Our little guy isn't so little anymore! We had his 15 month Dr. appointment yesterday, and his weight gain is off the charts! Well, off the charts for him--we saw the little graph showing a nice even upward gain for height and head circumference, but his weight totally spiked! I knew he was getting heavy but I never expected that--he still looks so svelte! Well, ok, his belly does stick out but the rest of him still looks long and lean, really! :) No cause for concern, though--according to those growth-chart things, at 27 lb. 8 oz., he's between 75 - 90% weight. He's now 31.5" tall, too. Not too shabby! The above picture was taken about a month ago, but it illustrates his round belly nicely, don't you think?
We've confirmed his fear of enclosed spaces, which I suspected a couple of weeks ago when he suddenly decided he didn't like elevators. He's been in elevators a million times before, but one day he freaked out as soon as the doors closed. Then it happened again. And again. :( Then at yesterday's appointment he started crying as soon as the nurse closed the door to the exam room and wouldn't stop until we switched to a room with a window. Now, as someone who doesn't particularly care for small enclosed spaces too much herself, I completely understand this. But it does make things difficult, and I hope this fear of enclosed spaces does not translate to fear of airplanes since we have a trip to MN planned for mid-August. That could be pretty miserable for us and for anyone sitting near us. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
