Carter's 15 month checkup - only 5 weeks late

Carter at 15 months

Anna at 15 months

After rescheduling a few times at the dr. Carter finally had is 15 month checkup at almost 16 1/2 months.

He weighed about 26.5 lbs - 75th percentile
He was 32 inches long - 75th percentile
Head size I don't recall except that it was 90th percentile. Still a big noggin.

This means he only weighs about 3 pounds less than Anna. He is going to pass her by in no time flat.

This also means he's gained over 6 pounds in 4 months, if I look at his 12 month checkup stats.

I can't seem to find Anna's 15 month stats. Not sure where I wrote those down. Big surprise.

He had been talking and then sort of quit for a few months. Now he is finally saying all kinds of words including
(these two sound the same except in context)
and alsmot anything else you ask him to repeat including two words together.

He knows everything you say, like "Carter go get your shoes and put them on. They're in the bedroom."

He loves mimicking his sister in everything she does including coloring and running around the house.

He likes to annoy his mother by climbing into the chairs in the kitchen and reach everything on the table.

He throws the remaining food on his highchair onto the floor when he is done, without warning. Thank god we have dogs to clean this mess up.

He loves his blankies so much that we have nicknamed him Linus. He will even lay down on the floor with a blankie and let Anna "put him to sleep"

He loves bananas and milk.

He loves to snuggle.

He still takes two two hour naps for me on the weekends, if I let him. He only sleeps an hour at daycare.

If you don't watch him he will be into the dog water or toilet bowl fast. He also loves to climb onto the step stool in the bathroom and put the toothpaste tube in his mouth, or brush his hair with my hairbrushes that are as big as his head.

Love him!

Awww....your "little" boy is growing so fast! I think Cameron and Carter have about the same growth rate. Cameron has his 9 month checkup today and he's already grown out of the 20-22 lb car seat and into a "big boy" car seat. All his pants look like shorts right now. He's rocking back and forth on his hands and knees and wanting to pull himself up on anything he can get his hands on. Where did the time go? Didn't I bring him home just yesterday?

Anna putting the blankets over Carter is too cute. What a good big sister.
