My 15 Month Well Baby visit with the pediatrician was yesterday, and guess what?
I'm a well baby!
I had a great time exploring the toys and murals in the waiting room. Mommy and Daddy are glad, though, that we've never had to sit out there for more than 5 mintues.
Here are my stats:
Weight- 19 lbs 15.5 oz (10th percentile)
Height- 31.5 in (80th percentile)
Head- 18.25 in (60th percentile)
Mommy asked Dr. Hull what she thought about the possibility of it not being a good idea to delay introducing high allergen foods to toddlers. Dr. Hull said she has been hearing a lot about this idea, and that in countries with a peanut-heavy diet (Thailand, for instance) there is a very low incidence of peanut allergies. With this information in mind (and knowing that our family does not have a history of peanut allergies), Dr. Hull gave me the green light for peanut butter! Mommy is super stoked about this development...that woman just loves her PB.
Dr. Hull also talked to Mommy and Daddy about how I was doing with discipline. They told her that I respond pretty well to "no", "uh uh", and redirection...but that I do throw little fits when I am extra frustrated.
"The fits only last for a few seconds, though, " Mommy proudly declared.
Dr. Hull's response was, "Really? Huh. Well, they'll get longer."
If my reaction to Mommy making me come inside for a bath tonight is any indication...that pediatrician is one smart cookie.
