18 month well visit

Today was Henry's 18 month well visit.

Before we get into the details of the visit, let me say that I am very happy to report that it has been weeks and weeks since we'd been to the doctor's office. It was nice to be there and hear from the ladies who work there, "My goodness he's getting so big! Its been a while since we've seen you guys!"

Dr. Q gave us an enthusiastic thumbs up today. Henry is doing great. He's had a bit of a growth spurt and his height is inching back toward the 75%. His weight is still in the 50%. Those two statistics seem remarkable to me. I mean, have you seen this little guy's tummy?! His noggin is still on the large side. That's good, means his helmet will fit well.

There aren't any major milestones. But here's a rundown of some highlights:

1. Henry can now be introduced to peanuts (PB&J, here we come!). He is now free to eat anything we eat. Yummy.
2. It's time to take his first potty out of its box and put it in the bathroom. Nothing really more than that--no pressure, no potty time. Just have it around.
3. His language is the next to take off. Ms. Anna, his head teacher called him a parrot today. He repeats everything. Some new favorite words: outside, up, truck, bus, all done, bike, and he keeps counting with his "nines."

We are so thankful for a healthy and thriving boy. We try not to take a day of his health for granted. What a blessing he is!
