Fifteen Months

Dear Samantha,

You are now 15 months old. Time is really flying! This past month you have been learning so much. It seems like every day you surprise us with a new word! We attended a 1st birthday for one of your friends, and when it came time to cut the cake, you got very excited and said "take!" I had no idea you even knew the word, so it was pretty cool to see that not only did you know the word, but you knew that cake always comes after singing "Happy Birthday".

You are getting to be quite the little monkey these days, too. You started out by just climbing onto the fireplace, but now you climb on chairs (and you fell once, too - that was scary!), and you climb from the end table onto the back of the couch. The other day you were outside with Daddy while he was working, and he was shocked to find that you had climbed all the way to the top of the rock wall on the hill in the backyard! You have figured out how to move things around to make steps for yourself. You like to take Mommy's trash can, lay it on its side, and put it in front of the bookshelf so you can use it as a step to get to the higher shelves. What will you think of next?!

You have been doing much better about sleeping through the night again. For almost month you were dealing with some teething pain, and you were waking up several times a night, which has been rough on Mommy and Daddy. Thankfully the past week or so you've only been waking up once, or sometimes not at all. Those canine teeth still haven't pushed their way through yet, but we can see that they are very close now.

You have also started saying "no" now. It's pretty cute for now, though I'm sure it will start trying our patience soon enough! You say it more like "nah" as in "Can I give you a kiss, Sammy?" "Nah, nah, nah." We have started giving you time outs now when you get into the cat food. Hopefully it will help you understand what no really means!

You are truly adorable, and I love you with all my heart. You are the sweetest little girl I have ever known, and you make my world go 'round. I love watching you grow!
