How big is he?

This is just a quick post to update you on Braeden's last appointment with the doctor.

He went in for his 18-month appointment on Wednesday morning. Braeden weighed in at 26 pounds 6 ounces putting him in the 50th percentile. He's 31 1/2 inches long and still in the 25th percentile for height. His head, all 20 1/4 inches, is still so big it's off the chart! Dr. Nogo assured us that his body will catch up because his head will stop growing so fast at some point. Braeden had one shot, the first in a two-shot series for hepatitis A. He'll have the second shot at his two-year appointment.

So, what else is new? Well, Braeden is in love with trucks. Or 'ucks as he calls them! The doctor asked if he had about 15-20 words in his vocabulary. He doesn't, but she said that's okay. But he does say 'uck and buppy for puppy. And one night at dinner, we had him saying hi! It was the cutest, cutest thing.

When Braeden starts saying bi-o-ott then you'll know he's really talking!! And his head is so big because he's so smart! (comment from his P-pa!)
