5 Months and 18 Months

I took Steven and Michelle in for their 4 and 18 month visits. They were originally scheduled for a few weeks ago, but I rescheduled once I realized that they were on the same day as our trip to visit Auntie E and that the 4 month shots were the only ones Steven reacted too.

Anyway, they are both doing great and growing right on schedule. Michelle weighed in at 15 lbs, 2 ozs (50-75%) and measuring 25.5" (75%). She's pretty much the same as Steven was when he was that age. Steven weighs just over 29 lbs. (same as he did at his last visit earlier this month), and is 32". That puts him in the 75-90% for weight and 50% for height. I think his 14 month visit was the one where he moved to being in a higher percentile for weight than height.

At 5 months, Michelle
  • Laughs hysterically
  • Enjoys her cocoa butter massages (instead of screaming through them!)
  • Discovered her feet and loves to put them in her mouth
  • Pulls off her socks
  • Sits in her bebe pod
  • Plays with her toys
  • Puts everything in her mouth
  • Drools like crazy
  • Loves her big brother
At 18 months, Steven
  • Is in love with monkeys
  • Is in love with trucks
  • Loves playing outside
  • Listens to Raffi at every opportunity
  • Dances to Raffi
  • Says his name when asked what it is
  • Eats as many eggs as he can
  • Has over 73 words in his vocabulary (and knows at least 11 animal sounds)**
  • Dotes on his little sister and watches out for her

**I made a list of words that he says (in the right context) when I was at work the other day. I have a very very boring job.**

Becca, I meant to tell you, I asked my pediatrician about eggs and if there was a limit to how many Taeya could have and she told me "no." I said I'd heard they could get too much protein and she said that they used to think that but that's not the case. I thought I'd share that with you as I know Steven loves his eggs. Taeya likes hers too but we don't eat them every day. Just thought I'd pass it on so you could have it as food for thought.
