15 1/2 Month Stats

Nathan's nurse came to our house last night to check on him and get a weight, height, and head circumference on him. Here's where's he at:

Weight: 17 lbs. 4 oz. (considering a month ago after having the flu he was down to 16 lbs 4 oz this is great!) However, that puts us way in the outer range of not being anywhere close to a "chart". In fact, the nurse joked that Nathan is in "total outer darkness" territory. That's Nathan though and if I'd been through what he has, I'd be struggling too. We'd like to see him at 18 1/2 pounds by the end of July.

Height: 30 inches (10th percentile)

Head: 46.1 centimeters (25th percentile) His head is the only thing that has grown on a consistent basis since he was born. I'm glad to see that because its also showing normal brain growth.

Nathan's favorites: tubtime (particularly splashing with his sister), being held by mom, dogs (he can't talk but he can mimic a "woof" sound), and following his sister around, and babies.

Nathan's dislikes: being weighed, seeing a doctor, going to a stranger, sitting on grass, or being put in the sandbox. You'd think a little boy would love grass and sand, but hopefully that will come.

You're making progress Nathan!

I have been meaning to hop on over and leave you guys a comment! Please come visit tomorrow when you have your appointment. We are in 3082 (I think?!?!) on the O pod. What time is the appointment? We usually have a lot of activity in the mornings with all of the teams rounding, but just pop your head in. See you guys soon (and YAY for continuing to do well at home!!)
