I knew it was too quiet...

I turned around for 5 seconds to get a washrag and then he looked like this.


On to other things...

If I were to start a new post now, I would title it "He's Not Just Big." Why, you ask? Henry went for his 15 - 18 month check up today. He is currently just about 16 months. Sigh. Here are his stats:

Height: 33 inches
Weight: 35 pounds
Head: I can never remember this number, but he jumped from the 70th to the 90th percentile

Anyhoo. I relayed some distress over my son's big-ness to the pediatrician, because, well, you know, am I feeding him too much? We all know how good (crazy) an eater he is but am I making it worse by how much he's eating? I just don't want him to be unhealthy. Well, Mr. Pediatrician kind of chuckled at me and said that there are a lot of toddlers that eat more than Henry and are just smaller. He reassured me that eventually his metabolism will catch up and he'll plateau to a more age appropriate size. :) He also reminded me that Henry is proportionate. He's not just heavy, he's tall. Oh yeah. Maybe all the heavy lifting is going to my head. Sweet Sarah, faithful friend as always said that a lot of it must be muscle b/c he can squat so well. This is one of the reasons we all love Sarah. Always finding the positive possibility. Well, all I can say is "Praise the Lord" for my happy, healthy baby! Toddler. ACK!

Oops! This is longer than I planned! Please people, do not think I am obsessing over this. I think it is rather humorous (since the doctor confirmed that Henry is, in fact, doing just fine, thank you) and I just like to go on about things. It's just me!

I'm glad your pediatrician is putting your worries to rest. and I love the pictures! YOu have a full-fledged toddler! Make sure he doesn't know how to dial 911.

Henry is officially heavier than Nathan... wow, that's amazing. However, the last time I lifted Henry I kinded of wondered, he is definately a linebacker in the making. He is a solid boy and perfectly healthy, the outcome of a great mama.(: And a very tall daddy.

He looks great and as mishievous as ever!
