Happy 15 Months Kellan

There is so much less pressure doing 3 month posts instead of monthly. 

I don't care what anyone says...15 months old still makes you my BABY!
You are the happiest baby.
You have 8 teeth now.  4 on top right in the front and then your two front teeth and two molars!  You have the best time trying out new foods. 
You have had a few ear infections the past couple of months but you never make a peep!  I only knew you had them because when you woke up in the morning you had gunk on your eye. 
You are walking like crazy!  Daddy took you to the park with some other Dad's and babies this evening and when I stopped by to say "hi" I was so surprised at how well you were getting around.   You almost hate to be held now because you want to be on the move 24/7. 
You are still crazy about Aidan.  He is so patient with you and loves to share his toys.  You two go in to his room and play quietly for hours.  I have to check on you to make sure something hasn't happened.  But there you guys are, waist deep in a bin of Lego's.  Aidan creating ships and robots and whatever else he makes with those things and you taking fist fulls and tossing them on the floor.  It keeps you happy.
You said "Mama" and "Dada" pretty clearly but you actually look at Daddy and say "Dada".   It's basically the cutest thing ever.  He is your favorite.  If I'm holding you and Daddy walks by, you all buy leap out of my arms. 
I tried to teach you baby sign language like I did with Aidan but you basically said you didn't have time for that and just whined until I gave you what you wanted.  You are pretty vocal so it all works out. 
You are getting better about your sippy cup.  It's not your favorite but you will take it.  You also don't ever want to drink anything but milk.  We've tried just about everything but there is no sign of you giving that up several times a day.

Your little personality is coming out so much.  If Grandpa hadn't already gifted Aidan with the nickname "Hap" (short for Happy), you would definitely get it.  You love to talk to people but you are shy at the same time.  If someone new comes up to see you,  you rest your head on my shoulder with the biggest smile.  It's perfect.
You play Peek A Boo with us all the time now.  You pull your blanket up over your head, wait a few seconds and the pull the blanket down with the biggest toothy smile.

You had your first hair cut!  You were so good.  Aidan sat in the chair next to you and had his hair cut at the same time.  I think you were so excited to be doing the same thing as him.  

You love your uncles.  Uncle Bobby came by one day last week and I let him wake you up and get your out of your crib.  You looked at him funny for a second and then went CRAZY.   You were so excited to see him.  You are the same way with Jordan. 

You are crazy about Nana and Grandpa too.  Anytime we are at their house, you whine until I put you down and then you walk right over to Grandpa and put your hands up for him to hold you.  He kisses you on the side of your neck under your chin and you giggle so hard.  If he sits down, Aidan crawls right up next to him and you sit on his lap. When you see Nana you get the biggest smile.  She feeds you and feeds you and feeds you so she is one of your favorites.  I think she's one of the only people you actually kiss.  Daddy and I always comment on how lucky you and Aidan are to have such wonderful Grandparents in them.  They love you so much!

We are still so smitten with you every day.  Daddy, Aidan and I comment about how perfect you have been for our little family.  God knew what he was doing.   You tear apart everything in this house and we just laugh at how cute you are.  Throwing toys over your shoulder and destroying everything in your path and it just makes us love you more and more everyday. 

Happy 15 Months baby boy!

Reuniting with Aidan after you two had been apart for the day.
Mommy smooching you.  This was followed by tears because I like to smother you.
A rare moment where you sat still.

Walking in the park. 

This was when you walked right up to Aidan and threw yourself in his arms. You love your brother.
Testing our your new Freshly Picked moccasins. 

Goldfish crackers for a snack in the car.  It would be too much to ask you to just eat the fish.  You have to play with all your food. 

So curious.

Swing! You aren't a huge fan. 
Checking on your big brother when he wasn't feeling well.  It was crazy how in tune you were to him not feeling well and how concerned you were.  You wouldn't leave him alone.

Playing on Aidan's floor before he gets home from school. 

Same.  Just an even cuter picture. 
French fry eating.

Car seat snuggles.  Everything you do is just so sweet, I take pictures of the most mundane things!
Ok, So not always happy...


Another very rare moment sitting still watching cartoons with your big brother.  This never happens.  We didn't think you even knew about the TV. 

Last picture...we watch you sleep at night.  We can't help it.
