs and lean back against her and just rest. And she just lays there. He will stick his face right in hers until she licks him and then say, "ew!" One day I caught him licking her face. Lets just say I was not too happy with that. He loves his "Doot" too but he is still too much of a puppy to lay down and be crawled on. Bear still tries though. He has gotten real good at hugging his behind real quick before Duke can run away.
Sigh. I guess I had better get used to this because I am guessing the rest of his life is going to go this fast too.
