One year check-up and stats

We had our one year appointment with the pediatrician today, so here are the latest stats:

  • Height: 31.5 inches (92nd percentile)
  • Weight: 21 pounds (24th percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 18 inches (21st percentile)
So he's growing just fine! He also had a barrage of vaccines: MMR/Varicella/Hepatitus A and his second flu shot of the season. I am always impressed by the expertise of the nursing assistants who administer the shots: they team up and time the shots for 2 rounds of 2, so Elmer only feels two pricks even though he's getting four.

Home early with a sick boy. 23Jan13

Elmer's had a nasty head cold this week, but he's doing much better today. He's not nearly as congested and is only coughing occasionally, so I think he's on the mend.
