Colin's 1 Year Check-Up

Colin had his 1 year check-up today. Everything was great. He weighs 22 lbs. 2 oz. (50%) and is 30 1/4 inches long (75%). The pediatrician says that he should be getting teeth any day now, b/c they are "bulging" and that they will probably come in all around the same time. Poor child. He was impressed with Colin's social skills. He said for a 1 year old, he maintains eye contact really well, and is very social. Do we have a future preacher or musician or public speaker? I wonder! Colin didn't exhibit much stranger anxiety toward the doctor, and that impressed him as well. He said that the stranger anxiety of a 1 year old is pretty high. Colin does have some stranger anxiety, but it has been getting better recently. He got 3 shots today, but handled them like a champ! He only cried while he was getting them, but as soon as I was able to pick him up, he was all smiles again!

All in all it was a really good visit, and our next one will be at 15 months.


  1. I'm so glad to hear that he's happy, healthy and developing well. We tend to forget how important these "little" things are.

    Thank God for the "little" things.

  2. Yeah for a good check up! Praise God! It was good to see him today. He was so cute at lunch!

    It sounds like your pediatrician rocks ;)


Leave me some love!
