15 Months Old

Things about Ellie at 15 months old:

signs at least 40 words on command, will mimic countless others, and usually signs and speaks the word simultaneously
speaks 25 words or so - her favorites are Ellie (Eh-ee), turtle, up, down, go, Dad, Mom, yes, and (of course) NO
has 4 top teeth, 4 molars, and 2.5 bottom teeth
loves her baby dolls
likes to "drive" her cars and make "vroom vroom" noises
recognizes Davis in pictures and at sight and says "Day"
doesn't mind getting dressed, except for putting her arms in sleeves - she hates that
is starting to be better about eating, and will at least put lick new foods - we have discovered she likes sauces (Cafe Rio salad dressing, sauce on noodles, etc)
is starting to actually drink water out of a sippy cup
loves caps, and will insistently say CAP and want to put it on and off (water bottles, lotion, her bottle, whatever she can find)
hates the vacuum - will cry bloody murder whenever it goes on, even if one of us is holding her while the other is vacuuming
loves to sing with me, and is starting to know the actions - our favorite songs (that we sing over and over and over) are Wheels on the Bus; Itsy Bitsy Spider; Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes; There Was A Little Turtle; Popcorn Popping; any Signing Time song

Ellie was not super excited to have her picture taken this morning.  I got these adorable stickers to show how old she is, and Ellie discovered that she could pull it off.  So there was a lot of "wait, baby, leave that there" as we tried to capture a good smile.  Here are the best shots:

She is such a cutie and will make a great big sister.
