Reagan is 15 Months Old!

We had Reagan's 15 month check up yesterday, and other than the fact that she is cutting 4 molars, everything looks good. She is 31 inches tall (over half of my height already) and 22 pounds. This puts her in the 50th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for height. She is saying several words now including, mama, dada, that, and yes. And she knows the signs for please, thank you, more, and all done. She has been doing Please a lot as she realizes that it usually get her what she wants :) She is no dumby! Although she is not saying many words yet, she understands pretty much everything we say and she will point to her belly, her nose, her head and her toes when asked where each is. She has also figured out how to open all the doors in the house so it is a constant challenge to keep her from going outside. We now keep the doors locked at all times :) One of my favorite things that Reagan does is give kisses. It is so sweet. Sometimes she does it when asked, but often she will just lean in and kiss us out of the blue! She also loves to give
Abby kisses. It is a good thing Abby is so tolerant!
Last weekend Michael and Kinsey came over for a visit, and it was so much fun to watch the girls play together. They are exactly 2 years apart in age so they don't play together as well as Lilly and Reagan did, but they still had a good time. We took them to the park and to the pool. Kinsey is so comfortable in the water. Reagan is getting there. Starting next week we have 2 weeks of swimming lessons so that should help. We also went with Kim, Lincoln, and Kim's mom to a park here in Charlotte that had a petting zoo, and play ground, and a carousal. Reagan and Lincoln had a great time running around and they were both sound asleep in their carseats minutes after we were on the road.
So the heat of summer has hit the Carolinas, and now our challenge is to stay busy without being able to go outside much (or at least in the middle of the day). But we are starting up a new Romp n' Roll Art Class, the morning swim lessons, and she is starting to like coloring and occasionally watching cartoons, so we will get by :)
