15 months old!!!

I can not believe my little sweetie is 15 months old!!!  I can honestly say these have been the best 15 months of my life.  Kenadee is my little buddy.  She is always following me around, bringing me books and toys to play with, or copying what I do.  She is at such a fun age!  I can just see the understanding in her face. 

-She can follow simple tasks like, "Please go get your shoes, or would you bring me your toy or book."  When I ask her if she wants to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner she will walk to the pantry and grab at the door because that's where the food and her highchair are.

-Kenadee has discovered how to throw a ball and loves to throw the ball to her dogs.  She giggles when they run after it.  I have to remind her to be careful because sometimes she throws at the dogs and I'm sure they don't appreciate it very much.  She generally does well when you tell her to be soft, but she does need to be reminded from time to time.

-She loves her little Mickey Mouse car and climbs on and off of it by herself.  The other day I caught her trying to stand on it so she could climb onto the entertainment center!!!  Naughty stink!!

-She still loves to read books but she wants to be the one turning the pages!  If I try to do it most of the time she will get upset and take the book.

-She has learned how to get down from the couch or our bed by herself.  She gets a big smile on her face every time she does it.

-Kenadee loves to "help" with just about anything I am trying to do.  Needless to say this has made packing very interesting and I try to do most things while Dru is home or she is napping.

-Kenadee still takes 1 good nap during the day and sleeps 10 to 12 hours at night.  She won't sleep without her teddy bear and her stuffed pig.

-Kenadee has started saying many more words.  She now says: pig, ted (teddy bear), mom, dad, yeah, this, that, what, me, daw (dog), shoes, and she will randomly repeat words that Dru and I say.  The other day she tried to say breakfast and it was pretty cute! 

-She says "Me" when she wants something.  She will then point at the object and repeat "Me" until you give it to her.  If I don't want her to have something she will give me a kiss and start the whole process again.

-She gives the best kisses and hugs!

-Kenadee gets her feelings hurt when you tell her no.

-She talks the entire time she is in the car.  She just keeps going like the Energizer bunny and it is hard to hold a conversation if someone else is with us.

-After she gets out of the bath tub (which she still LOVES!!!)  she will grab the q-tips and pretend she is cleaning her ears.

-Kenadee loves to play peek-a-boo and to put things on her head as a hat.  She likes to put "hats" on other people and animals too.  The other day she put her beads around Marley, and a bracelet on her ear.  Once she was done she stood back and laughed. 

-Little Miss LOVES to get into my kitchen cupboards and her 2 new favorite toys are the cheese grater and flour sifter.  She is constantly pulling those out and dragging them all over the house (don't worry I wash them after she plays with them).

-Kenadee loves to be around kids her age, especially her cousin Averie.  She gets so excited and will just follow her around and laugh at what she is doing whether it's funny or not.

-Kenadee loves to smile and laugh!  She is such a happy girl most of the time, though she does throw the occasional tantrum.

-Baby girl now has 8 teeth.  She has popped 5 in the last 2 months and surprisingly hasn't been very grumpy.

At her 15 month checkup her stats were:
Weight: 25 lbs. 9 oz.  (93rd %)
Height: 32 1/2 in.  (97th %)
She is growing perfectly and we love our little Stinker more each day!!!!!

Kenadee is way too big for her bumbo but I always catch her sitting in it while playing with her toys or reading books.  (Yes she wears the stacker rings as bracelets)
Grandpa Stan bought Kenadee this huge stuffed monkey and she loves to jump on him and give him hugs.  If anyone else touches him or gets close to him she starts to cry and will point at them.  She is very possessive of him.
She cracks me up in the tub.  She was giving me really good cheesy grins on this particular day.  She loves to run her hands under the faucet as the tub is filling up.
She loves her Mickey car.  She pushes the same button over and over again that just happens to be the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme, but she doesn't let it finish playing before she pushes it again so we hear the beginning 20 times in a row.  Sometimes it makes Dru and I want to pull our hair out, but you look at her smiling and you can't help up laugh.
