Blaire: 15 Months


Blaire is officially 15 months old! She is still wild, crazy and as sweet as can be. She loves to blow kisses (complete with a “muah” sound effect), give hugs and is even now turning back in to our cuddly baby girl we once had! Now that she can climb up on to the couch, she likes laying on us and rubbing our arms, or playing with our hair. She would live outside, if we let her. She can shake her head “no”, and uses her whole body to nod “yes”. It is so funny because she can really answer us when she wants something. Example: This morning she brought me a pair of my sandals, and I said “Do you want to go outside?” and she nodded her entire body “yes,” ran to the back door and proceeded to pound on the sliding glass door. She is also communicating with her hands more! Tonight she was pointing at her binky in Jason’s hand, yelling and was using her other hand to simulate putting a binky in her mouth. IT. WAS. HILARIOUS.

She is still saying lots of words, some of her new words this month were bubbles (THE CUTEST WORD SHE HAS EVER SAID), duck, quack, grandma, and shoes. She also imitates Mocha’s bark and it is hilarious.


IMG_4480At her last doctor’s appointment (a few weeks ago) she had finally broken 24lbs. She’s still wearing size 18 months and I love that her hair is getting long enough for bows. I also LOVE that while her face and her arms have been thinning out, those thighs are still chubby and oh, so cute! She also just had a third molar pop through this past week. She’s been a champ and has still been sleeping through the night and acting like her silly, sweet self.



If you gathered anything from this month’s post, it should be that we’re living with a sweet, hilarious little person. And this sweet, hilarious person wishes she could just live in our backyard. ;) xo

    I ran across your site a week ago and began to follow your site
    content consistently. I haven’t left a comment on any sort of blog
    site just yet but I was considering to start soon. It’s definitely
    exciting to really contribute to an article even if it’s only a blog.
    I really liked going through a number of your posts.
    Fantastic articles of course. I will keep visiting your blog
    often. I learned lots from you. Thanks!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
