maternity photos pt. 2 + brooks at 15 months.

brooks jumped in some of my maternity pictures and was being the biggest ham.  this kid is not camera shy, and it made for some pretty sweet moments.  oh, i just love him.

brooks at 15 months
weight: 23 pounds 5 ounces (62%)
height: 33 inches (96%)
head circum: 19.25 inches (94%)

he loves:

-stuffed animals
-keys and driving dad's car
-playing outside
-throwing anything and everything away
-dancing to music
-fake laughing when other people are laughing
-getting chased/chasing people
-poking my belly button
-taking tubbys and dumping cups of water on himself

he dislikes:

-being alone
-when he doesn't get his way
-leaving his honey's house (grandma)
-most food as of late
-animals that get too close for comfort, he likes to admire from afar

at 15 months, brooks is quite the little handful.  he is into EVERYTHING.  he loves to open all the cupboards and take things out.  sometimes he will put them back.  he loves to hide things in drawers and his special hiding spot is the crock pot.  he routinely will walk into the bathroom and pull down all of the towels and unravel some toilet paper.
he LOVES to help out by throwing things in the garbage like diapers and trash and he gets the proudest smile on his face after he does it.  a few times a day i have to check the trash for other non trash items he may have "helped" to throw away... remotes, keys, clothes, food from the pantry etc.

he babbles a lot and can say typical words like mama, dada, hot, ball, shoes, zeus (his puppy), no, yeah, etc. but he is pretty stubborn when it comes to talking.  he will often repeat a word once or twice and then will not say it again.
he can sign all done, please, more, and thank you.
he understands so much, but chooses to communicate in grunting, pointing, and whining which can be quite annoying.

he has always been a cuddle bug, but lately he is so lovey and i can't get enough.  he is quite attached to his mommy and daddy and i can't help but think he knows his world is about to be rocked.  he constantly comes over to matt or i and lays his head on us and says, "awww." or lays a big wet kiss.  he loves to put his hands around our necks and nuzzle his little face into our shoulders.
he seriously is the sweetest little nugget. 

he is quite friendly and loves to wave to people at the store.  he is quite a flirt with the ladies and will bat his pearly blue eyes.
he LOVES to watch kids play, especially our neighbor kids and his cousins.  
he is quite the little turkey, but we love him to death.  he has made the last 15 months so fun and full of joy and happiness.  even when i want to sell him on ebay, he has the ability to melt my heart or make me laugh.

my baby is about to become a little boy.
