18 Month Check-up

Today was Calvin's 18-month appointment. His stats were:

Height: 33.5 inches - 83rd percentile
Weight: 29lbs - 85th percentile
Head: 20 inches - 98th percentile

They gave him three shots in his thighs. The doctor gave him a stethoscope and tongue depressors to play with so he was semi-happy until the nurse punctured his leg, and then he cried and looked at me like I had betrayed him. So we took him home and let him eat a Taco Bell cheese wrap on the bed while he watched cartoons.

Then he took his band-aids off and switched them up, sticking them all over his body. He was a bit fussy until we gave him some pain-killer and put him down for a nap, but then he was sweet and happy the rest of the day.
They also did an autism screening, which he passed with flying colors. Looks like he's developing right on target and is a perfectly happy, healthy little boy.
