1 year check-up

It was last Wednesday--I apologize for not updating until now! He's doing great--he weighs 22 lbs, 1 oz (he was 6 lbs, 6 oz. at birth, so he has more than tripled his weight); he is 30.55 inches long. The doctor (whom Andrew hasn't seen since his 2 day check-up, since every other appointment has been with the Nurse Practitioner) said Andrew is doing great. He's just above the 50th percentile for height, and just below the 50th for weight.

He's funny--Dr. Manson. Andrew was on the exam table and he was pretty active and Dr. M. said, "No diving without a parachute!" because I think he thought Andrew was going to jump off. Andrew is pretty good with boundaries though--he will crawl around the bed and go to the edge but not go off the edge. Maybe it's just a coincidence.

Anyway, the next appointment is at 18 months.

Yay, I am glad he is doing good! Keegan's getting pretty good at not falling off the edges of stuff too. I used to talk to this girl who had a boy the same age as Hailey. When they were about 7 or 8 months old, we were chatting once and she was like "J just fell off the bed again! You'd think he'd learn after the other times!" I was like :O Ummmmmm you just let an 8 mo old crawl around on the bed unattended?! And expect him to 'learn a lesson' from falling on his head? WTF? She was really weird. We don't talk any more.
