Ben’s Big Boy Toddler Day
What a busy day our little man has had! This morning started off with an 18 month check-up at the doctor. Ben is a healthy little man! He weighs 23 lbs 8.5 oz (40th % - his highest yet!) and is 32.5 inches tall (52nd %). His head circumference is not marked in his book and, of course, I can’t remember, but it fell in the 70th % somewhere! Looking back at his other stats, it’s hard to imagine him so small - 5 lbs, 2.5 oz (3rd %!) at 5 days old! We are so happy to report a smiling, healthy toddler is running around here.
Ben also started in his new class at school today. He’s officially a toddler! He went down shortly after I dropped him off and ended up staying with them all day! He will probably do the same the next couple of days and then I will begin to take him to his new class myself. He’s been so grown up over the last week with his goodbyes - walking me to the door, giving a hug and a kiss and waving or blowing kisses as I say goodbye. And compared to those little babies in his old class, he is a giant! He’s definitely ready for some more activity in his day, and he will love all of the new toys in the new classroom. And the potty. He just loves the potty these days. (And hopefully soon he’ll love going on it!)
Sigh. My baby is growing up!
