18 month check up

We went to the doctor yesterday. Ben is still above the 98th percentile for his height. He is fattening up, so much so that if he weren’t so tall, he’d be getting chubby. His development is on track. He may not be communicating with many words, but he understands, responds, and communicates in other ways. He does need to work on using a spoon and fork, and we need to get him off his noony/pacifier.

This is a list of milestones we can be looking forward to:
