Brenden had his 18 month check up yesterday which went very well. No ear infections...and surprisingly he didn't need any shots...he has one final shot on his second birthday and a flu shot in Sept...than he's all done until kindergarten! Thanks to the flu the past weekend he lost a couple of pounds so his weight calculation isn't quite accurate.
Weight-24.6 pounds putting him around the 25th percentile...when in reality he weighs about 26-27 pounds which would have him right up around the 50-60th percentile.
Height-32 3/4 inches putting him in the 50th-75 percentile for height.
Head circumference-93 percentile...some things never change!
His pediatrician was very impressed with his verbal skills and the sentences he is already forming without any prompting. It helped he was put in a very stimulating room with a giant rug on the floor covered with fish, butterflies and other animals...all of which he's obsessed with at the moment. She judged him to have the verbal skills of a child over the age of 2 which was great...since sometimes I feel like we hear more gibberish than real words!
