12 month check-up

Finn & I just got home from his 12 month check-up with Dr. Miller. He weighs 22 lbs. 6 oz (50th percentile) & is 31 1/4 inches long (95th percentile). We were happy to see his weight percentile go up from 15th at his 9 month check-up. He loves that solid food! He got 3 shots today & will be going back to get a follow-up flu shot in a month, plus 2 others that he was supposed to get today. Just figured it'd be nice to spread out the "ouchies" as much as possible. He didn't cry for the first shot - just furrowed his brow. But he cried for the second poke & screamed for the third. He calmed down soon enough.

He was definitely showing off the nurse & doctor - jumping, squawking, babbling, crawling at lightening speed...took 2 steps! (Earlier today he walked from Kevin & Outi's love seat to their ottoman: 4 steps, I think.) He even said "bubble" for Dr. Miller, after he'd asked if Finn could say any words that he would understand. :)

His check-up went well & the doctor said we're doing well! Now, we're going to start whole milk. So many new things to try now that he's one!
