Well, Well, Well

Aidan rocked his well child check today. Turns out, he really is a well child! He weighed in at a hefty 25 pounds. Today was the first time that he was able to be weighed on the big people scale. No mini baby scale for him. He thought it was pretty neat he was bouncing on it trying to make the metal part move. I wish I had my camera! They need to warn me when my kids’ gonna reach such a big milestone! I would have totally had a picture under this paragraph had I known! I could have even used my phone!!! Anyway…he was just a smidgen shy of 34 inches tall. Which measures out to 25-50th percentile for weight and 75-90th for height. That has been his standard since birth–tall and skinny like his Mommy! 😛

He only had to have one shot today, the flu booster. Such a controversial one that flu shot. But we figured since we are traveling so much we’d better be safe than sorry. He was a rock star! One tiny whimper and then it was like nothing happened. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get off the hook next time. He’ll be getting at least his second hep A, and hopefully that will be it. I/we can handle one, four at once is a bit much! One here, one there, now switch legs…oh brother!

Not much else to report. Doc said I shouldn’t worry at all about his flapping because she isn’t. “He’s just excited, and doesn’t have the language yet to express it.” Which in my heart of hearts I knew there was nothing wrong but it never hurts to be reassured. She said he was completely sociable and interacting exactly as an 18 month old should!

Stay tuned for well child May 08.  It’ll be riveting–I just know!

    Go Aidan! Deeder came in at 23lbs, and 30 1/4 inches tall. I was surprised to hear that he’s short for his age.

    Aidan’s doc didn’t have any potty training words? We got some interesting advice, I even called my mom for her opinion on the strange suggestion. 😛

    That’s good to hear about the flapping…doctors not being worried is always nice.

    laura’s last blog post..It could happen to you…
