We had our 15 month checkup today! OH MY WORD! That was the first thing I said to Jody after I got finished taking her! We had a very early appointment this morning, so when I got there we were the only ones in the waiting room. I sat down to fill out the 15 month questionairre and I hadn't even finished the first part before they called us back! Wonderful? NO! As soon as Brailyn saw the nurse(Ms. Kay the one that it always is) she started screaming! I mean SCREAMING! She screamed the whole time I had to lay her down to get her weighed, lay her down to get her measured, and when she tried to measure her head, I had to hold Brailyn's arms because she was trying to get the tape measure off! SHe finally quietted down after she left. SHe was still snubbing when Dr. Green walked in, and she started screaming again! She screamed the whole time he looked at her and I was holding her. After he left, she got quiet and then the nurse came back in for the shots. As soon as she saw her she started screaming again! It was awful! It didn't take long for her to get quiet, but she snubbed all the way back to the car! My poor baby! It amazes me how she can remember that place!

- The doctor said everything looked great, and we mainly talked about safety and eating habits. She does not like many vegetables! She likes green beans and corn, but that is about it! Lately I have tried pinto beans, broccoli abd cheese sauce, and carrots. She has spit out everyone! She absolutely loves fruit, any and all kinds! He told me if I had to sprinkle a little cinnamon on the carrots, that was fine. Also, I could give her V8 VFusion juice. Lately, she has been eating better with ketchup on stuff. He told me to watch that! OOPS!
- Her vocabulary expands every day! So far she says, or attempts to say: Da-Da, Ma-Ma, Neena, Papa, Pop-up, Ma-mo for Gramma, Nit-nee for Whitney, Maa-Maa for Madi, Bip-bo(hippo), Duck, dog(and she now says pete for the church dog!) cak-ker(cracker) Wa-wa(water), ju(juice), gone-gone) night-night, iiiiiiiii(I love you!), bow, poo(poop-just started this) no-no(AHHHH), nose, noo(snow), bye-bye, hi, bear, deer, Dot Dog(anything mickey mouse), mimi(minnie mouse), nack(snack) na-nas(bananas), bubble, belly button, ball and but-ball(football), uh-oh, book, hot, and bath! I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but she just amazes me every day! Is it wrong to be proud of her?

- I read her a story, usually twice beacause when I say the end she says "no" and turens it over. How can I resist. When I turn her over to rock her, she looks right into my eyes and says "nigh-nigh!" Talk about melting her mama's heart!Then we rock to sleep singing Jesus Loves Me, Deep and Wide, or Jesus Loves the Little Children.
- Her bedtime is usually 9 o'clock. We feed her cereal at about 8:30. Then we take a bath, get lotioned up, brush our teeth, and recently we have been learning to spit. Then she tells her daddy night night. She usually sleeps until 8 or 8:30. Then we eat lunch at about 12 and go back to sleep at 12:30 and she will usually sleep for 2-3 hours. Heaven!

- She has a book called "Little Quack's Opposite's." There is a page that says near and far. I always bring it up to her face and then move it back. Now she does it. Then there is a page that says he is loud. SHe will squeal at the top of her lungs! Then it says fast and slow. She shakes her head real fst on that page. On the happy and sad page she pretends to cry! On the hot page she says hat and blows! And on the awake/asleep page she puts her finger to her mouth and says "shhh!"
