Marcus saw the doctor today for his twelve-month well-baby checkup. I normally let Daddy post about the stats of the doctor visit, but this time I'm going to do it. Nyah!
He got shots... one in each arm, which he handled very well. He cried for a bit, but was easily comforted with his sippy cup of water.
Normally, babies start drinking whole milk once they hit one. We tried with Marcus, but he started spitting up again. He did the same with regular formula way back when, so we have been giving him soy formula. So, no suprise here, the doctor recommended switching to soy milk.
So the numbers:
Weight - 23 lbs., 2 oz. (55%)
Length - 31 3/4 inches (95%)
Head - 18 1/2 inches (70%)
Summary, he's a lean, mean thinking machine! He's not walking yet, but the doctor seemed to think everything was progressing well in that area. And he has most of his teeth, including the molars. The doctor even noticed that the eye teeth (the only ones toward the front that haven't come in yet) are starting to bud.
All in all, a healthy happy baby, despite the shots. Just what a mommy wants to hear. :-)
