Gavin's Check Up

Gavin is 17 months old now and received a glowing review from his doctor today. He is 34 1/2 inches tall and weighs 30 pounds, 3 ounces. That put him in the 100th percentile for height and 95th percentile for weight. His head stayed in the 50th percentile. So, Gavin is still staying on the same projectory for all his stats. Doctor says that she thinks he'll be pretty tall. :-)

In terms of reaching all his milestones, she was very happy with him. We did talk about how he only has a few words in his vocabulary (mamma, dadda, agua, and banana). But his comprehension is really good so we are not worried. She thought he should be up to at least ten words before he turns two. But my guess is that his vocabulary will grow soon. In the mean time, Gavin does well with signing and he certainly knows how to point and grunt to get his point across. So, we'll just keep working with him and hope the words start flowing sooner than later.

Gavin received two shots today but he was distracted at the moment by his dad, so he didn't even cry. What a good boy. He's such a trooper. All in all, a very good appointment.
