Chander - 15 months.

You are 15 months old buddy!

We love you so much, and are just loving this stage right now.

The biggest news is that you started walking this month!

It still has to be your idea, but when you want to walk - you take off!

The other night we were at an FFA meeting, and you were walking all around the ag room - taking as many as 20-30 steps before you'd drop down and crawl.  You're pretty steady, probably because you took so long to walk.

You weigh 30 pounds, just started wearing a size 5 diaper and are in 2T clothes.  I hope we can keep you in 2T for a few months more - but I'm not sure - you have really gotten tall this month!

You have 12 teeth fully in, and your 4 eye teeth are making their way.  One has broken through, but the other three are taking their sweet time.  Drooling and multiple bibs/shirts per day has been the norm for a few weeks now.

You still love playing in the dishwasher, and have recently discovered that you can "cook" and stir with mommy's pots and pans that you pull from the bottom drawer.  You're great help at dinner - I cook at the stove, and you cook on the floor.

You still love playing in the bath!

It's funny - Grandma bought you fun bath toys for your birthday, but you'd rather play with a piece of chain (off of the bathtub drain plug), a wash cloth, a tooth brush and a measuring cup.  I'm sure as you get older you'll want "fancier" things - so for now, we're just enjoying that you like the simple things.

You love to look out windows, and wrap things around your neck.  Not all the way around your neck (yikes - that would scare me and we still watch you carefully), but you like something to be on the back of your neck.  Scarves are always a hit, along with long socks (like daddy's), stretchy hats and anything else that's soft and easy to throw over.

We're still working on getting your room set up (hopefully we'll get that done this weekend) but we made space for you to play and pull out toys - and while it's usually a mess, you are great at playing independently.  You like anything that plays music, your popper that you push, and your Schleich cows.
I feel like I say this every month - but you are just so content to be outside and on the go.  We love that we can take you to an all day branding, or work outside, or run errands - and you just keep up and are happy to be along.

You love to play in the dirt/mud/rocks - and honestly, you stay pretty clean and are just content to pick up and move rocks or dirt clods, or put them in a baggie and dump them out.

We love you Chandler!  Thanks for being such a great son to us!
