Noah went to the Pediatrician for his 18 month check up on Wednesday.
He was a bit cranky because his daddy had to wake him up from his nap to leave. Andrew said he woke him up and he didn't want to leave his sitters. He said Noah just started screaming and crying, so he had to rush him out, so that he didn't wake the other kids!
Noah had a frown on his face the whole ride to the Pediatrician and wouldn't smile for either of us.
Once the Doctors assistant came in we had to strip him to put him on the scale, which made him crying again.
We picked him up and got his diaper back on to get his length, which he didn't want to be still for. Then came the measurement of the head. He screamed and cried.....you would have thought she was torturing him.
After she left Noah and his daddy played on the table a bit and got him in a little better mood...........until the doctor came in.
|Finally a good smile!|
Once he was finished telling us about the terrible twos and the best way to get through them, without loosing your mind, he took a look at Noah. Luckily he did pretty good until he asked to look at his teeth and Noah wouldn't let him, so he took him, which again made him cry......lord was I tired of the crying!
After the exam he said that he was within about a pound and a half of being the perfect weight and height!
Here are his measurements:
24 lbs 10.5 oz---------25-50 percentile
32 1/2 in-----------------50 percentile
19 1/2 head circumference----------90 percentile
My boy has been in the 90th percentile for his head since about 3 or 4 months. The Doctor said, "at least you won't have to special order a football helmet for him." Well, I guess that is looking on the bright side!
Noah was in a better mood once we got home and he had a great time playing with his horse on a stick!
Write you later.....Jordan
