18 month check up

Carter had his 18 month check up the other day and he's healthy and doing well!

Height: 31" (16th percentile)
Weight: 22 lbs 12 oz (15th percentile)
Head: 87th percentile (haha)

As you can see he's still small. But, this are some of the highest percentiles for weight and height he's ever had. And his head continues to be in the 80th percentile. The pediatrician said he's doing well. He's excelled at his gross motor skills; he can walk really well, run, jump with both feet off the ground (she said this usually isn't accomplished until 3 years old). So now it's time to really work with him on his fine motor skills. What we're doing with him is coloring, teaching him to use utensils, and playing with smaller blocks and toys.

She was really impressed with his language development. He says 20-30 words which is above that of the average 18 month old. Half the words a stranger wouldn't be able to understand, but I know what they mean. Lol

And so, now I'll leave you with some pictures;
