Liam at 15 Months

Liam Dayne
15 Months
16 1/2 lbs
29 inches


Milestones:  He's finally crawling properly!!! He started right after I posted his 14 month update.  He's now crawling and cruising quickly and getting into everything.  He can cruise one handed, and his balance is much better.  Walking independently is the next step!


Tooth Count: 3, and one on the way.


Eating: 3 meals a day, 2 snacks, drinking from a straw cup, and nursing morning and night.


Favorite Foods:  Bananas, oranges, grapes, strawberries, nutrigrain bars, puffs, lil' crunchies (Gerber), yogurt melts, pasta with red sauce, macaroni and cheese, tapioca pudding, and carrots.


Sleeping:  12-14 hours every night without waking, plus one long nap and usually a short nap that takes place while running errands.  Still a great sleeper!


Sounds/Words:  Mama, Dada, Uh-Oh, Baba, Oooo, Ahhh, Nana.  He barks when he hears a dog bark, growls, and blow raspberries a lot. Signs more and eat. Constantly babbles and sings.  He is starting to mimic a lot of sounds, thanks to speech therapy!


Likes:  Eating, nursing, snuggling, reading books, playing, getting into things he isn't supposed to touch, speech therapy sessions, ripping apart the Christmas Tree, and taking baths.


Dislikes:  Messy diapers, feeling cold, getting his face wiped, being forced to do things he doesn't want to do (PT sessions!), and bumping his head.


Favorite Toys:  Play kitchen, Leapfrog Cook and Play Potsy, Little People, Fisher Price activity puzzle, foam letter mat, and books.


Nicknames: Miam and Little Dude.


Health:  100% healthy!  No health concerns whatsoever!

Someone is super excited about no therapy this week! Instead, he gets to focus on destroying the house! #trouble

Early Intervention:  Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Therapy.  An hour long session for each type of therapy, in our home, once a week. He got Sure Steps to help with proper foot placement when he stands, but he only wears them during therapy.   Right before we got them, he started standing with his foot placed properly on the ground! It figures!

We just picked up Liam's SureSteps today.  They're so tiny; one of the smallest pairs the man said he ever fitted on a child!  He doesn't roll his ankles inward, which is what they're intended to correct, but he had the tendency to balance on his toes or

Wearing:  Mostly 3-6 month clothing, but some 6-9 month items, too. 0-3 month onesies still fit.  Size 1 shoes. Size 2 diapers. His last meal, most of the time.


Personality:  He is the happiest child I've ever met.  His smile says it all!



  1. What a cutie! So glad he is happy and healthy!

  2. Sad Liam on the bed, priceless. Sort of. Poor little man got hurt in the process.

    I cannot believe he is almost 1.5 years old. This is just too fast. TOO FAST
