Isabella's 15 months

It's been a long time since I've given an update on Isabella. She turned 15 months last Sunday. She's walking and starting to run. She climbs everything STILL. She says about 15 words, still gets "doggy" right 100% of the time, but still confused on Mommy and Daddy. She knows who we are but will call us by the wrong name. She will copy anything that you want her to say. She knows the meaning of "ow", don't know how she learned that, we didn't teach her.

Something we did teach her, that she is very good at saying and we are proud of, is "thank you." It's probably the clearest words she says, as well. When someone hands her something she always says "tank ew,"

She is able to answer "yes" or "no" to most questions. It's a little tricky though, "Yes" always means yes, but "no" doesn't always mean no. She has two distinct no's. Either "no" or "uh-uh", but "Nooo" with a head shake means yes. We are working on that one!

She eats everything that we eat. We have yet to find something she won't eat. She didn't like olives the first time, but will eat them now.

First thing in the morning she wants to eat, if we don't get out of bed fast enough she will go down the stairs to the kitchen, open the cupboard, get out the cereal box, and carry it back up the stairs to us. We got a video of it one morning, I'll post it later.

Walk this Way

Isabella has been a slow starter in the walking department. She's been cruising since 7 months, and started taking steps the beginning of May, but just last week she really started to walk.
