Birth Weight/Length: 4 lbs 15oz/18 in
Current Weight/Length: 30 lbs/35 in and I think the head circum was 48 in. He is in >95th % for height and 90th % for weight.
How did the appt go? I fill out a questionnaire at each appt about what he can and can't do. I had a lot of No's in the communication section but she wasn't concerned. She just mentioned problem solving skills since I don't see Leo using a stick to get to another toy out of reach sort of thing. His weight is ok but she wants us to change his milk to 2%. And she was impressed with all his teeth. Leo was fine in the waiting room but got upset once he got to the exam room. Even cried getting weighed. He was low in iron again but barely. I'll just try harder with his food, he's been soooo picky lately. I got a list of how to know he is ready to toilet train. And I learned that he can't have any gummy vitamins until 2 yo.
What my LO is up to (Favorite activities, words, foods, etc): Leo's favorite activity is climbing on chairs (including the toilet!). He likes to do things on his own: drink from the water bottle, spoon feed himself, wipe his hands and mouth, "brush" his teeth, put baby lotion on his belly, even tried to wipe himself when I changed his diaper this morning He doesn't say many words but likes the "mmhmm", "uh-oh", "oh no" exclamations. And he loves to eat. Eggs, mac n cheese and avocado are his top favorite.
AW that baby! I'll have to come back and add some good pics.
Birth weight/length: 7 lb 8 oz/21" I think? Such a long time ago now. Current weight/length: 30 lb 10 oz/35 1/4" long. She's the size of the average 2.5 year old! How did the appt go?: really well. She got the chicken pox vaccine and didn't cry at all. The doc said she is smart and mature for her age. Ch is huge, height is a bit higher percentile than weight, but both over 90th %. The doc emphasized healthy eating and being conscious of sugar intake which I am, but good reminder. She also emphasized that since Ch is big, just make sure that other people don't try to treat her older than she is and be conscious of her emotional development. What my LO is up to (Favorite activities, words, foods, etc.): her vocab is great. Lately in the mornings she likes naming everything around her- "yight!" For light, "seepy tam!" For crib aka sleepy time. And sometimes she'll point to the kitchen and list all the foods she can think of "nana! Muk! Apple! Hot!" She likes pretending to feed her babies, reading books, going to the park, bathtime, and singing songs (especially loudly). She's been having tantrums lately but they get worse when she's growth spurting/teething (still has a few left to go) and then she gets back to normal. She still hates naps but has started going to bed at night without crying. She's still a boob monster and she still hates plain WCM. But she is also a lot of fun and surprises me every day - last night "hi mama! Hi titi! Hi seepy! (Waves hi to her crib)" haha. AW that baby! Ahh I feel like I should put a fancy one here, but how about just some from today:

bkmama0, DH has a nephew that is big for his age. And big is an understatement. I felt bad when I'd get annoyed at his behavior (taking toys away from Leo). I have to remind myself that he's still a baby too. I met him last year when he was 2, he could pass for a big 5 yo for reals.

How did the appt go? She was not a fan of the doctor or the corpsman. Did not want to be weighed or assessed. Lol. Other than that the appt went well. Super happy with her growth curve. The only thing they said was if she doesn't have more words by 20 months then I need to bring her back in for further evaluation.
What my LO is up to (Favorite activities, words, foods, etc): She loves blowing bubbles and digging in the dirt with her shovel. Favorite foods are yogurt and cheese. Words include: bubbles, dog, again, momma, dadda.
How did the appt go? great the doctor says he is exceeding the milestones!
What my LO is up to (Favorite activities, words, foods, etc): LO loves to dance, loves giving kisses and hugs, loves being outside and playing with the water hose...he loves to say mommy and dada, also starting to say Mema (my mom) Papa (my dad) and he says Mama for Grandma (MIL), kitty, puppy, bye bye, and many other words...he loves chicken and pasta...
