Melissa Amber Seals

Melissa entered her toddler stage trying to follow in her brother's footsteps, though she didn't seem to realize she wasn't as big as him.  She climbed up everything, particularly the toy shelf.  She had 10 teeth (4 on top, 4 on bottom and 2 molars) and continued teething.  She sang and talked ALOT, able to say words such as "ball," "bye," "nose" and "shoe."  (She loved to show you her nose!)

At her 15-month checkup with Dr. Jarvis, Melissa weighed 22 lbs., 14oz. and was 32 inches tall.  She was moving off baby food, into chunkier toddler foods and table food.  She really enjoyed saltines and Cheerios! She was also learning to eat with a spoon, but believed food was better for finger painting.
