Wow 15 months already. Melody sure has come a long way. She measures 30" in height, weighs 24lbs and has a head circumference of 19". Growth percentiles have been leveling out, she's basically in the 50th percentile (except for head size, she's in the 75th in that category, just like her brother was).
She's been walking for quite a while now and has some awesome dexterity. Tracey believes it has to do will the baby-led weaning as she's been feeding herself since she was 6 months old. Annoyingly she can also pull off the electrical safety covers off of the outlets, cheeky monkey. One of the best things about her little pincher grip is that she can pick up every small speck, dust ball, or bit of paper off of the ground and feverishly comes and gives it to Roger or Tracey to dispose of, quite fascinating really, most kids would just eat it.
I'm not sure if babies can have shoe fetishes, but Melody sure loves shoes. She can't get enough of them whether they are her own or not. Words aren't coming fast and furious yet, but she sure understands a whole lot. It's cute to see her put electronic devices to her ear and pretend to say hello. So adorable to watch her put all sorts of hats on her head and say, "Hhaa". She also been using a few signs like milk, more, and waving bye-bye anytime someone puts on their jacket.
Happy 15 months Melody, you've been a dream. Keep up the good work.
