Molly: 15 Months

I can't believe we are already at another milestone month (according to the doc visits). It has been 3 months since she turned 1 and it has gone by SO fast.

Since she turned ONE I decided to slow the updates down to every 3 months corresponding with her check-up visits. While a lot is changing from day to day the big stuff is better told every few months.

The past 3 months were a whirlwind. Going from her birthday, to the busy holiday season and then starting a new year there has been a lot going on (and my blog is suffering from that, but more on that later). Homegirl is nonstop. While she is awake she doesn't stay still for more than 30 seconds at a time. She is picking up new skills and venturing into new tasks all the time. Its exhausting to attempt to keep up. But we are having fun trying!

Everyday is a new adventure and its so fun to watch the world through her curious and inquisitive eyes. She has quite the personality and we can see our own personality traits starting to come out in her. She loves to be outside playing. Whether it be running around in circles, throwing the ball or climbing, if she is outside she is happy. We love her outdoor spirit and we will always encourage her to play outside in the world rather than sitting in front of a tv or video game. I think she will be just fine with that.

A few things have gotten harder these last few months. The biggest is going to a restaurant. Eating out is a nightmare. She hates highchairs and just wants to stand up in them. Its really hard to eat a meal out these days but we keep trying, knowing that eventually she won't be so difficult.

But with the hard parts come the amazing parts. While parenthood doesn't get any easier it definitely gets more rewarding!

We are so lucky to have such an amazing daughter in our lives. Molly, we never knew how much we could love someone until you. xoxo

Loves to eat. If we left food out all the time she would eat all. the. time. She has definitely gotten pickier these last few months. Veggies are no longer a favorite and usually end up on the floor. Her favorites are avocado, cheese, eggs, tomatoes, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, hot dogs and goldfish.

We are in a weird sleeping pattern right now. She has been getting up a lot earlier in the morning (6:45am!) and has been fussy during the nightime. She is getting some molars and its definitely affecting her. We are also in transition from 2 naps to 1 so its a guess how as to how long and when she is going to nap everyday.

7 teeth and counting! 2 bottom, 4 top and 1 1/2 top molars.
