Another month has passed and the boys are growing and learning like crazy. At their 15 month check-up Noah weighed 24 pounds 11 ounces and was 31 inches, Ezra weighed 23 pounds 15 ounces and was 30 inches. Noah still has just 2 teeth, but he is getting his top two right now, and Ezra still has 4, but he is getting some more also.
They are very active now which is a lot of fun and a lot of work! (but I love it, seriously I do, I am in the best shape!) Ezra is running and Noah is walking everywhere. Their favorite activity is anything outside. They love eating dirt, sand, grass, and Ezra loves rocks (why did we purposely put them in our backyard?).
Noah is such a happy boy. I am really shocked by this because he was not a super happy baby, but he is one happy toddler. He will sit still and play, read, or work on a new skill. The other day he played in his sandbox for a good 15 minutes while I chased his brother around the yard and daddy did yard work. Noah loves his sleep (he takes after his mommy), it really irks him when Ezra wakes him up in the middle of the night or early from his nap. He eats anything I put in front of him, occasionally after a few bites he’ll reject a new food, but he tries it. He can say kitty and hi. He is still in love with peek-a-boo and now uses furniture to play the game.
Ezra is an independent boy, he loves his mommy and daddy but really wants to do everything on his own. He is constantly moving, I mean constantly. He has little fear and scares his mommy a lot! He loves animals, our animals tolerate him and he is so gentle. He is a pickier eater, but not a picky eater yet. I have been having problems finding dinners that he loves, I finally scored a big win the other night with a mac and cheese recipe that had cauliflower puree hidden in it. He still just says momma and dada, but he has his own Ezra language and uses it a lot. He is constantly talking.
They are both such a joy to be around. Even though the tantrums have begun.
