15 months

on May 24, 2013

Benjamin just had his 15 month (where is the time going????) checkup and weighs 25 lbs, 15 oz (70th percentile) and is 34 in. long (still off the charts for height!!). The dr. said he looks great and is growing like he should be. She is still amazed at how long he is 🙂
Here are your latest Benjamin “facts”:
-Clothes: size 18-24 months
-Shoes: size 4
-Diapers: size 4
-Teeth: 10 total (6 on top, 4 on bottom)
– Sleep: 11 hours at night (8 p.m. to 7 or 7:30 a.m.) and one nap during the day (1 p.m. to 3 or 4 p.m.)
-Words: says Mama, Dada, Dadu (thank you), uh oh, Bye, Bah (ball), Papa, Wawa (water), Yum, Vroom Vroom (sound for car or truck)
-Likes: playing outside, looking at books, listening to music, flipping lights on and off, running, eating, pointing and saying “Oooh”, playing with the phone or iPad, getting his teeth brushed
-Dislikes: being held for longer than a second, peas and carrots (he will eat them but he lets you know he doesn’t care for them), diaper changes (playing music during this has helped), taking something away from him, closing the gate to his playroom.
He has started holding his breath when he is upset or hurt. The dr. assured us that it is normal for some children to do this and that even if he passes out, he will start breathing. It is not something he is doing on purpose and is basically out of his control. It still terrifies us when he does it. The dr. says its a phase so we hope he grows out of it quickly! I’m getting better at anticipating when it might happen. Prayers please that he stops doing this!! He is so happy 99% of the time that it always shocks me when he does it. Oh the joys of having a toddler 🙂 I think he is getting a strong will from his Mama. It is probably payback for when I held my breath for my parents when I was a baby 🙂
Benjamin really is a joy to be around and amazes me everyday. He is learning so much and growing so fast!

Just some light reading while he waited for the doctor to see him:)
