Crew Benjamin: 15 Month Update:

Happy 15 months to our sweet little boy! My how he has grown. It has been a pretty busy few months since his Last Update. Summer ended with a trip to The Florida Keys, Crew finally started Walking, we celebrated Halloween, he took his first plane ride and visited all of his family out in Washington State for the first time (that trip will posted soon), and can we take a moment and look at his Big Boy Haircut. I can't' even. 

Crew is such a love and joy to be around. He loves to be held, kissed, and rough housed with. He truly is all boy. He still isn't talking as much as big sis was by this point but he has added a couple of new words to his vocabulary, "wow" and "whoa". We absolutely love you little man and love watching you grow into such a big boy these days! 

Crew's Stats:
*Weight: 28lbs (15 month check up is Monday morning)
*Height: 32inches 
*Diaper Size: Size 5 Pampers Swaddlers
*Clothes: Anywhere between 12 months and 2T

*Teeth: 11 (he cut his bottom two incisors plus 3 molars ((top 2 and bottom left)) all within 2 weeks). His last One Year Molar is almost cut as well which will make it 12 teeth.

*Sleep: He is still such an amazing sleeper (thank you sweet boy). We had a few rough days during his teething (obviously) but besides that, he still takes 2 naps and sleeps through the night. 
Morning nap: around 8:30am, sleeps around an hour
Afternoon nap: around 1pm, sleeps around 2 or more hours
Bedtime: 7pm, wakes at 7am. Crew was still nursing just at night until he decided on his own that he is done with it last night... (cue the uncontrollable tears from this momma as I was not quite ready to give it up yet... I don't want to talk about it). Thankfully he is still such a Momma's Boy that all he wants at bedtime is for me to cradle him, rock him, and sing to him (I sing Hush Little Baby to the kids every night) while his sweet little arm is wrapped around my neck. We truly have been blessed beyond words with two amazing babies/toddlers!

*Food: This kid can eat! I don't think he has ever refused food. He seems to love everything and always tries it. But a typical day looks like this:
Breakfast: Banana, Cheerios, Yogurt (he loves when we have eggs & bacon or Waffles)
Lunch: Turkey, Cheese, Blueberries, Grapes, Strawberries, Goldfish or Veggie Sticks (he also loves when he gets a PB&J sandwich)
Dinner: He gets whatever we are having. He loves Pasta, Spaghetti, Chicken, Broccoli, "Taco Tuesdays", Sweet Potatoes, any kind of Potato, Pizza, etc.
Snacks: His snacks normally consist of Veggie Sticks, Applesauce, Goldfish, Blueberries, Grapes. 
Milk: This boy is a milk machine. He drinks almost 3 gallons of milk by himself every week. 

*Words: Mama, Dada, Nana, Hi, "Ni Ni" (night night), "Daaahh" (Dog), Bay (Bailey), Wawa (Water), Wow, Whoa, "Ta-Da", "Hahhhh" (hot, and even blows)

*Social: Crew had a big week last week getting to meet all of my moms side of the family for the first time (Aunts, Uncles, Cousins). And finally getting to meet his Great Nana and his Great Papa. I can't tell you how special our time was with them. So incredibly thankful for our trip! Crew loves people and people love him. He will wave at Every. Single. Person we walk by and says "Hiiiii" to them. He is also the biggest flirt. He will stare you down until you look at him and as soon as you do will give a head tilt and side smile. I mean come on. I can't tell you how many compliments we get on our children when we are out but especially when it is just Crew and I while Charli is at school; "Wow, what a calm, happy little boy" "Oh he is just darling". It doesn't matter that I have heard it a million times, it never gets old and Steven and I are so grateful for our two beautiful babies. 
*Other: Crew is still very ticklish, loves bath time, and loves playing with his toys. He absolutely loves all of his cars, trains, blocks (he can stack about 6 blocks on top of each other), and dinosaurs. But he also loves chewing on all of big sisters princesses heads! 

Happy 15 Months Crew!
We love you!
