If you look closely at the picture of the Monkey, you'll see that his nose and face are crustified with boogers. Those are hard won boogers because you see, yesterday we went to the doctor and having a nurse look at you is enough to send any 19 month old into a tailspin, right?
We arrived and things were good. Once we heard, "I need Elliott in nothing but his diaper" all bets were off and I can't tell you the last time I saw my little guy panic or cry so hard and so much in such a short period of time. That was until he got 5 shots.
Once we got back into the car and were heading home and I'd heard "mama owie" several times things seemed to be much better.
Here's the report. 28 and 1/2 lbs and 35.5 inches tall. That's the 80% percentile on weight and totally of the charts in height. So off the charts in fact that Elliott is 15 months taller than he should be. Yes, he is as tall as an average 3 year old. Go figure. If you double a boys height at 2.5 years of age you can generally gauge their adult height. Ross has done the math and if my boy grows 4 inches in the next year, he will be nearly 6 feet 5 inches tall as a full grown boy. A mother can only hope.
I just cannot get over how quickly he is growing and turning into such a little man. And, with his super spiffy short hair cut via Grandma's cuttin' corral last Sunday night, he looks like he's 5 - not one and a half.
