Baby Luke is no longer a baby.
I suppose he hasn't been a baby for about 6-months now...
...and he's definitely ALL TODDLER!
He had a wonderful well-baby visit yesterday, despite being covered in tiny blisters over hands and feet. (Doc says he saw none in the mouth and doesn't believe it to be hand/foot/mouth disease. Rather, just a result of the gastro-virus we all had last week.)
Drum roll please...
Weight: 29 lbs! (80th %)
Do you recall that this was the baby whose chart was labeled "Failure to Thrive" because he was solely breastfed for the first 6-months and was only in the 3rd percentile for weight?!!! Funny how these things "correct" themselves!
Height: 34" (90th %)
Still not much of a talker, but my little man has great receptive vocabulary. He can follow most simple 1-step directions and can definitely gesture, point, slap, grunt, etc. to get his point across. :) We will revisit the talking issue at 24-months if he is still not using 2-word sentences, but for now the pediatrician is not concerned and finally, for the first time, neither am I. Seems Chris and I have kiddos that just aren't early talkers.
Enjoy the pics! So sad that Picnik is going away!!!
