Today was monumental for Callum. In his 16 months of life he hasn’t ventured much out of the 25th percentile…beside his head size. Today was a late 15 month check-up and he had grown by leaps and bounds. In fact, his height is now in the 75th percentile and his weight finally in the 50th. FYI: I really dislike the whole percentile comparison game aka my baby is bigger therefore healthier and better than yours. However, for Callum, I felt this a small victory. Not that i am in any hurry for him to grow up, but as he gets bigger he becomes less of a target for his sister. Watch Out Hazel.
Convo with the always entertaining, Dr.Kim and nurse, at today’s appointment
Dr. Kim: “The baby’s hair is so long Momma”
Me: “I know”
Dr. KIm: “Why you not give a the baby a haircut Momma?”
Me: “His father won’t allow it”
Nurse: “Why? Does he want him to have a mullet?!!”
Dr. Kim: “Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, the baby need a haircut momma.”
So there you have it, it must be done……Doctors orders!!!!!
Here he is in deep thought in his adirondack chair by the fire pit
