Little Peanut

So, Matt and I took Mariah to the doctor yesterday for her 15 month check up. The little stinker only gained 1 oz over the last 3 months. She went from 18 lbs 6 oz to 18 lbs 7 oz; however, she grew 2 inches and is now 31 inches long. That puts her at the 2nd percentile for weight and 64th for height. I am not sure if she knows who her parents are, but I don't think either of us were ever at the 64th percentile for height :) It is crazy to think that over the last 15 months she has gained 13.5 lbs and grown 12 inches!!!

She has also gotten to be quite the girly girl lately. She has a couple of purses that she puts on her arm and carries around as she walks around the house. She has to hold her arm up by her face so that she makes sure to not drop the purses. Mariah also loves to carry her chapstick around and wear clicky, girly shoes. (She's also infatuated with carrying around wet wipes, as an odd aside)

In addition to acting quite girly, Mariah's personality is showing through quite a bit lately. She loves to laugh, chase Nala, and raise her eyebrows when something seems odd to her. Thankfully, instead of destroying everything 24/7, she's starting to catch on and pick up after herself. It's pretty cute when she tries to put the towel back on the rack or put her tub toys away; they can't be out of place. I can't imagine where that comes from...couldn't be either of her parents.

We love watching her grow and learn everyday and could not ask for a better daughter.

What a little string bean!!!

I love it when their little personalities start to shine through. I can just imagine her raising her little eye brows. :)

Thanks for the recommendation on trying Organic milk. I'm trying that this week so we'll see how it goes!
