Have I told you

This baby loves to hang from trees. She likes to hang from anything really. She has turned 15 months old and with that she has learned the word no which really is "na". She says it all the time. I am not a big fan of this and have no idea how to stop her saying it. I think I like the jibberish much better. We went to the doctor yesterday for her check-up, she was 19lbs 8 oz. She is still a little bean. People think that it is so strange when they see her walking b/c she is so little but then I tell them how old she is and it is no longer so strange. She loves to walk with her hands behind her back and talk to herself. She loves being chased and playing hide and seek. She has a slight obsession with shoes which is to be expected, have you seen my closet? She will bring Worth and me our shoes, and they are usually the matching pair. I think it means she is a genius. She loves to sit in things, laps, chairs, car seats that are on the floor, cars, anything. I think it makes her feel like a big girl. You should see her back up when she is about to sit. I feel like we need the moving truck back up beep when she is doing that, beeep....beeep, it takes her so long to back up! She loves warm towels just out of the dryer, but really who doesn't? She knows where her feet are and she likes to tickle them herself even though she does not laugh near as hard as when we do it to her. She continues to be the light of our life. She brings us joy all the time even when she is throwing her 1st extended temper tantrum (that was yesterday, not sure what to do about that either). We love this little baby, all 15 months and 19pounds of her!


















We are getting rain. I can't tell you the last time we had a full day of rain. It is almost strange to hear the rain hitting the roof and to wake up to that sweet sound. It feels refreshing and renewing. I doubt this rain will end any droughts or bring any water tables up a significant amount, but for today it brings us much joy!

See you have a great answer for what your baby is doing! (I think you know what I'm refering to)
This post should have been called Little BellaRose Petals!
I know that this worries you, but I am kind of interested in seeing a tantrum I just can't picture her doing that!

Julie said...

Wow, BellaRose has a strong grip! I would love to see her hanging from that tree in person. I don't think many kids that age can do that.....wait, hasn't she been able to hang like that for a while now (I vaguely remember a former post, but was it yours?) Anyhow, I am impressed.

I love the picture of her peering around the corner.

she is such a little spirit! i love it! i am embarrassed to say my 9 month old is 21 lb and 4 oz! xo

KatieKate said...

Yeah, we're rockin' 22 pounds at 21 months, so I understand. What I DON'T understad is how these kiddos can hang from so many things! It's hilarious... and a little scary.

LisserCoates said...

oh my word! That picture of BellaRose peeping around the corner just melts my heart. That is SO her. She is such a sweet little thing, what is it 20lbs and you can turn the car seat around??

Dan, Annie, Will and Mocha said...

Wow, she can hang amazingly, what a strong little bean.
She is the cutest little thing, I love the way she talks about everything and yells things out like a Grant already (that is meant endearingly).
You two are doing a great job raising such an awesome little one.

melissa, I am a bad momma and have had her seat turned around since she turned 1. life is so much better when it is forward facing!

Adam and Annie said...

I can't believe how much hair she has! She is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Adam and I were enlarging the pictures and just laughing!

Courtney said...

Oh my.. she is too cute!

Kristin said...

Did she grow all that hair overnight? It is getting so long and pretty! I will email you so we can talk about meeting up in the OBX. I really want to see you guys and meet BellaRose. :)
