15 months

Olivia is 15 months!  I can't believe it!  I have to say, 15 months is my favorite age yet.  I think I say that every other month but she is so fun right now.  She can (kind of) tell us what she wants by pointing and using the sign for "more" that Jason taught her.  She also gives hugs, kisses, high-fives, and snuggles all day long. Her babysitter tells me almost daily how sweet & how good of a baby Olivia is and I have to agree.

At her 15-month checkup yesterday, she weighed 25 pounds 14 ounces putting her in the 94th percentile for height and weight.  She is a very healthy girl!  Our normal doctor, Dr. Brink, is out for a family emergency so the clinic had a doctor from another location filling in.  Olivia & I weren't huge fans of her or her nurse and there were lots of tears from Olivia, but once they left the room she was all better!  Here is my happy girl once we got home from the doctor:
Happy to be done with shots and playing in the garage!
Some of Olivia's favorite things at 15 months:
-Her blankie
-Playing outside
-Giving high-fives
-Yogurt melts
-Bananas & strawberries
-Kissing her grandparents on the iPad
-Playing with her baby
-Bath time
-Daniel Tiger
-Putting on her pajamas

Olivia's dislikes at 15 months:
-Diaper changes (especially after a bath for some reason) & getting dressed in the morning
-Coming in from outside
-Sitting in the car when it isn't moving
-Sitting in her stroller for more than 30 minutes
-Sloppy Joes

We have so much fun with our sweet girl!  I know everyone thinks their baby is the sweetest but Jason and I talk almost every night about how she is the cutest thing we have ever seen.  We went to visit our friends Christine & Jeff and their new baby, Aston, last night and Olivia was not a happy girl when Mommy fed Aston a bottle.  I don't think she is ready for a sibling quite yet!  

Big day - Olivia's first ponytail!  Now if we could just grow some hair on top.....
