I'm not sure there is a worse sound in the world than your child crying the "mom, why did you let that lady stick that awful needle in my thigh?!" cry after well-baby shots.
Thursday, we had Seth's fifteen-month check up. He is still a lil peanut. 21 lbs., 4 oz. and 31.5" tall. He is well on track developmentally; advanced, even. (So apparently, my grandmother can rest well; she was concerned Seth wasn't talking enough, but according to the pediatrician, his vocabulary of spoken words is greater than expected.)
I knew long before Seth was born that an attempt to keep a traditional baby book would only set me up for failure, so I'm going to use this post to document where he is at right now.
Favorite things: wresting with Daddy, being outdoors, pushing his toy lawnmower, Tonka trucks, going for car rides, and playing with his friend Maddox.
Snacks: taking a break from cheese, animal crackers, and peaches for pretzel sticks, granola bars, and freezer pops.
Words: truck, bath, go, duck, diaper, banana, Daddy, Mama, Nonna, juice, noodle
He is learning something new, it seems, each day. He loves to help me unload the dishwasher, load the dryer, pick out his clothes, brush my hair, open the garage door, and most recently help with his car seat buckle!
And since he has also become a gem in the nap department, I need to take advantage of the current peace and quiet and get to changing sheets and towels for Doug and Sara's brood!
