Lessons from his 15 month checkup

I took Alec to his 15 month checkup this morning and here is what we learned:

He weighs 24.8lbs (55th percentile)

He is 33 1/2 inches tall (97th percentile....WHAT?!?)

He does NOT like to sit, lay, crawl or even touch the exam table.

He is strong and can escape 2 people holding him down for shots.

His lungs work fine, the doctor from across the building told me so.

He does NOT like waiting in the exam room, at all.

He does like to show his doctor where the door is, pointing at it so she'll leave.

He does NOT like stickers or band-aids.

He does like mommy's hugs, a lot.

He gets over things quickly, thank God!

Don't let this sweet pose fool you, he's not a patient patient.

  1. Bwahaha! Lovely dr visit, huh? At least he's a healthy boy!

  2. Ahh yes, I can vividly remember the Dr. visits at that age and I recall a very similar scenario! Don't you just love how everyone has to comment about it too? I'm guessing he will be tall and skinny :)
