Well, we had Mr. Anderson's 18 month checkup this morning...and...he's still little. Haha...we knew that!
He did great at the checkup and just got 1 shot. He cried during the shot, but once I stood him up he was back to laughing. His eardrum, which ruptured just over a week ago, is all healed up and he just has a little fluid left. We hope to go at least another 18 months before sick visit #2.
He may be small, but he is doing great on his development and is closer to the 2 year old range on most of the developmental aspects they check at a well check. He can name and point out several body parts, used his first 2 word combination this past weekend, is running, climbing and throwing wonderful temper tantrums.
He's 23 pounds (all the way up to the 20th percentile!!) and 30 inches...holding steady in the 5th percentile. So much for our full-term baby being our big one.
For reference, Owen was 23 pounds 12 oz and is 32 inches tall...in the 25th percentile for both at 18 months. So, they are pretty close in size. I think Anderson eats better than Owen did, but is much more active...maybe that's the difference.
