I will go ahead and post about Grayson's 12 month check up today. When we were called back I stripped him down to a clean diaper. I went to lay him on the scale and he wasn't much for it. He wanted to hold onto me while laying. I was able to get a few pictures of him on it. I still remember laying him on the scale when he was one week old and he weighed 8lbs 9oz. He was so tiny. Now 14lbs later he weighs 22lbs 9oz. My big boy. The nurse measured him and he's 30 inches long. His head circumference is 18 3/4 inches. He's in the 49 percentile for his weight, 49 for his height, and 80's for his head. He's actually when up for his weight. Usually he's around the 17 or 19 percent. He's went down for height but that's okay. Dr. Whit said once again I'm doing a great job. He said Grayson is looking great.

Prior to being called back there was a lady in the waiting room who asked how old Grayson was. I told her he was 12 months and she replied "Oh he is so small. I guess it because my little girl is so big." Her little girl is 9 months old. I was a bit put off by the comment. Grayson was her size when he was the same age. People don't think how their comments come off sometimes. She's also walking. I couldn't believe it when I saw her toddling. The mother said she started walking when she was 7 months old. Its amazing how all children develop differently.

Here's a picture of my little man awaiting to see Dr. Whit.

He was patting on his belly in this picture.
