Matt's One Year Appointment

We saw Matt's pediatrician on Monday and everything went great, just as usual.

Matt is 27 inches tall, weighs 18 pounds 9 oz, and his head is 44 cm (or 17.3 inches) around. He come in at about the 5th percentile. Still a little guy for his age, but he's growing. And, as our pedi put it, he's certainly well fed.

Poor Matty had to have vaccines on Monday as well. He got all of the usual 12-month shots except for varicella aka Chicken Pox.

Matt is on the verge of walking (he's at the point where we know he could if he wanted to), claps, does some hand actions with certain songs. (Twinkle, Twinkle and If You're Happy and You Know It are two of his favorites.) Matt also know a couple of signs (all done and more are the two most common for him to do).
