15 months old

At 15 months we are in the thick of the "exploration" stage. Everything is about -What does this thing do? What happens when I bang this against the table? How fast can I run before I wipe out? What does that taste like? (which is why I had to call poison control yesterday ... and just in case you were wondering ... eating a small bite of deoderant tastes disgusting but is not really dangerous). :P

So Chloe pretty much spends her day exploring everything she can get her hands on. (Which is why my house pretty much constantly looks like the toy box threw up.)

But despite the messes, the bumps and bruises, and the constant motion Chloe is in ... this stage is really so much fun.

She is learning so many new things - like how to show us her belly button and how to moo like a cow (all important life skills, huh??!) She is not saying many words but she sure is a constant stream of jibber-jabber. I think right now she is focusing on all these physical skills, and then one day a few months from now she is going to wake up one morning and have sentences start pouring out of her little mouth!

Here are a few of the other new things she is learning:

How to sort shapes

How to climb up on stools and get into stuff

How to give Mom a dirty look when busted with contraband
(and apparently also how to overaccessorize!)

How to sing and dance

And last but not least ... Chloe has learned to be so cute that it is hard to be upset when she creates all sorts of mayhem around the house :)

She is a ton of fun these days!

I just love your blog. That "caught with contraband" face was too funny! And the dancing...and the get-wiped-out-by-big-brother finish was classic.
Again, I just love your blog. :)

Chloe is adorable and lots of fun I bet. Her cousin Brooke is just as adorable. She loves to explore also, dance, smile, giggle, climb and turn Molly and Josh's house upside down! We just adore her too! Can't wait to see Chloe again with her cousin Brooke. They both can create mayhem together and have a great time doing it!
