To the Moon and Back

Addison turned 15 months old today. We celebrated with a couple of shots at the doctor's office :( She is 31 inches tall (50-75%) and 22lbs 5 oz (50%).

This month she has discovered her sweet tooth. She was in heaven over the holidays with the Christmas cookies and candy around the house. Zack still doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, so this is new to me. She has also been introduced to raisins, craisins and fruit snacks, some of her favorite non-chocolate snacks.

She is also perfecting the art of climbing. The second you turn your back on her she is either on top of the kitchen table or on top of Zack's train table. She always stands on top and dances, stomps her feet, which makes it easy to figure out that she is doing something wrong. I have been home with the kids for the past five days and she has worn me out.

She is getting better about biting me, but when she does go to bite she makes a growling/chomping sound first. It is pretty funny and also gives me warning to pull away. It is hard to keep a straight face and discipline. I wish I could get it on tape.

Yesterday she started doing what we call butt slams. She jumps up and lands in the sitting position on her butt. Zack was always doing them when he was younger. I have no idea how they figure out that it would be a fun thing to do.

She has also just recently started getting into books. Before I would try to read to her and she would have little to no interest. Now she brings us books to read, sits through at least half the book, and requests books before bedtime.

She is slowing adding words to her vocabulary and learning new signs. The latest signs are dog and change the diaper.

Here are a couple pictures of my wild animal jumping on the couch this morning.
