Then, after we had rested some, the kids were playing outside, and Brentley fell into an ant hill. I immediately grabbed him up and got all the ants off him, but he has about 10 ant bites covering his body :(
Yesterday, we stayed home most of the day. Grace had gymnastics, but that was it.
Today, Brentley had his one-year check up. He weighes 28.2 lbs, so he hasn't even gained a whole pound since his 9 month check up. He weighed 27.6 then. His weight gain is finally slowing down! Now, he has grown 2 and a half inches taller since his 9 month check up. He is not 32.5 inches tall! She said he is off the charts for both weight and height now! Before, he has always just been off the charts for weight, and at the top for height. She said now that he hasn't gained much and has grown taller, his weight and height are proportional to each other on the charts. So that's good!
I love his doctor (well she's a nurse practitioner, but we always see her). I really do, but today, I was disappointed. After she went through all the usual questions, she goes, "You can turn his car seat around now." I was like "Well, I'm planning on leaving it until he outgrows the weight limit, which is 40 lbs." She said, "That's perfectly fine. You can do that. I think the recommendation is 2 years. I haven't switched mine either..." (She had twins about 3 weeks before I had Brentley) I was thinking why would she tell me to switch if she hasn't switched her kids? Then she says, "I haven't switched them because I'm afraid they're going to change the law. I don't want to switch them and then have to deal with switching them back." Are you kidding me?? She's AFRAID they'll change the law... like that's a bad thing?? I mean seriously, being a nurse practitioner, she should be more informed about things like that. If we can't trust these people for accurate information, who can we trust?? Okay, I'm done ranting about car seats (again lol).
I took these at the doctors office today. I would say "fish" and he would say "ishhh" and point to the fish lol. It was so cute!
I love this one. My little model! :)
