Bronson: 15 Months Old

One day late, but here it is:

Bronson is 15 months old. Kyle mentioned today that he is a one year old going on 17. He seems to want to do everything by himself, including push his own stroller, even though he is not tall enough or walking well enough to do this task himself. He has also decided that his bike is good for tricks of all kinds and refuses to sit while on it. I guess he gets this from his dad that did several years of motocross in high school. He also escaped and opened up the non-latched baby gate (my mistake) and climbed the stairs. I was right behind him, but he is a little climbing machine lately. We are also still trying to get him to sleep through the night. Basically he hasn't had a whole nights sleep since he turned one. Mommy is getting VERY tired.

Here are his current stats:
  • 19 pounds, 12 ounces (2o percent tile on the REAL chart)
  • 29 1/4 inches tall (10 percent tile on the REAL chart)
  • Not a big eater, but loves to try whatever his parents are eating
  • Walks, crawls, and moves wherever he wants.
  • The day after he began walking he went to the ER after hitting his head and throwing up. Not one of our finer moments. We were so scared.
  • Loves to tickle people, especially his Auntie Ashley
  • His favorite animal is the monkey and he doesn't care which one he has as long as it is a monkey. (stuffed animal)
  • He now has 6 teeth and yes, I am reminded often that they look weird.
  • He still hasn't had a haircut, but hopefully will get one this week.
  • His favorite trip is to the beach. He loves to walk in the sand.
  • Doesn't talk much lately, just lots of laughing.
