Jett had his One Year Check-up today! He put on quite a show for Dr. Terk, as he was sure that he could, all by himself, manage to scale his way up onto the exam table! He was climbing all over that room, dancing , squealing, he did not know what was coming! Dr. Terk said, "He is an active little thing isn't he? Even more active than sister!" Whew... :)
The sweet boy is 21 lbs and 13 ozs and 31 inches tall. That is eight ozs smaller that Addie at this age, but two and a half inches taller! It puts him in the 50th percentile for height and 25-50th for weight. That is right in line with where he was at 9 months. The doctor asked me about brushing his teeth, but he only has one and a half teeth, so, obviously, not much of a concern at the moment! We are taking care of what we got!
He got three shots, and he did so well, I mean, screamed, yes, but not for long! I think it hurt his feelings more than actual pain. He is very sweet, have I said that before?!? He really like that he got to suck on a "Dum Dum" while I made his next appt!
Praise the Lord for his health. I really am so thankful, and know that it is only by the grace of God that he is so healthy. That is not something to take for granted. And not something that we are promised, we learned that with a scare we had when he was first born!
Dr. Terk asked how many words he was saying, and I said, "Umm...not sure that I would consider any of them words...more like he uses the same syllables for the same things." He'll get there. Quite a different story from his chatter box sister! Don't get me wrong, LOTS of sound, just nothing that anyone but mommy would know what he was saying!
One of my favorite things about him is his love for music. No matter what kind of music, even just Addie singing her favorite "Barbie Diamond Castle" song, he just starts spinning! PRECIOUS!
Jett Daniel, what a year! I've said it so many times before, but WHAT A BLESSING YOU ARE! Thank you for always wanting to cuddle with your mommy, and when you are old enough to read this for yourself, I hope you are still cuddling with me! I love you!
