Sam's 18 month doctor's appointment

This cutie had his 18 month check-up today.  Sure, he climbs up on tables, jumps off chairs, and is generally a handful, but he sure is adorable.  And, per the doctor, Sammy is in great physical health and is hitting all his milestones.  

The only thing we talked about is his apparent dairy allergy.  Or maybe not full on allergy but intolerance.  I guess they usually do the full dairy allergy test at 2 years so, until then, we've switched to almond milk.  We tried Lactaid but he threw that up too leading the doc to believe it may be a real dairy (milk protein) allergy rather than a lactose intolerance.  

Anyways, it's not that fun avoiding cheese and all dairy but we are making do.  Sammy certainly doesn't seem to mind though.  He's as happy as can be.  

And now, his stats:

Weight - 26 pounds, 9 ounces (60th percentile)
Height - 34 inches (90th percentile!)

It's crazy because he seems so much heavier and bigger than Jack was but it turns out he's only about 1/2 pound heavier and 1/2 inch taller.  Crazy.

And, for good measure, a little video of Sam saying hi to you.  (Sorry about the vertical alignment!)
