15 Month Update

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

On March 19, Ethan turned 15 months old.

He is now 33.5 inches tall and weighs 24lb 3oz.  That puts him in the 95th percentile for height and 40th for weight.  His head was in the 90th percentile.

At 15 months he is full of energy and personality.  He loves to be outside.  Sticks are by far the best thing ever created.  He often carries 5 or 6 of them around at a time, and they can become brooms, power tools, or even trains at a moments notice.  He has also discovered playing in water and LOVES splash parks and pools.  Even a bath can be tons of splashing fun.  He also loves to climb.  He likes to climb on playgrounds (and go down slides) and also on furniture.  Lately he has been climbing over the couch, and jumping down behind it.  Mom is trying her best to put an end to this behavior, but is having little success.  On a related note, “stuck, help!”  is one of his favorite phrases.

Like his brother, Ethan is a good talker.  He can say all sorts of words and short phrases.  Some of his other favorites lately are “Mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy . . . ” and “hold me hold me hold me . . . ”  He general lets you know what he wants.  Unlike his brother he is loud.  He likes to yell and will talk to people he doesn’t know.

Given his energy, activity level, and intensity we have started lovingly comparing him to a Tasmanian Devil!
