crue: 15 M0NTHS!

i wasn't sure how i would do these monthly updates after C turned 1, or if i would do them at all - but after today's 15 month check up with stats, i realized how much i want to remember these. of course i missed month 13&14, so i think i'll stick to the larger "milestone" months and when we get to 24, i can re-evaluate. for now, i won't think about my baby being two!

doctor appointment: 11/18/14 (just a little late!)

height: 31 1/4in // 44%tile
weight: 21lb 13oz // 31% (19lb 6oz at his 12 month appt)
head: 18in // 52% (finally averaging out with his body, his head use to be in the 90%tile!)

i feel like he may be a little bit taller than what they got measured, because he had a HUGE growth spurt since his birthday and no longer can wear his 6-12month pants because they're all too short. we definitely outgrew 6-12 faster than any size prior to that! 

i was a little worried about his vocabulary, or lack there of. crue says "dada, beau beau, hi, ha ha, and ho ho ho" at the drop of a hat but it doesn't extend to much beyond that. every once in a while he will say mama, fishies or vroom vroom but those words are far more scarce. the pediatrician said 3-5 words right now is JUST fine and we shouldn't worry! that was nice to hear. 

c man is REALLY good at understanding things. puts his hands together when we tell him to say his prayers, throws all of his diapers away, grabs the towel from the kitchen to wipe up anything he spills, throws anything you ask him to away (he's a huge fan of tossing stuff in the garbage!), will find his shoes, his paci, his soccer ball, football, basketball down to specific items like the red block or the talking puppy. loves to put his socks or shoes on. he will go to the kitchen when asked if he wants to eat. likes to grab his own sippy out of the fridge and put it back in the fridge by himself.

absolutely hates having his diaper changed. still.

he is still daddy obsessed and will cry forever if he sees isaiah leave for any reason. this includes going to the bathroom or taking a shower. it is kind of exhausting and sometimes hurts my mommy heart!

knows where his feet, belly button, nose and mouth are. likes to wipe his mouth after eating and drinking. sometimes knows where his eyes and ears are. 

still cosleeping. i am sure that we will skip the crib at this point and switch right to a toddler bed. debating on getting one for christmas and seeing how all of that will come together sometime after. 

best meal is breakfast and it slowly declines from there. lunch is about half and dinner is close to notta. he spends most of dinner time throwing everything on the floor, across the room or at us. it is so frustrating! our ped told us to ignore it and he'll outgrow the phase (just like his head banging phase) but it is so hard to ignore flying food when it smacks you while you're eating dinner! naughty.

obsessed with his hockey stick, that hasn't changed one bit. i am pretty sure he spends 80% of his day playing sorts in a hockey or golf action. he could care less about painting activities. definitely showing more interest in books now though! :)

i can't get enough of his little dancing moves. he shakes his groove thang like no other! mainly to rap music. #momoftheyear 

its been below freezing here in MN for the last 10 days with single digit temps, and i am pretty sure he is picking up on that. when he gets in his car seat now he will shake and say BRRRRR. poor little guy spent last winter bundled in his car seat never having to get out and now he's getting a taste of our MN winters! 

such a happy boy. we are so blessed. 

i love you to pieces crumanji.


  1. H is the same way with his food. It's so frustrating!! And he's also daddy obsessed. He wakes up saying "dadadadada daddy!!!!!" almost every morning.
    Your sweet little Crue is just too precious. I love how stylish you dress him!

  2. I LOVE you two! Those tops are too cute!! What a sweet little boy! XOXO

  3. Turner is obsessed with the garbage as gross! Also...tell C man if he doesn't like his diaper changed, then he should be potty trained and go on big boy potty :) #wishfulthinking
    They grow way too fast!!!

  4. Hey lady! Saw that you entered another FP giveaway on another blog and wanted to share this one with you also that I’m hosting through Monday. Good luck!

  5. I can't believe C is 15 months. For real. Remember when we were texting as you were in the hospital waiting for his arrival?! I'm pretty sure that happened YESTERDAY.
    I love that little boy's smile. Love his momma, too. :)

  6. I still struggle to remember that everything with them is just a phase....but it is! :)

  7. Weston doesn't say a lot of words yet either - he babbles all day, I just have no idea what he's saying. HAHAHA This winter is for the birds.

  8. I have a few questions for you:
    Does Crue still hate his car seat? Does he still nap on you? If not, how did you get him to nap somewhere else? We're feeling the same way about the crib. We'll definitely do a toddler bed instead. I'll be reading closely for any developments on that in the future :)
