Yo Baby!

Yesterday we had Max's first well-baby visit with the new pediatrician. We were pleased with the new office, new doctor and with the less than 5 minutes it took to get from our house to the office!

Max's stats:
Weight 22.5 pounds, 60% percentile
Height: 30 1/4 inches, 80% percentile
Head: 19 1/4 inches, 95% percentile

So yes Bob, he IS a BobbleHeadBaby!
Also the doctor, after looking at me and Mark, did say that after he hits about 2 years his height vs weight will more accurately reflect his genetic destiny. And that his current good health is a reflection of my good health while I have been pregnant and nursing. So apparently chocolate, sausage McMuffins with egg, cake, and other delightful treats are key to good health. You heard it here! :)

The doctor also said Max can now eat just about anything. We will still avoid the high allergy foods, just to be sure, but with no history of food allergies we don't actually have to avoid those. I'll err on the side of caution. But Max is now cleared for dairy and meat. So last night he had his first YoBaby yogurt. Mixed berries. He was a BIG fan. Maybe it is the baby version of yotastic yogurt. You never know. :) The serving size is actually pretty big, for a baby. And he ate almost all of his little pot of yogurt after eating a full serving of cereal, a cube of rutabaga and a cube of carrot, some grape quarters, and some blackberry quarters. He also tried rice rusks for the first time and demolished them. So that is another excellent food for taking on our trip. And he didn't make a huge mess with them like he did the first time he had an arrowroot cookie. All in all it was a good day for foods.

His birthday party is today and we'll let him have a funfetti cupcake to celebrate. But first it is time to make some waffles for breakfast!

His stats are similar to what Jake's were at that age; they say you can guess their adult height by doubling their height at age 2.

That's great he's eating a bunch of different stuff now; that makes things a lot easier.

The party was a blast!
