Eighteen Month Checkup

Jonathan had his 18 month check-up today with Dr. Lu. Jonathan had a great time trying to destroy the office while we were waiting on Dr. Lu. For the first time, I didn't bring the stroller in. That might have been a mistake. He is so inquisitive and in to everything! Jonathan just loves Dr. Lu though. He has such a gentle calm manner and always makes Jonathan feel at ease.

As usual for Jonathan, he is at the 50th percentile for weight and above the 95th percentile for height!! He weighs 27 pounds 12.5 ounces and is 35 1/2 inches tall. My baby is almost THREE FEET TALL!! I cannot believe that. And I wonder why my knee hurts with him sitting on my hip. The check-up went really well. Dr. Lu said all looked good. Jonathan did have to get one immunization. He was not impressed and definitely not happy with the nurse. He immediately pulled the band-aid off his leg, and then walked out of the office telling everyone he had a "boo-boo."

Dr. Lu also said we could go ahead and turn Jonathan's car seat around. He is in a convertible seat that is rated to 30 pounds in rear-facing. The car seat experts at Children's Hospital had recommended that we keep him rear-facing as long as possible for safety. The problem now is that he is so long that his little legs are all bent up in the seat. Dr. Lu said it was ok to go ahead and turn him around. So I am finally ready to concede the point. We are going to turn the seat around tomorrow. I wonder what Jonathan will think about seeing where he is going for the very first time?
