15 Months!

It seems like just yesterday that I was writing about Faith turning 14 months, here she is 15 months already!  And, here I am, behind in blogging. Again.  Never fear though, school is right around the corner and I am planning a HUGE party  ready for it. These long, dogs days of summer at home with 6 children are just begging to drive me insane  be over and done with.  I need some "quiet" time.

I may be weird, but I don't mind AT ALL getting up at the crack of dawn to pack lunches and lay out school uniforms.     I don't mind making breakfast, finding lost shoes or brushing long locks of blond hair.  Yes, it's hectic, loud and chaotic BUT it only lasts an hour or so and then I get to deposit my children safely into the hands of some very special souls.  Teachers!     I love those blessed souls.

Anyway...only 19 days of summer vacation left, but who's counting?

Okay, here goes :  Faith, what are you up to these days?

* You can still fit into a 6-9 month size in clothes, though I have been putting you in a 12 month size too.

* You are in a size 2.5 shoe without your SMO's and a size 3 with them on.

* You are climbing up stairs like a's getting back down them that is the problem.

* You are cruising along everything--the couch, coffee table, walls...

* You are taking some fledgling steps while holding onto my finger.

* You are saying more and more words and trying to imitate us.

* You are finally clapping!

* Still no teeth :)

You are a joy, as always!  I am enjoying every minute with you...I love you sweetheart!

We'll be going to the pediatrician next week for Faith's 15 month well baby visit, so I will have updated stats then.   I'm guessing she is roughly 17lbs and maybe 28 inches.   Such a peanut!


  1. She is a peanut! We have Claire's 6 month appt next week and I think she'll be close to 13lbs.

  2. Faith is doing so awesome! I am so impressed with her walking!

  3. Yeah, peanut she is...she was about 13lbs at 6 months, but has not gained a heck of a lot since then!

  4. I just love coming here to see Faith- she looks so much like my Lily....who is only 10 lbs 7 oz. at 6 months! That's okay, we love "little":) Thanks for sharing what she's doing- gives me things to look forward to!

  5. Steph, I don't know if you remember but Halee was only 16 lbs at a year. We always called her a peanut too. She is 14 now and doesn't even weigh a 100. Once a peanut, always a peanut.

  6. Your daughter is beautiful!!! :)
