Nathan's 18 month checkup

Today was Nathan's 18 month checkup.  He weighs 21 pounds, 10 ounces, and is 31 inches tall.  His head circumference is 49 cm.  This places him in the 10-25th percentile for height, the 5th percentile for weight, and the 75-90th percentile for head circumference.

The doctor is a little concerned with Nathan's weight because he has lost weight since his 15 month checkup.  He's actually a little under what he was at his 1 year appointment.  But she did acknowledge that he has a very high level of activity, which she noticed during the appointment.  He never stops moving, always climbing, running, dancing, moving anyway he can!  So for now we are going to just encourage him to eat more protein.  He has grown an inch taller so he is definitely growing.

Nathan is a very healthy little guy, and reaching all his milestones for this age.  He knows at least 20 words, and few of which I forgot in my last post.  He knows "book" and "bug" and just today he has learned "yes" and "please."  I'm so glad that he has learned yes and I'm hoping to give him many opportunities to say it instead of his almost constant "no."

Tomorrow I'm going to attempt to get some pictures of the kids in bluebonnets, so keep your fingers crossed they turn out!  And a little update on Emma: she recently counted to 100 all by herself!

Nathan is 18 months old!

Today Nathan is 18 months old!  He continues to grow into the sweetest little boy!  He cut two more teeth this past month, his bottom two first year molars.  So only 8 teeth to go, 4 canines and 4 second year molars and we will be done with baby teething!

Nathan has a few more words, like plane, thank you (sounds like "nan knew") and bug.  He likes to say "no" and "mine", much to my frustration.  He loves to give goodnight hugs and kisses and tells us "nite-nite" at bed time.

We play outside quite a bit these days, and he notices every airplane and tweeting bird.  He also notices the ants and roly polies and loves to watch them.  I do have to be careful that he's not getting into fire ants, they seem to be everywhere since the last rain.

Nathan knows quite a few animals sounds now.  Of course he's know "moo" and "bock-bock" for a while, but now he growls for a lion or tiger.  It's really the cutest growl I've ever hear!

Next week Nathan has his 18 month checkup and I'll post his height and weigh then.

Scissor hold

A little bit of wrestling before bedtime.

Helpful big sis

Emma walks Nathan around while he rides the trike.

Chasing chickens!

Nathan loves to chase our neighbors chickens! They don't seem to mind.

Officially a toddler!

Nathan has his first head bruise, so I guess he's officially a toddler!
