15 Months

Miss Scarlett is now 15 months old!  She weights 20 pounds, 14 oz. and is about 28.5 inches tall, just beginning to outgrow some of her 12 month size clothes.  She has 6 teeth on top and 4 on the bottom, with the first two lower molars working their way through.  Her hair is about and inch and a half long!  She laughs and chatters all day long, with a lot of "dadadadadadadada" especially.  She likes to play games like peek-a-boo; she's particularly fond of me pretending to sleep, then "waking up".  She still sleeps about 12 hours at night, but only takes one good nap each day.
Bed Head!

This month brought along a big event:  she rolls over!  We have been working on rolling for nearly a year, once her incisions were healed enough, and she has finally, finally, finally decided it was time to get moving.  It's still a rare event, but it has been witnessed by multiple people, and I got it on video, so it's official!  Now, on to crawling...


It has been one year since a massive tumor was removed from Scarlett's brain.  Tomorrow night, we complete the 11th round of chemotherapy, and get a week long break before the very last round!

Awesome on the rollin bit!!!
She looks really good. And her weight is fairly good. My 14 month old is only 22 lbs. she was sick for a few months and hasn't gain any. But she was a chunker. But Scarlett looks really well. Your family is always in my thoughts.
