Luke’s Well Baby and His Response!

So this afternoon Luke and I went to meet our new doctor for the first time. First the statistics:

  • head: 50 cm (still WAY off the charts – but his soft spot has fused, so he’ll be slowing down there!)
  • weight: 11.9 kg or 26 lb 3 oz (he was 24 lbs 15 oz when he was sick so he’s caught up!) – just under 75th percentile
  • height: 31.75 inches or 81 cm – 75th percentile
  • weight for length – 80th percentile

He’s the weight and height of a 17 month old! He had the varicella and prevnar vaccines (chicken pox and the “regular” one he keeps getting). He’ll be getting MMR in 3 months.

The doctor was VERY impressed with him and was shocked at the fact that he’d been put into monitoring for early intervention due to his assessment of his abilities now! He said that Luke’s walking is fantastic for his age, and Luke shocked us both with “I need down” when I picked him up for the shots) – his first three word sentence (he’s been doing the two word ones for a few weeks (i.e. “mommy ball”).

We were showing his tricks (body parts – he knows 7, imitating sounds (animals, people, cars) – he knows 8 or 9). He made his mommy so proud!! We were also advised to steer clear of peanut butter until he’s two – and since it’s never in the house (Tim’s had it once and thought it was :sick: ) it won’t be a problem. He told us that some other allergens are strawberries (which I knew) and melons (which I didn’t!) – but Luke’s fine with both of those! Oh and we found another molar! Missed that one – so he has 11 teeth!!

He was a trooper through the needles – he cried but stopped once we walked out of the room. But I didn’t realize he took the appointment so badly until this evening.

He decided to move out:



Here he is in action (it was too funny – sorry for two videos, but he kept trying to move both at once, and it wasn’t working)
