Tate at 15 months

I still can't believe how fast time flies. My little guy is already 15 months old (and I am on the planning committee for my 10-year collge reunion)! I'm at a point in my life where the days seem long but the years seem short. And my little baby is growing up so fast. At his appointment he weighed in at 23 pounds, 12 ounces--quite normal for a 15-month old boy. Only 4 pounds lighter than his 3-year-old sister. He says a few words--mine and no are the current favorites, along with mama, dada, baba (bottle), drink, cracker, ball, dog, book, bubbles and a few more I'm sure I'm forgetting. He's also into animal sounds, his favorite is "ah ah" for monkey.

Tate is also very into books lately, which is somewhat impressive considering I read to him all of maybe 10 times in his first year of life. He hated sitting still for books, I didn't push the issue. But now he loves them and has very strong opinions about which ones I should read to him.

Another big hit at our house is the new trampoline. So. Much. Fun. The kids love it (mostly Rowan as Tate kind of just runs around and falls down) and the parents love it, too. We even snuck out and jumped on it tonight after we put the kids to bed. Silly, I know, but we had fun. I can't get enough of this warmer weather and want to spend every moment outside!

Can WE come over and jump after the kids go to bed? Sounds fun . . .

Steph, you can come over anytime. With or without kids.
