So our well visit went perfectly! Beckham now weighs 22.9 lbs, and is 29 3/4 inches long. He's in the 75th percentile in weight and 50th percentile in height- which is right on target! Our pedi said he's one of her only 12 month olds that has gained weight at this visit. She said usually around 12 months they lose weight because they are so active and developing picky eating habits. But, he gained so that's awesome! He is doing everything that a 12 month old should do and beyond. He's walking, saying two syllable words, eating table food, we have actually been without a bottle for nine days now! He has transitioned to a cup very easily. It doesn't seem to bother him at all. He has six teeth total and she said he's not teething at the moment so who knows when others will pop up. He's even walking backwards! I knew once I started seeing him do it that it had to be a milestone because walking backwards isn't easy- so I asked the nurse and she said Oh yeah! That's a milestone, but not usually until 18 months. Beckham has always been ahead though; he was crawling at six months and walking at nine and a half so I knew he would be reaching other physical milestones earlier than most babies. He's finished with four rounds of vaccines and also had the chicken pox vaccine this visit. As far as food and milk goes, he's supposed to drink around 20 oz of whole milk (we buy organic) and three meals a day consisting of all food groups. But the norm is one teaspoons to one tablespoon of each food group, so he's definitely doing that. I was getting nervous about how much he was eating because the Gerber toddler meals are pretty big and he never eats all of them- or even close actually. He can also have two snacks a day, which we already do. He also had a visit screening and passed, which I was a little nervous about since I am blind as a bat- however, mine didn't show up until sixth grade. So I guess we'll wait and see.
I have to say I felt pretty good leaving this visit, simply because it seemed like we were doing everything right. It was nice to get some conformation on a few questions but overall, we were praised the whole time!
same fence- how did this happen?
