Today Hunter had his one year wellness check. He is right on track developmentally and the doctor said he was perfect.
He is in the 20th percentile for weight and 60th percentile for height. The doctor made it clear that it is normal for babies to peak in weight at nine months and drop off at one year, due to an increase in activity. I think at his nine month check up he was 21lbs. Hard to believe since he eats so much! Other than that he had a couple of shots, both of which he took like a champ.
Our pediatrician said she is happy to see that he can say five words (dada, mama, dog, hola, and uh oh) and that she doesnt expect to see that until closer to 15 months. By his next wellness check (15 months) he should likely be walking and saying a few more words. All in all it was a great visit and we are grateful to have a healthy and happy kid :)
