Parker's 15 Month Well Visit


He's getting a little big for this scale:). It is so hard at this age to keep them out of stuff at the doctor's office. I hate for them to touch stuff but he wouldn't let go of the rolling chair.
He loved his new Clifford book.
He likes finding the dog on each page.
This morning was Parker's 15 month well child visit. I can't believe it was already time for this appointment. Time seems to be going by so fast! He did a great job at his appointment and was a little performer. He was dancing and showing his little jump move for Dr. Greenfield. He weighed 28.4 pounds and was 33 inches tall. He is in the 95% for height and weight and the 50% for his head. He had to get three shots and he was not happy but got over it very quickly. The worst part was he had to get his blood drawn to check for lead and his iron levels. The lab is on the same floor as the doctor so we went right after but it was a little hard with Coop and Park. Coop was messing in everything and I had to basically pin Park in my legs and hold his arm perfectly still. He rarely cries but when he is mad he lets you know. He did not like it at all. I am thankful the appointment went well and we go back at 18 months.

At 15 months Parker is quite a busy little boy. He loves to run, climb, and play. He is loving being outside and actually throws a little fit when he has to come inside. He loves to swing and play with balls. He is still eating baby food but eats a variety of other things. He is liking milk more and more. He loves fruits and his favorites are bananas, strawberries, and watermelon. He also loves green beans. At this point he is not a huge fan of meat but will eat chicken sometimes. He is a loud little guy. He is always making noises and telling me what he wants. He is very expressive when he talks. He says several words, mama, dada, hi, hello, by, uh oh, all done, shoes, ball, woof for dog. He also loves music and is a great little dancer. He will try to sing along to songs, it's too cute. He follows directions really well. He is always bringing me the phone when it rings and his shoes when we are getting ready to leave. He is a big helper too. I would say he is a big Mama's boy and really wants me to hold him at night. I can't say I'm sad about this! He still has 4 teeth on top and 3 on the bottom but I feel like the 4th should be popping through any time. He is wearing 24 months in clothes and some things are 2T. He is tall and some things fit but won't stay snapped. We are all crazy about Parker and are so thankful for his sweet life. We love you Parker!
