Jackson's 15 Month Update

My little Fun Size Brandon turned 15 months old yesterday and we're celebrating today with MMR vaccines (poor baby..) and lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant! This has been such a fun month for Jax and I couldn't be more amazed with how smart, sweet, and funny he is. He truly is blessing and I pray over him every night after he falls asleep and thank God for giving us our precious boy. 

Here's what we've been up to this month:

Weight: 19 lbs 7.5 oz.

Length: 30.5 inches

Nicknames: Jax, Bubs, Jax Lee San, Goober

Wearing: 12 & 18 month clothes (18 month shirts fit pretty well but the pants are still way too long); Size 3 diapers

Sleep: Pretty much the same as last month -- he'll sleep 3-4 hour stretches before waking us up to be reassured and nursed. We usually bring him into bed with us at around 6 and he'll sleep another couple of hours. He only nurses now before nap and bed so we're definitely making progress but I can't see him giving that up anytime soon.

Jax likes: Bella, climbing on anything & everything, commercials, Pixar movies, playing outside, when there are other kids to chase around at the park, helping mommy & daddy, putting things away, Elmo, MOPS, snacks, dancing, opening & closing things, hide & seek, Costco, sweets, going on walks, singing songs with mommy, dipping his food, and reading.

Jax dislikes: Having clothes pulled over his head, when he can't get something to work right away, being told "no", having to leave the park, being in the car for too long, laying down for diaper changes

Food: It seems like he's getting to be a little less picky (emphasis on little) but he's now flat out refusing chicken which doesn't fly in our home (mamma likes her chicken)! Favorites are Greek yogurt, crackers of any kind, peanut butter, Belvita biscuits, cheese, green & black beans, veggie burgers, red meats, fish, mac & cheese, and sugar of any kind. 

Teeth: 4 on top; 4 on bottom

Happenings: Dinner w/some of the Wernsman clan; staying with Uncle Joey & Great Aunt Brigette when mommy & daddy went to a play; starting to decorate his "big boy" room; staying with Grammy & Grandpa when mommy & daddy went to KC for a night (train show and dinner with Great Aunt Nancy & Uncle Rolf); 6th haircut; lots of park, library, & MOPS play dates; Aunt Jen's baby shower; 2nd St. Patrick's Day; starting to prep the garden for spring; and lunch with some of the Kasten clan. 

St. Patrick's Day 2014 & 2015
~Jackson is seriously the smartest toddler ever (says the completely unbiased mother) and can go find things you ask for and bring them to you, "copies" people (ex: I'll say "Jax, Jax, Jax!" and he'll reply with "Ba Ba Ba!" -- so basically he'll "say" something the number of times you say it), holds up one finger when you ask how old he is, and loves to talk (I = Hi; Lela = Bella; Mama & Dada; Mo Mo = Elmo.. I'm not too sure what the other things he says mean, ha). He's still not quite walking but I can tell it's coming -- he's an old pro at grabbing onto things and walking but he seems to prefer crawling because he can get from Point A to Point B even faster (Brandon's sister said our nephew was the same way and wouldn't walk without holding onto something until he was around Jax's age)!

~Jax is all about helping with everything now (pictured is him "helping" me push his stroller home from the park) -- he hands me the clean silverware out of the dishwasher, dusts/wipes off things, and helps me load the dryer. Mundane chores now take 10x as long to do but my heart also grows 10x its normal size when I see the look of pride in my helpful toddlers eyes!

~This kid is so stinking sweet and will pat you on the back while you're holding him, is always giving hugs & kisses, and will fold his hands to pray before meals and at church! His sweetness makes up for all the times he's a huge stinker and pulls the cats tail after we tell him not to..

^^ALL BOY! If it involves getting messy in any way (or scaring his mommy half-to-death by doing something daring), he's in! I wouldn't have it any other way :)
