Eliot's 15 Month Update

 

 
General/milestones
I don't think there have been many big changes this month. You have learnt how to say 'ta' when we give you something but you only say it with us prompting you. You still babble away and point and grunt at things.
Your love for books continues to grow and you now bring them over and want to sit on our laps to read the story. You also still like putting the books on the sofa and flicking through the pages yourself.
We have been enjoying a little bit of sensory/messy play, you like playing with cornflour and prod it, eat it and squish it. It keeps you busy for a good ten minutes. Mummy needs to buy some different coloured food colourings to make it a bit more exciting! Playing with dry pasta has also been something that you have enjoyed.
At the park you have become faster getting around the climbing frame but what you really love to do is walk up and down the little hill of decked pathway and listen to your footsteps.
I suppose something that has really changed is you will sit down to watch Peppa Pig on the TV for a bit longer and will watch a few episodes on my ipad when I'm busy tidying. Before you wouldn't really watch it.
Really you just want to be on you feet exploring and investigating things, you are always looking for mischief!
Enjoying the cornflour
 

Feeding
This month you have been better with your food but can still be fussy at times. I find you might like a few mouthfuls of something then you'd rather come back to it later.


Weight
Finally we have got your 8-12 month check over and done with! Mummy found out that she should have booked your next set of immunisations so you are overdue, although they are scheduled for today! You were weighed and are now just over two stone! You're on the 98th percentile for weight and almost on the 98th percentile for your height, so you're just about in proportion.
 
Clothes
12-18 month clothes sill fit you, however you are wearing some 18-24 month clothes.
 

Sleeping
You are still continuing to sleep through from about 7.30pm-8pm until between 7am-8am. There have been the odd couple of nights when you have woken up but you went back to sleep very quickly.
 
Your Likes/Dislikes
Your like and dislikes are pretty much the same as last month

  • You don't like having a poopy nappy changed and will run away
  • You like reading/looking at books
  • You like to be sung to
  • You have become more interested in Peppa Pig
  • You adore being mobile, to get around independently is really your most favourite thing
  • You are  still obsessed with the washing machine, still particularly at Nana & Grandads
  • You love the cats and stroke (grab) Mimi, Coco runs if you enter the same room
  • You still enjoy nursery rhymes
  • You love playing with balls, rolling, kicking or throwing them
  • You don't like the noise from hand dryers in public toilets
  • You continue to battle when having your nappy changed, it normally takes two of us
