My "big" one year old went to the doctor today...here's what the numbers say:
Height: 28.75 inches - 25th percentile
Weight: 19 lbs, 1 oz - 10th percentile
"Big" may have been an exaggeration! He's a shrimp...but a cute one at that. And super smart. He's already mastered some of the tasks that were listed as 15 to 18 month tasks. Hooray for my super monkey! He also told the doctor "all done" when I picked him up off the table. His doctor was impressed!
He also got shots and blood work done. That was awful for both of us...they made me sit with him on my lap while they drew his blood! Then the vein they thought was good was actually NOT a good vein (he gets that from me!)...and we had to go through the whole ordeal on the other arm! Poor little monkey...he cried big, real tears and it broke my heart.
But now, we're just chillin' at home and he's playing with his new toys. I almost can't believe I made him go to the doctor the day before Thanksgiving! What a mean mom...making him get poked and stuff! He doesn't seem to be holding it against me, tho!
