(Almost!) 15 Months!

It's hard to believe Connor and Merasia will be 15 months old in a couple of days. It just never seems possible that they are getting so much older with each passing month.
Connor just recently started crawling. Weird. We really thought he would skip right over crawling and go straight to walking, since he showed no interest in trying to crawl beforehand, but we were wrong. In the last few weeks, he started crawling and has gotten quite good at it actually. ;-) He still stands up and cruises around people and furniture, and will take itty bitty little steps if you hold his hands. He could probably walk on his own but he's too afraid to let go and go for it still. All in due time! I think he will definitely be walking within this month. He weighs 2o-21 lbs., which is around what he was last month, but the bout with diarrhea we recently had impacted their weight a little bit. He is 31 inches tall and has gotten sooo much more hair! I was looking at old baby pics the other day and cannot believe how much hair he has now, compared to barely anything back at 6 months. He says "mama," "dada," "bop bop," "good girl," (LOL), "kitty," "uh oh," "ya," "oh," "hi," "hey," and a few others that I can't think of off the top of my head. :-) He's just so darn cute, I can't stand it!! :-)

Merasia is running all over the place! Literally, running. She says all of the same words as her brother, and some extra babbles that sound like Chinese but we can't quite understand what she is saying or what she means by them, but they're cute. :-) She loves to wave at anyone and everyone, and her biggest, newest accomplishment is climbing. She climbs on the couch, the sofa, daddy's recliner, the bed, any chair she can get to, and even stairs. Thankfully, there are no stairs inside our apartment, but at our friend's house a few days ago, she climbed the stairs almost all the way to the top, but she got halfway and decided she was ready to come back down. She gets mad and throws her signature temper tantrum if you don't let her climb on stuff. At first it worried me, in case she fell off the couch or some other object, but I don't really need to worry about that. As soon as she is on the couch or in a chair, she is happy as a clam sitting there, giggling, laughing, playing with her brother, and she will sit there for hours. Somehow she gets down when she is ready, but I haven't actually caught her doing that so I'm not quite sure how she does that for sure, but I'll see it sometime, I'm sure. ;-) She has fallen off the sofa three times in one night, but she cried for a second, and then was over it and back to climbing back on the sofa. I keep some pillows on the floor next to the couch and sofa so if she does fall, she has a softer landing. :-) And she does pull ups. She grabs the top of the pack and play on the outside, and pulls herself up the side of it. She doesn't do it to climb into the pack and play, she just does pull ups on the side of it...exercise I guess. (LOL) It's actually quite impressive for a 15 month old. She has a big personality and isn't afraid to show it, and I love that about her.
