15 month update on Robbie

On Tuesday this week I took Robbie to his pediatrician to have his 15 month well visit.  He's still healthy and growing, and here are his stats!

Weight: 27.25 lbs - 84th percentile
Height: 34 inches - 99th percentile
Head circumference: 19 1/2 - 96th percentile

I'm looking forward to the well visits that do NOT include shots.  He got the DTaP, Hepatitis B, and Chicken Pox shots this time.  He usually doesn't react to his vaccinations, but the Chicken Pox shot is a live vaccine, and so it's expected that the child will respond with fever.  That's exactly what happened yesterday - our little guy was pretty miserable and not at all himself.  He slept a lot, was very cuddly and sedate, and weepy.  No appetite.  Today I've noticed some little red spots appearing on his hands and feet, so I'm taking him back in to the pediatrician because they said this is not one of the common side effects.

I am just thankful that I remembered to schedule his visit for early this week, as we could have been dealing with all of this next week right before my C-section!  I am hoping that these health issues resolve themselves in Robbie's little body quickly.

poor little buddy! bummer about the reactions, but sounds like he's growing like a weed!!!

I was thinking this morning while I was cleaning my really dirty kitchen that yours was probably spotless! ha! And, I thought I needed to tell you my experience with this whole 2nd child thing. I thought having a baby in the house wasn't much of a transition. When the 2nd one gets mobile is when it gets really difficult! So, minus the lack of sleep part=), hopefully it will be a pretty easy transition for you! Especially since everything on your to-do list is done!!! =)

so sorry about his bad reactions!! I hope they can sort it all out. And, I can't believe your 15th month old is as big as my 25 month old. Craziness. :)
