We took the boy for his 1 year well-child check this morning, and – wouldn't you know it – he is a 22 lb 31 inch beautiful specimen of a boy. He is in the 30th percentile for weight, 50th for height, and his 18 inch noggin is 50th percentile. Everyone we saw this morning made comments about how much energy he has and how he is "certainly all boy!" — we almost had to drug him to get him to sit still on the scale! He had to get some shots, but the doctor gave him an A+ and we aren't due back until 18 months. His checks always seem SO far away when I make the appointments — December seems about the right length of time from now, but 18 MONTHS? – that is a lifetime away!
Things are really starting to change around here — well, starting?, I don't remember a single year in my life that things have changed so rapidly around me. Our baby is rounding into such a little boy – and we are literally chasing after him the whole way.
