Hamilton and I went to his 15-month appointment this morning. He lit up the office talking and flirting with the receptionist, other patients, and the nurse. However, as soon as the doctor came in, he got shy. His doctor is a young woman with a soft voice and a great way of dealing with kids. There's no explanation for his shyness; maybe he knew he wouldn't love the physical exam. He was skeptical of the ear and eye check, and the belly check made him cry though I think he was just frightened because of the uncertainty of what was happening.

He had a great checkup overall, weighing in at 25 pounds. He's 31 inches tall, and he's in the 50th percentile for both height and weight. Hamilton did well with his one vaccination, but I'm so glad he doesn't have any more until he's four.

  1. On Damien's 15-month appointment, he WAS the 100th percentile on head size. That's my boy!
