15 Months (with Stats)

We took Henry to his 15 month appointment yesterday. The last three moths have been huge developmentally for him. He seems so much older than he did at his birthday. He loves books and all his toys. He plays so well. He walks so much now it seems silly to mention it. He dances, oh how he loves to dance. If there is no music playing, he makes his own just so he can dance to it. He does this hilarious beat box thing, where he goes "oooh, ooh, AHH, ooh, ooh, AHH" Again and again while he bobs his head and stomps his feet. Sometimes he even has a little hip thrust in there. He is a great eater, happily eating whatever we eat. He loves all fruits and veggies. We still rock him to sleep, bu once he is in his bed he almost always sleeps all night. He loves to play with us and give us kisses. His favorite book is "Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?" By Dr. Seuss and he knows the sound that is coming on several pages and will make them himself. He loves to sit in our laps and read or watch Sesame Street or Toy Story. He loves his family. And we love him so.

As for his appointment, the doctor said he was perfect, always good to hear. Henry did insist on emptying his baby bag of all of its contents and handing each item to her. She very happily said thank you for each one. We love her. He also gave he nurse with the shots the stink eye, but he really did very well with the entire process. There was some discussion about the fact that he really isn't using many words yet, but the doctor didn't seem worried. She said it is clear he is understanding what we are saying, and that the words will come. All in all it was a great check-up.

So, the stats:
Height: 32 inches (75th %)
Weight: 20lb 1 oz (5th %) ( no longer need that pesky < symbol!)
Head: 18 3/4 inches (75th %) know...he's tall and skinny. And perfect in every way. This is boring. How long until the snow gets here? I'm ready!


  1. Hmm Tall & Skinny, wonder where he gets that from ;)

  2. Its crazy to think my 8 month old son weighs more then he does and a couple of inches short. Henry looks great though:)

  3. Like there as ever any doubt about it?!

    My sister's friend's daughter (bit of a mouthful, that) didn't talk for ages and then when she finally started she wouldn't shut up!! I bet once he starts there will be no stopping him!

  4. I think it's a boy thing... or maybe that's just my two but C doesn't "talk" half as much as K and that's fine with me. I think i'm going to go batty later on...

    Henry is doing GREAT!

  5. Wyatt does not talk a whole lot, either. At his 15 month he weighed 27 lbs and was 33 1/2 inches. And dude, I am a bad mom - I always forget the head measurement. :-) Hope to have a long overdue playdate soon!

  6. Hi there - thanks for stopping by.

    Yeah - why is it all so tricky.

    Good luck with your decision. My husband is worried if it doesn't work - that I am going to blame him.

    P.S Your little boy is lovely.

  7. Hello. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have an amazing son, and a very inspirational story. Glad to have a fellow scientist on my blogroll.
