Saturday morning, I went to make coffee and I came back upstairs to my sleepy heads in bed! I think this picture sums up Logan perfectly...Laid Back! As soon as I saw him, I knew I had to try to get a picture of this. Legs wide open, tummy hanging out, remote close by and milk within arms reach. He's just adorable!
We had his 15 month check up yesterday and I'm happy to report that everything is perfect! I, of course, went in with my list of worries and concerns and was reassured that he was right on track and developing perfectly.
He was 25 lbs. 12 oz, and 31 inches long. He is about 50% for height and 65% for weight. He still has a big old noggin at 95%, but at least it is on the charts now. Apparently, it was off the charts at 12 months! We joked that it is just all that brain in his head.
One of my concerns was his speech. Logan clearly says Mama, Dada, and ta (what ever that is). Dr. W reassured us that this was okay. She said at 18 months, they will ask the same question to see if he is saying 5-10 words. She explained that it is more important that he is understanding what we are saying. He can follow one and even two step commands, so we are doing fine. We discussed that he clearly understands what we say, since he has the ability to shake his head "no" when he answers something we ask him.
We also discussed his eating habits, milk drinking and nursing. We've noticed that Logan's eating has slowed down the last week or so, and Dr. W told us that it is pretty common at this age to become a little uninterested in food. She said as long as he is still drinking milk and eating at least one good meal a day we are good. He is definitely doing this, so we aren't going to worry. I told Dr. W that we are still nursing two times a day, but I knew that weaning would have to been in our near future. One thing I really like about her is that she has two young boys, and nursed both of them, so I feel like she can relate to me. She reminded me that although he is probably not getting much milk from our sessions at this time, the emotional benefits are still there. She encouraged me to nurse for as long as we want. She said when we are ready to stop, then we should stop.
I have really been struggling with this. I know there is a point when society says that a
I couldn't be more proud of my son, or my family. I am so in love with my life and can't imagine my life without my boys!
P.S. Do you think he needs a haircut? I know, I know...we are going this weekend
