Alaska has learnt lots of new words and noises at 15 months. She says 'sss' like a snake, 'ooo ooo, aaa aaa,' like a monkey, says 'birdy,''bee,' 'bunny,' 'beep beep' for a car, 'toot toot' for a train, 'cya,' 'snap snap' for a crocodile, 'dinosaur,' 'giraffe,' 'butter,' 'eyes,' 'money,' 'outside' and says 'Starka' for Sammy's Mum.
She can point to her eyes, ears, teeth, mouth, tongue, nose, cheeks, hair, fingers, belly and toes.
She has started to get really frustrated with certain things and have meltdowns. Especially when she can't fit something into something or when she can't express what she wants.
Some extra cute things she has done lately is when something is hot, she will blow on it whether it is food or not. She also will look me in the eyes and with a big smile on her face will say 'mama,' lean in and kiss me on the lips.
She is very fussy with food and won't even try a lot of things. Her favourite food and the only thing she's guaranteed to eat is pasta. She will also eat copious amount of butter if I let her.
Her favourite songs are Baa baa black sheep and Old McDonald and she asks us to sing them regularly.
I have discovered that she loves 'helping' and bought her a step stool so that she can start doing things herself, which she is really pleased with. Now she can brush her teeth and wash her hands without being lifted up (she still need a lot of help but she feels like she is doing it herself.)
