bragging about pooks

pooks is officially 15 months old and because of that, today he had a well baby visit.

here is the info that everyone is dying to know...his weight, LOL.

pooks is 23lbs 6 oz, which places him in the 40th percentile. his height is 30.5inches (50th percentile) and his head circumference was a big ol' 19inches--placing him in the 90th percentile! so basically he is a perfectly average sized 15mos old with a larger than normal head, LOL. he is following the same curve he always has so there is no cause for concern. i like to think that his big noggin means he has a big brain in there ;)

developmentally he is right where he should be. he can walk, he can stack 2-3 blocks, he self feeds, he's on table food, he points, follows basic commands, he ''grunt, points, or speaks'' when he wants something and he can say 3-6 words in addition to 'mama' and 'dada'.

as i was listing off what he could say to the doctor, I realized that he knows how to say the craziest words! here is a list off the top of my head:

-cookie
-duck
-choo choo
-car
-nanaw
-papa (which he finally started saying last weekend)
-hi
-no
-Tasha (the yellow one from the Backyardigans)

he can also point out a digger, airplane, dog and motorcycle when he sees one. he claps, and he has started to blow kisses. he'll give you a high five, he attempts to play "patty cake" when you do and he *loves* to comb his hair.

the only thing he wouldn't do/won't do is point to body parts. and its annoying because i know that he knows some body parts. if you tell him to comb his hair, he does. obviously he knows where his hair is. but if you ask ''pooks, where is your hair'' he just grins. same thing with tummy and arms. each morning i tell him to put his arm through his shirt, and he will but then you say ''wheres your arm?" and he laughs. he's a heathen, but i love him :)
