18 month stats

We went for Hudson's 18 month well visit this morning. He enters the office, plays with the toys in the lobby (as I cringe thinking about all of the germs he's getting, but it's pretty much impossible to hold an active 18 month old down in your lap when there are lots of enticing things in front of them), then they call us back. He was as happy as he could be until it was time to get weighed and measured. He cried his really dramatic, pitiful, bottom lip out, attention getting cry as the nurse weighed and measured him. As we went back to the exam room, he continued crying as the nurse asked me questions. As soon as she left the room he turned it off. He sat down on Doc's stool and was happy again until Doc came in to do his exam. Needless to say, he cried the whole time Doc was in the room too. Doctor Nesbit said it was quite normal for his age because he's so aware of whats going on. He said that he expected to be Hudson's friend again when he was around 2 1/2. Everything checked out great, and they said that he was ahead of his learning curve based on the things he's doing at this point. He weighed 28 lbs, and was 33 1/2 inches tall. He's in the 80th percentile for both weight and height. We are so thankful to have a healthy boy!


  1. Hooray for a good check-up!

    I hate the lure of the waiting room toys, too. I let K play with my cell phone (which she LOVES but is usually forbidden) because sometimes it's enough to distract her from the big old germfest going on in the corner. Sometimes...

  2. That picture is pitiful! Hampton got to stand on the big boy scale when we went in for his ear infection appointment, and it was so much easier! Yay for a healthy check up!

  3. Karinya- That's a great idea. I will have to try that next time.

    Rebekah- He was pitiful when it was connvient for him. Little stinker!!
    They had him stand on the scale, but he was into a tantrum, and wouldn't let go of Dave, so they couldn't get an accurate weight.

  4. What a pity picture! Congrats for raising a cute and healthy boy!
