15 Month Update

...Even though he's already older than 16 months.  Oh well.  I have tried to keep this blog as a baby book of sorts so that I can go back and remember what he was doing at certain points.  Lately I've been kind of sucking at that.  It has nothing to do with the fact that he hasn't been doing anything cool...because he's doing tons of awesome stuff.  It's just that life with a toddler gets BEYOND busy.   Anyway, enough with the excuses.
Okiedokie, so we went to the doctor a few weeks ago and here's what he said:
Weight: 26 lbs (75th percentile)
Height: 33.5 inches (90th percentile)
Head circumference was 75th as well, not sure on the measurement.
Has 12 teeth (4 top front, 4 bottom front, and all 4 1st molars)

We counted and Greyson knows 20+ words, which the Dr. said was developmentally in the 18-24 month range, so we were happy.  Same thing with his gross and fine motor (can walk backwards and sideways, stacks 5 blocks, screws and unscrews lids, throws balls, etc.)  He also knows how to kick, hit, scream, spit, and arch his back in a fierce tantrum.  We are so proud!

I haven't yet actually written down all the words he says, so I'm going to do that here.  Please don't feel like you have to read through them, I just want to have them to look back on.  :)  As of today (16 months old) he can appropriately say
1. mama
2. dada
3. java
4. ball
5. dog
6. baba (drink)
7. snack
8. nana (banana or Nana)
9. night-night
10. duck
11. bath
12. milk
13. uh-oh
14. "side" (outside)
15. papa
16. hi
17. bye-bye
18. "pu"  (computer)
19. yeah
20. wow
21. thank you
22. welcome (you're welcome)
23. please
24. book
25. baby
26. cat (sometimes)
27. car (sometimes)
28. shoe
29. sock
30. down
31. up
32. door
33. off
34. on
35. hot
36. hat

We both have been so overwhelmed lately with how much he is looking like a little boy and less and less like our baby.  Moving into toddler-dom has (so far) been chock full of fun, energy, exhaustion, learning, frustration, fears, and so much more.  He is changing every day and every day we fall more and more in love with his growing personality.  We are so blessed and so thankful!
