Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner.

So our pediatrician walks into the room for Alex's 18 month checkup on Wednesday and boisterously announces, "This is a sad visit."

I was like, "Como say whaaa?"

Apparently, after the 18 month visit, there are no more "baby" checkups. He's officially launched into "toddler" status and only goes for annual well visits.


Regardless, time marches on. And since I never did get around to posting his 15 month stats, here's his 15 and 18 month measurements all rolled into one gratuitous, self-serving post.

15 Month Checkup - Weight: 22 lbs. (10-25th %ile); Length: 31 in. (50th %ile); Head: 47.8 cm. (50/75th %ile)
18 Month Checkup - Weight: 22 lbs. 14 oz. (10/25th %ile); Length: 32.75 in. (50/75th %ile); Head: 48 cm. (50/75th %ile)

So there you have it. He's a tall, skinny kid. Not super sure where he gets the skinny part from, but I've encouraged him to ride that train as far as it'll take him.
