15 month visit!

Today we went to see Dr. Chang for our 15 month visit. (or rather Monday we went)

Weight: 23# 5oz (25-50%)
Height: 31" (50%)
Head 48.5cm (75-90%)

So height and weight are based on the Formula Fed baby charts. It's a little annoying that the doctors don't use the breast fed baby chart. So his %'s would be higher on the bf charts. It's not usually a big deal, but it did make me have to go in for weight checks b/c he leveled out sooner (as bf'ed babies do) and that caused this Mama some unneeded stress.

I love that Olof brought up the bf versus ff chart at the visit. He totally rocks!

Henrik is also so close to walking it is just silly! He'll take a few steps here and there, but has this tendency to lean way back (we're talking almost horizontal) because he thinks it is funny when you 'push' him. So we hope he'll be a walking machine when we get back!

I'm so happy to get out of this horrible heat! Seriously it's now 10 days in a row of temperatures over 100F and that is just icki. Good luck to those of you stuck here.

He has recently rediscovered the baby swing.

He has also decided to crawl on his knees when he feels like it.


  1. hope you guys have an amazing trip! i'm jealous! annie still likes to get in a baby swing when we got to a friend's house. of course she never liked it when she was a baby!

  2. Kristen: Henrik never cared much about it when he was little either. How funny the kiddos are!

  3. LOL the baby swing picture is too funny. I thought you were going to say that it was an old picture. Last time I put Mya in hers, she nearly jerked her arm out of socket grabbing onto the side and making it come to a sudden stop! That's when we had to put it in the attic. ;) Have a great trip!!
