|15 months old|
|I'm smarter than you think!|
|Who do I look like?|
20lbs, 8 ounces. That means he gained almost a pound in three months. (After a year old, kids starting gaining weight much less rapidly!) He is at the 16th percentile for weight and the 34th percentile for height at 30 5/8th inches. His largest percentile is at 55th which is for the circumference of his head. Sorry buddy, but that comes from Mommy's genes! The doctor also said that everything about him checks out healthy and that he's doing great! (Of course he is! :) He did receive one shot today, the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and I postponed the second one that was scheduled for today, the varicella (chicken pox). I decided to wait on getting both at the same time because the MMR is one vaccine that has a high chance of having a side effect. Generally, side effects occur 10-14 days after the shot is given. So, since it is very unlikely that he will come in contact with anyone with chicken pox in the next six weeks, I figured I would give his little body only three diseases to learn to fight off instead of four!
|Can you guess what I'm looking at?|
Eliel loves to play with legos and blocks and can play for about 5-10 minutes on his own. After that, he comes looking for Mommy or Daddy. If he's playing on his own longer than 15 minutes, it's probably because he's into something he shouldn't be! He still loves cars and trucks and was recently introduced to Adam's VW bug. We also spend a lot of time at the front door on garbage days watching the trucks take our garbage. Eliel continues to love books and has started bringing me some of his favorites to read. His current favorites are 5 Little Monkeys and 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo.
I could go on and on about my little guy but I hope I've given you a good update on him this month. With school being out soon, I know we're going to start having lots of new experiences! Stay tuned!
