12 Month Doctor's Visit!

Jack had his one year doctor's appointment and it was fairly uneventful. The doc said he looked healthy and had great eye contact and smiles. He is a little behind in the areas we thought...talking, fine motor skills with his fingers and mouth (i.e. sucking on a straw). She's not concerned and thinks he'll get it eventually. We switched him over to whole milk which he's taking with no problem. Of course, very soon we'll have to switch from bottles to sippy cups and that might be more of a problem. But we're holding off on that until he's healthy. Oh, that's right. Right after his doctor's appointment he got sick. Super sick. For the first time in his life. Snotty green nose stuff, juicy cough, fever, etc. It's going on now almost a week and I don't really like it. Especially since he has gotten me sick (and John). Don't know if it was the MMR and chicken pox vaccine or if it was just good ol' fashioned play group germs, but, nonetheless, I'm not enjoying it. But we'll be healthy eventually!

And his 12 month stats from the appointment:

Height - 29.75 inches (still 50th percentile)
Weight - 20 lbs, 15 oz (climbing up to the 25th percentile!)

  1. Sounds like he is doing well! Sorry he is sick. We are all getting over colds. Lila's 1 year appt is Tuesday. We haven't yet made the switch from bottle to cup yet either. And she won't drink whole milk or anything but water or formula! Eeek!
