Recently we took the boys in for their checkups-Jonah's 18 month and Noah's 2 month. We are so grateful for healthy, growing boys and we never want to take this for granted. Here are some recent pics and their stats:
Noah, at 2 months, weighs 13 lbs and is 25" long. He has added 3 inches since birth and has no signs of slowing down anytime soon. At 2 months, Jonah was 12 lbs 13 oz and 24". Noah got 4 shots at his appointment, along with an oral vaccination for rotavirus, which he thoroughly enjoyed, and I think is looking forward to his 4 month appointment when the second dose will be administered. He is a firm believer of the common phrase, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Mmmmm....more rotavirus, please!
Jonah, at 18 months, weighs 27 lbs and is 35" tall, and has 12 teeth. He is very tall for his age and the Dr. thought he must have been wearing his shoes when the nurse measured him, so the Dr. did it again only to find out that he is, in fact, 35". A disadvantage to having a young child so tall is that he can reach just about anything on the desk or kitchen countertops, so a new rule at our house is that he is not allowed to grab knives from the kitchen and hold them at his head (or brother's, for that matter). This joins the growing list of rules I never thought I'd have to voice, such as, "Son, please don't lick the T.V." Needless to say, although he is quite busy, he is never out of our sights for long.
