18 Months and he just keeps growing!

The Munchkin had his 18 month checkup at the Dr. today. Naturally he was like a tornado in the exam room and tried destroying everything before the Dr. came in.

Officially he's 35 1/4" inches (98th percentile. Again!)
And he weighs 27.6 lbs (77th percentile. This is huge! He's never been out of the 50 or 60th percentile for weight before.)
But what's really amazing to me is that he's grown 1 1/4 inches in the last 3 months. His last checkup was July 6 and he was 34 inches exactly. No wonder I can't keep this kid in clothes! Part of me is proud of my boy because he's getting to be so very grown up. And part of me just misses my baby who liked to cuddle. *sigh* I guess that's just part of motherhood.

Be very grateful that he's such a HEALTHY boy! Davy was so skinny that the Dr.'s always made me feel like a bad mother.
Gideon sure is a cutie pie! Is he in nursery now?

These are all things I have to look forward to next summer. I'm already starting to miss my baby, but it's fun to see him learning and growing. Gideon is a cutie.
