The Difference 3 Months Makes

Happy birthday to my nephew Wyatt, who turned 1 yesterday! I love that Edith has a cousin so close in age.

Edith is a mere three months older -- she turned 15 months on Friday. Yet it seems as if so much has happened in the last three months! She gained almost 2 pounds, to 20 pounds, 1 ounce. She's longer, too: from 29 inches to 30.5 inches long.

She can stand without holding on to anything, although walking is still elusive. But the girl who hesitantly began to wave a couple of weeks before her birthday now waves to everyone in sight. When we sat by the door at Qdoba on a recent Sunday, she greeted everyone who walked by.

Now she points, eats off a plate and tries her best to use a spoon. She can make choices: which cup to drink from, which book to read. She can climb up stairs or to the top of a chair -- although coming back down is another story.

She loves the Itsy Bitsy Spider, especially making the hand motions for the spider. She's on her way to learning the parts of her body. Her belly is a popular choice, with her toes and head not too far behind.

I know there are things I'm missing. It's all happening so fast, it's sometimes difficult to keep track. I can't wait to see what the next three months bring.
