Isabelle's 15 month appointment

at 16 months old... don't judge!  This Mama is having a hard time keeping all the appointments straight.

Well... we were a month late for this appointment but we made it in before she got kicked out of daycare.  So all is well!

*Izzy is weighing in at 20 lbs 8.5ozs, 30 3/4 in. tall and head size 43 cm. (16 month stats).  On the DS charts that breaks down to approx 80% in height and 50% in weight.  So far she takes after her brothers in the height and weight department.   
*She is eating everything we are and loves politely throwing her food onto the floor.  Politely = throwing each individual piece on the floor and waiting for a reaction after each piece hits the floor.  How nice of her!  We are also beginning to work on table manners.  As you can see... we have a long way to go!

*Her doctor is very impressed with her muscle tone which we always love to hear!
*She finally has 2 teeth coming in.  Both are her molars on the top.  Yep, surprised her doctor as well.  The molars are not usually the first teeth to arrive but Isabelle plays her own way.
*She is scooting all over the place and nothing is off limits.  She will empty every bag and pull out every toy in the blink of an eye.  It is also time for us to invest in a baby gate for the stairs.  Sister has discovered the hallway and she is out of here!

Even though Isabelle prefers scooting as her main form of transportation, we are still working on crawling.  This past therapy session she stayed in a 4 point crawl for approximately 6 minutes while grabbing for objects and turning pages in her book (this improves balance).  Her longest time ever!  We are also working on Isabelle pulling up to a knee position to grab toys off our ottoman.  While this comes natural for most babies, Isabelle has to work long and hard to master these techniques.  It will take some time, but she will do it. 
Isabelle loves snuggling with her brother early in the mornings.  Normally he loves snuggling as well but this particular morning... he just wanted to play his DS.  A sweet moment quickly ended.
Isabelle goes back to the doctor at the end of this month for her 2nd flu shot and then returns again for her 18 month shots. 
Izzy- I promise to stay on top of the shot appointments next time so they are spread out a little more.
