Our Big Monkey


Maddox had his 18 month doctors appointment today and boy is he growing like a weed! He weighs 25 1/2 lbs (just under 50th percentile)and has jumped from the 60th percentile in height to the 75th percentile in just 3 months! I knew he had a growth spurt not that long ago, but I had no idea that much!

I just switched Doctors for Maddox to save ourselves a 40 min. drive each way. The new one is just on the other side of town (1.5 miles away) and she's just as down to earth and I was really impressed by her. Yeah, for good doctors!

While the Dr. was examining him he didn't budge on the table, his arms were down and he was just frozen staring straight at the Dr. like "I don't know why you're pushing on my tummy like that but I'm sure you mean business, so I won't even try to mess with you." He looks fabulous, though, clear ears, straight legs and an all around healthy growing boy.

He's sooo hansome :-) I'm glad he was good for your new doctor...Aloria hates being touched by people she doesn't know...especially doctors. You're lucky.

What a very handsome boy you have! God has blessed you guys, and not just because he's so cute, but healthy and happy too. He is a big guy, but then Kyle is tall. Elijah weighs 25 pounds and he just turned 2!
