Stephan’s 18-month well baby visit was this morning. I was nervous about it for two reasons. 1) Last year at his well baby visit there was a issue with weight gain (that after a significant amount of drama we discovered might have all been unecessry). 2) Stephan was sick several times last January-April and I was worried he’d show up sick with an ear infection or something this January too.
Thankfully my worries were unfounded! God blessed me with a great Dr. visit and a healthy little boy!! Growing like the jolly green giant too. He’s 35″ tall and weighs 24lbs. So he’s above the 95th percentile for height still and gaining weight right on target with where he should be. Tall and skinny like his Uncle Eilert. The Dr. even commented on his happy disposition saying that he’s only like that because he knows his parents love him and feels very safe and secure. I always love hearing I’m doing a good job as a mom since I often feel just the opposite.
