Why Adam wants to go to the Doctor
Adam: I want to go to the doctor!
Me: Do you want to get a shot, like Matty did?
Me: Ok. Do you want to see how big you are?
Me: Ok, what do you want to do at the doctor?
Adam: I want to get a camera in my butt, like you did!
Cue hysterical laughter.
Matthew's 15 month appointment went pretty well. He of course is very healthy, passed all developmental milestones with flying colors, and even said "doctor" for the doctor!
However, we now have to go in every six weeks, because he did NOT pass the weight test. He only gained about 6 ounces, since the last appointment, and is only in the 5th %tile. I'm not sure what else to do for the kid. He eats like he's never eaten before, every single time he eats. He has a more diverse pallet then any toddler I know. He is just tiny. He is only 30 inches, too! So, I wouldn't expect him to weigh more than he does, because then he would be obese.... right?
I'm not too worried about it. He's healthy. He's happy. And who cares if he's tiny!?!?!
