Fifteen Months

September 10, 2012

Audrey:  19 lbs, 5 oz.  30.5 inches

Theresa:  20 lbs, 5 oz.  29.5 inches

Jamie:  20 lbs, 1 oz.  30 inches

All following well along their growth curves!

Riding in Grandpa’s wagon

Audrey walked across the carpet by herself on Sept. 6 (last Thursday)!  She continues to take hesitant steps a few times a day.  Jamie rarely crawls now, and has been seen attempting to run.

They are all good at waving now.  Audrey waves with her hand pointed straight out, fingers bending down toward the floor and straight again.  Theresa does the open-close-fist wave.  Jamie’s whole arm wiggles.

Audrey’s verbal communication is growing.  If asked a question, she often responds with a rapid-fire “yeah-yeah-yeah”–I think she hears the questioning tone and is repeating adults’ tendency to say “yeah” after asking babies a question.  She also imitates our tonal pattern for something nifty:  “ooo-OOO-ooh.”

Theresa is really good at giving people things.  She likes handing me or Alan a toy, or book, or piece of food, or whatever.  Usually the game is that we say and sign “Thank you!” and hand it back to her.

Jamie’s new favorite pastime is to find a book he wants read and walk toward you with the book in his outstretched hand.  When handing you the book, he also uses the questioning tone, “Eh?”  (He does have Canadian heritage.)

At the Tri Turtle Tri finish line

We are all proud of Daddy for completing his triathlon of 2012!  We were a little late and missed his swim and first transition (why do babies only sleep in past all reasonable expectations when we have a designated time to be somewhere?), but cheered for the end of his bike race and the run finish.
