15 Months

Happy 15 months to Mya! Today we went for her 15 month well check. She is now 22.2 pounds and 31 3/4 inches. Not even a full pound gained since her 12 month visit, so still a peanut! We're still working on teeth. She currently has 3 and half teeth...with 8 on the way. They are just taking a really long time to come in. No new words yet, but her understanding of words/directions is just taking off. She'll do almost anything I ask her too (of course unless she's beings stubborn!) and it's amazing to watch her follow my commands. She is walking very fast now and doesn't need her arms for balance. She can also blow kisses now, which is too cute.

Her latest favorite activities are coloring and dancing. Anytime music comes on, even if it's just a commercial on TV, she will start shaking her booty. It is hysterical. Here is a little video. Yes, she is wearing only a diaper and a bib. What can I say, it was a lazy Sunday. Sorry for the video quality - I need some camera help.

At her appointment today the doctor saw lesions on the back of her throat, a sign of Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. This is the second time that Mya's had it. It just keeps going around daycare. I didn't even know she had it though, so it can't be bothering her that much. She also got her 15 mo. vaccines, which include the MMR, aka the Autism shot. I am worried about that one. I know that there is research that there is no link between vaccines and Autism but I've heard people give talks about how it's not the actual vaccine but a suppressed immune system while the child is given the vaccine that can cause the problems. We all know Mya doesn't have the best immune system!! Of course I worried all day about whether I should have gotten that shot today..but the doctor seemed to think it would be ok.

Here is a link if you want to read more about vaccines...it's really interesting. http://www.generationrescue.org/vaccines.html


Here is a picture of Mya on her 15 month birthday.




We also woke up to a surprise from Hurricane Ike this morning. We had a wind storm last night and one of our trees came down in the backyard. We were very lucky that it fell the way it did because had it fallen forward, it would have gone right through Mya's bedroom window. That little girl's got an angel watching over her!


This one is hard to see but our neighbor's tree spilt in half from the wind

T'was quite an eventful day for us!




I also forgot to give props to my friends Carrie and Tim. They welcomed their baby girl, Ashleigh Patricia, on September 9, 2008. She is beautiful and I can't wait to see her! Congrats Sheehan family!
