I'd settle for a slowdown

I know that I say this all the time, but I really am having a hard time with the whole growing up thing. Madi does things that I didn't think would come for awhile. For example, in the car, she'll say "mama mama mama mama...." over and over and over and over until I look back and acknowledge her. I remember doing that to my mom when I was what, like 8? She's almost 15 months old and she does it for her own amusement. I can't stop laughing when she does it. Her sweet little face and her twinkly eyes, looking up at me saying, "Mama" with this huge grin on her face. I can't get enough. I wouldn't mind pausing for a little while though. This is all happening so fast.

Here are some blurbs from her journal this month :) and of course a few pictures. (we'll never have a shortage of those!)

15 Month

  • You and Bubba are best buds now. You wrestle, sweet talk to each other (which I have to admit, seeing a 6'4" 240lb guy talk baby talk to a 15 month old is something to see, but so sweet). You get so excited when he comes in the door. The first thing he does is look for you and talk to you before he even talks to the rest of us. You touch foreheads together too. That's yours and his greeting to each other.
  • Papaw taught you that his tractor says "boom boom" so now when you see anything that moves, you point to it and say "boooom booooom!" and get excited.
  • You used to not eat hardly at all (unless it was some type of cookie or contained cheese), but those days, I'm happy to say, seem to be over. You eat constantly. I bought you a grilled cheese and tator tots at Sonic the other day and you ate the ENTIRE thing. You even wanted to eat the crust. I was so happy! At school, your daily reports used to say that you would only eat your snacks. Now, it says you eat everything. So relieved!
  • When you want something, you point to it and say "this!" but your version of that word sounds more like "dis!" :) and when you find something that you want to show me, you bring it to me and put it in front of my face, point to it with the other hand and yell "dis!" in this big girly voice like you're so proud. :)
  • You're becoming pretty dependent on blankets and stuffed animals now. Which is strange because months ago, you hated both. But in the car, you have to be covered up and have a baby in your hand, just like when you get sleepy. It sweet, you carry Nonna's old babydoll around the house (by the leg, most of the time), and you love your PupPup and give him big hugs when I give him to you. :)
