15 months

I'm overdue on this post and starting to get confused about what happened last month vs. this month so (full disclosure) this is likely not an entirely accurate reflection of month 15. Elden has really started to pick up words. He was a bit of a late bloomer in that department (he says "mm" with a cute little inflection for just about everything) but now that he's starting to grasp it things are moving along. He has said all of the following at least four times: shoes, cheese, bye, duck, boo, baby, ma, da, and bath. When prompted, he can point out his belly, bellybutton, booty, nose, ears, foot, leg, and toes. Elden knows many things as well--for example, when you get his shoes he knows to sit down and hold up his foot for you. He is somewhere in the 80th percentile for weight and 94th for height. Elden's sleep has regressed quite a bit this past month and we aren't sure whether he's perhaps cutting his 2-year molars (we hope that's it) but it's been pretty rough on all of us. Another notable is the removal of the bottle. We are going cold turkey and I'd say his daily milk intake is about an ounce which worries me but his pediatrician says will be fine since it should be temporary. The only food Elden doesn't like is hard boiled egg but he devours mostly everything else. I think my favorite part about this age is he is more cuddly and even fell asleep in my arms for the first time since he was probably 9 months old the other day. I could definitely get used to that...
