Seven to Seventieth in Ten

We've come along way, baby! Just 10 months ago, AJ was measuring in the mere 7th percentile for weight and now he's in the whopping 70th percentile! And while he has maintained the 50th percentile for height in the past, this checkup also put him at the 70th percentile.

So here his stats for his 22 month check-up: (We didn't hit an 18 month and we won't hit a 2 year. We just combined the two and I am OK with that!)

Weight: 29.2 lbs
Height: 34.5 in.

He also got a poke (Hep A)... which compared to the entire check-up wasn't much worse, since he screamed the entire check-up. S.C.R.E.A.M.E.D! I was borderline embarassed. I know he isn't my social guy and the docter's office isn't usually the most comfortable place - but man... he let our Dr. know that he was NOT happy with her. And that little stinker was happy and smiling and chatting right up to the point she started examining him. I am thankful that I was able to drop Andrew off at a friend's house, so I wasn't dealing with him as well. Of course, this evening, AJ was all excited to show off his 'dit-ter' ("sticker" or band-aid) to daddy during a diaper change.

As always our Dr. handled him very well and she says he is a healthy active boy. She was much more comfortable with his speech (she was a little concerned at his 15 mo appt., but Andrew also spoke late, so she waited it out). Now she is just looking for two word combinations (again, he is supposed to be doing that now... but isn't quite yet.) I'm not concerned. He is picking up new words and talking more each day that it won't be long. He even tries to say almost anything you ask him too. Asking him to say "Alligator" is hilareous.
