One Year Appointment

This picture is actually from yesterday, but tearful, betrayed expression pretty much portrays how Luke looked at the end of his 12 month appointment today. Poor little thing. Here are his stats for all of you keeping track at home (i.e., my mother):

  • Length: 31.5 inches long/90th percentile (he was 21.5 inches when he was born)

  • Noggin: 18.5 inches around/50th percentile (14.5 inches at birth)

  • Weight: 22 lbs 8 oz/50th percentile (9 lbs at birth)

So same percentages as usual, and Luke is tall and "skinny." (I use ironic quotation marks because this boy has some big ole thighs. Does that mean I'm "skinny" too? Hee hee.) But to put things in perspective, here's this little guy a year ago today:

Wow. Just... wow.

Luke was a very good boy at the doctor. Did he cry? Oh yes... poor little angel got four shots. But the second he got in his carseat, he had a nice little power nap. And we're about to snuggle so he can settle down into a niiiiice longer nap this afternoon. I can hope, right?

That's all for now, but stay tuned all weekend for birthday soiree pictures! Party 1 of 2 takes place tomorrow, so look for pictures in the next couple of days. Enjoy your holiday weekend, everyone!
