15 months

I try to make a mental list of things Bryce is doing as the month milestones come up, but this month my brain couldn't hold it all. Bryce is doing SO much these days.

  • He can recognize most animals and tell you the sound they make (monkey, cat, and snake are my favorite).
  • He has a large vocabulary and calls many things by name when he sees them. He is currently loving airplanes, tractors, geese and ducks.
  • He no longer refers to Macy as dog. He calls her by her name, which sounds like "bacy".
  • He says thank you and bless you most of the time without prompting.
  • He can count to 2. I know that is only two numbers, but he gets it! We are working on counting to 3 because he currently says 1, 2, 5.
  • I noticed Bryce's 6th tooth coming in this weekend. I'm no expert on teeth, but I think it's a one year molar. Is there such a thing?
  • He weighs 22.2 pounds, which only puts him in the 10-25 percentile. This is nothing new to us. We were just happy he gained weight this time.
  • Bryce grew an inch and a half and is now 30 inches tall (also 10-25 percentile).

Today's doctor visit was probably the worst to date. As soon as I took him back to the room, he started screaming. It was quite a challenge getting him undressed and onto the scale. He was not happy about it and it took him a long time to calm down, only to start back up when the doctor finally came in. We were practically yelling at each other during the exam. Tears aside, he checked out just fine! It didn't help that Bryce had gotten stung by a bee earlier in the day (thank goodness for no allergies) and we had to cut his nap short so I could get him to the doctor in time. Luckily our next visit is over the summer so I was able to plan around his schedule and not mine. The doctor felt so bad for him today that she only gave him 2 shots. That means more next time. Poor kid!
