15 Month Checkup

Hi everyone,

Matthew and Thomas had their 15 month check up today and both boys are very healthy. Thomas needs to go back to a physical therapist for this torticolis (his neck issue) but otherwise both are ahead of schedule on developments! Thomas grew more than Matthew since the last appointment and is now increasing the difference gap. I can't believe that Thomas is nearing 3 feet tall at 15 months!!! Thomas can now identify and say the words for at least 7 objects and Matthew can do at least 4.

Their stats were:

Weight 22 pounds 10 ounces (25th %)
Height 31 inches (50%)

Weight 27 pounds 8 ounces (85the %)
Height 33.5 inches (95th %)

Below are some pictures taken last night. Matthew is definitely our dare devil, has no fear and is always on the go. Thomas is our quieter boy and enjoys playing by himself, looking out the window and "reading" books. Both boys enjoy playing with each other and can often be found giving each other hugs and kisses.

Update on the Boys

The boys have been having a great time outside (sometimes getting themselves so tired in the morning that they fall asleep eating lunch as you can see below). Thomas has been greatly enjoying eating fresh corn-on-the-cob and raw carrots and stringbeans right out of the garden. They have enjoyed riding the ATVs and picking leaves. Thomas is more vocal then Matthew when it comes to saying words (he loves to repeat what you say) and Matthew loves to scream and say hello. Thomas is very good at pointing to an apple and saying apple (with the c sound rather than the p sound) and pointing at pictures of stars and saying "tar". Thomas has transitioned himself at daycare to taking his naps on a mat rather than in this playpen. One day he just went to the mat and laid down and fell asleep and now he won't go back into the playpen at daycare. Good for him. They have their 15 month checkup next week so we will post those stats. Enjoy the pics below.
