Jake's 18 month appt

We had it on Wednesday this week (I really can't get on here much during the week anymore :(). Everything looks great! It's so awesome to hear your kid is the quintessential 18-month old even though he was a preemie. He's perfectly on track with everything, except the words. They aren't worried though--she said they look for 3-5 words by 18 months and I think he has 3 and I still adjust him to 16 months anyway. Smile They also did an autism assessment that I guess is standard now at 18 months and he shows zero signs of being on the spectrum so that was good to know (I wasn't worried, but hey, its nice to feel validated!).

Anyway he's a whopping 20lbs 14ozs lol. He eats ok most days, he's just SO ACTIVE. I can barely keep up with these boys! Smile So he's like 5th percentile for weight and 40th for height.

WOOHOO for a healthy Jake!!! Makes me teary, even 18 months later. Smile
