15 Month Check Up

Sorry the updates have been slow coming the last couple of weeks.  I am back to work for a short time to train a new person. 

Last Friday, Matthew had his 15 month well child check up and had to get a few shots.
He weighs 21 lbs 6 oz and is 29 1/2" tall.  He is only in the 10th percentile for both weight and height.

The doctor, however, was impressed at how many words Matthew knows and says.  The doctor said that at 15 months they expect a child to know as least 2 to 5 words.  He asked us how many words Matthew knew and for some reason we always lose count.  We told he we thought between 20 and 30 words.  The doctor says that he is advanced for his age.  So on Friday night we decided to start writing the words down that he was saying.  We are up to 28 words right now.  He is starting to repeat words too!

He is a smarty pants and he know it.  

He loves hamming it up!

love the new background! Kiddo is always in the lower percentiles for his height/weight too. We had speech delay issues though he's caught up now.
