Levi Milestones 7-15 months

There has to be some record for this stuff.  A random Notes page on my phone is probably not sufficient.

7 months:

  • Crawled everywhere.
  • Sat himself up from a crawl.
  • Pulled to stand.
  • Got his 3rd tooth
  • Started stuffing his Aden and Anais blankets in his mouth (like it's a wad of Big League Chew gum) in order to fall asleep.
  • Drank through a straw.
  • Transitioned to 2 naps a day.

  • Shy around strangers

8 months:

  • Got 4-6th tooth
  • Began showing a nut sensitivity (Welts on his face after eating a veggie lasagna with cashew cream).
  • Gave kisses when asked.
  • Began to show he knew familiar phrases. (Time for a nap, etc.)
  • Began to really show his preference for daddy
  • 19.5 lbs, 30 inches.

9 months:

  • Took his first airplane ride
  • Started standing by himself.
  • 7-8th teeth.
  • Played pat a cake.
  • Responds to phrases like "want to get out?' or "What's in your mouth?"
  • 21 lbs., 31 inches long.

10 months:

  • Learned to back down the stairs!
  • Double ear infection.
  • Folds his arms for prayers.
  • Clapped and danced to music.
  • Still not standing much by himself.

  • Made the silliest scrunched nose face.
  • Began the ridiculous fighting any  time clothes or diaper changes are in order.
  • Said "Sock"

11 months:

  • Stands on his own. 
  • First haircut.
  • Throws food he's down with on the floor.
  • Said Dada and Seth
  • Refuses to do tricks more than 3-4 times.  Once we know he can do them, he doesn't do them anymore.

  • Pointed to hair, mouth, eyes, nose.
  • When asked what a fish says: open and closes mouth rapidly
  • Said "Uh-oh! and Mama"

  • Really really good small motor skills.  Built towers of blocks over and over.\
  • Clicked his tongue to let us know he wanted food.

13 months:

  • Confirmed a peanut, cashew, brazil nut, hazel nut allergy.  Went on a strict no nuts policy (even the ones he's not technically allergic to) in hopes that he will be the 20% that grow out of it.
  • Got all 4 molars.
  • Did Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • Could unzip zippers!

14 months:

  • First week without mom and dad...did great!  He liked Grandma...but only if Jane, Emma or Faith weren't around.
  • Started walking at 14.5 months and was really good right away...because he was so old.
  • Began to not take a morning nap every once in a while.
  • Said Hi and All Done.

  • Started kicking a soccer ball around like a champ.  Obsessed with balls and started by throwing them backward, but now can throw forward.
  • Discovered play doh and often finds the jars and brings them to me pleadingly
  • Said Ni-Ni (Night night) and Ree (Read)

I got a giggle out of the blankets being stuffed in his mouth and looking like a wad of Big League Chew gum.

I also got a giggle out of him understanding the phrase, "What's in your mouth?" It made me laugh because, "Oh, if I had a dime for every time I asked one of my kids that..."

You are so wise to have put all of this on the blog. I still need to compile John's.
