15 month stats!

My little boo face is 15 months!! We had his check up the other day and he's growing nicely.  

Weight: 26lbs 8oz  
Height: 33" (2ft 9in)

When did he turn into such a little boy??

Little dude has 8 teeth, 2 of his top molars have just recently cut through. It's been a hard week for him, but tylenol and orajel seems to help. Oh and he'll brush his own teeth, kinda.

He'll eat pretty much anything. Although, he is getting a little bit pickier. He's been known to spit out veggies from time to time, but I just keep shoving them in his mouth and eventually he'll eat them. Ha ha. He especially loves yogart & goldfish crackers. :) He still takes a bottle before bedtime and when he wakes up... I've thought about weaning him but I decided I'm not in a huge hurry.

He still sleeps only 9ish hours at night, and still wakes up around 6am (or earlier, eeek)! He takes 2 naps a day. One from 9-11am and the second from 3-5pm.

What he wears:
18-24 month pants and 18 month shirts.
Size 4 shoes
Size 5 diapers
2T sized hats (this kid has a big head!) Though, he really won't leave hats on, but we're working on it!

Bennett is quite the character lately. He LOVES be chased and playing hide and go seek. He laughs and giggles constantly, and he thinks he's pretty much the bomb. He spits, waves, claps, points with his thumb (still!) and dances whenever he hears music and this kid has some serious moves, as seen in this post.

Bennett doesn't sit still for long, he's kind of a busy body... but he'll hold still (at least for a little while) for his favorite movie, Toy Story 3!! He will also sometimes watch Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse, Handy Manny, and Jake & the Neverland Pirates.

Lately, he has been really into throwing things away. I'm not sure that he understands those things are "trash"... I just catch him walking things over to the garbage and tossin' them. This is NO good. I've had to fish things out of the garbage so many times... it's crazy.

This child can throw a tantrum like no other. Full on whiny, throwing himself on the ground, and kicking his legs. The good news is that he is easily distracted and he gets over it pretty quickly.

How precious! They really do grow up quickly! Enjoy making memories. Happy day!

Olivia Grace said...

He is adorable! How can you resist those big blue eyes, even during a temper tantrum!

Such a cutie, Mandy. :) I loved the info you shared, like what sizes of clothes and diapers he's wearing. That's something I never thought to keep track of, but it's a good idea. (Krew is still in 12 month shirts, 12 month pants, size 3 diapers, and size 3 shoes...quite the difference from your little man, haha. I kinda wish he'd grow a little so he'd catch up with all of his slightly-older girlfriends. ;) )

OH he is such a cutie! We have a little one who throws away everything too! It's funny how that keeps them pretty entertained! :)

Great stats! Sounds like he's gonna be tall like his Dad, huh? He's the same size as my almost 2.5 year old!

aw, I love these updates! I should do some :) my daughter got so picky with food too. She used to love everything now it's impossible to feed her! ha

Kelly said...

Our boys are so similar except mine is a month younger and weighs a bit more ;). Carter loves throwing things away and it drives me crazy because sometimes I don't see him do it and think things have gone missing. Such a cute post!

Summer said...

So cute! Parker throws some epic tantrums too! It's sad and funny at the same time. :)

p.s. you just reminded me that I have to make P's 15 month appointment! Thanks!

Enjoy this time! When I look back over the last few years of Bugsy's life (now 3), 1 was the funnest year by far. Now we are in the horrible three's and it is quite the challenge.

He doesn't look like he has a big head. Jackson has a 90th percentile head and had a hard time sitting up... any slight movement and he'd topple over.

Jess said...

Great pictures, he's so handsome! Happy 15 months, Bennett!

What a big dude! He wears bigger everything than Griffin except shoes (my kids have monster feet). This is the age when their personalities really come out - fun but challenging (hello, tantrums!).
