15 month appt

Luke had his 15 month appt last Wednesday and I thought I'd post the stats:

Height: 32 1/4" (80%)
Weight: 27 1/2 lbs (86%)
Head: 49.7cm (97% - yep, still a big noggin')

The appointment timed out well because he just hadn't been himself - not sleeping, cranky, just wanted to sit with his blanket, etc. I told someone earlier that day that if it weren't for the fact that he had tubes in his ears and that they weren't draining, I'd say he had an ear infection.

Yea, turns out I was right - his right ear was infected - just not draining yet. He was a mess most of the appointment, and had a low grade fever so he got out of his shots that day. (Maybe all part of his plan??)

We talked about his words (on track), his eating (picky, but not 100% unusual. She said that toddlers don't have much control over things and one thing they can control is if they're going to eat something. We're supposed to try what we're eating for 10-15 minutes, but if he won't eat it then move on to what he WILL eat - yogurt, crackers, mac & cheese, granola bars, etc. If we make a big deal out of it, it will become a big deal and we'll all be stressed. It should come with time and one of these days he'll surprise us and want some fruit.)

I also took in a picture of his legs from last week to confirm that it was eczema - and yep, it is. Apparently outside/heat/grass triggers his. Luckily it doesn't seem to bother him (itchy wise) so we just apply cortizone in the bad areas, and moisturize his skin daily.
