Maddox weighed in at 19 lbs. 1 oz which puts him in about the 25th percentile. His height was approx 29 inches (don't have the sheet with me) which was around the 60th percentile.
Apparently we don't need to be worried about his weight because Dr. K said that with as active as he is (no kidding!) he was sure that was what kept the weight down. I did mention that Maddox isn't the best eater early in the day but once the afternoon/early evening rolls around he is ready to chow down.
Here are a few other things he is doing...
He is standing EVERYWHERE! He just crawls wherever he wants and STANDS up! I think he thinks he is actually older than he is.
While standing, Maddox has taken 1 step forward and backward but never more than that. We are NOT rushing him we just know it is coming sooner rather than later! I can tell you this much, when that happens, we are REALLY in for it!
He crawls on all fours, not his hands and knees. I think he learned it from crawling on the grass (he hated the feeling apparently) and then decided that it was faster to just do it that way.
The dog dish is still a favorite spot to play- no matter whose dog dish it is....
This kid jumps around like crazy and he is FAST! Here and gone in 2 seconds flat. (I need to get a video uploaded on what he does in 5 minutes... sometimes it amazes me!) My mom took care of him on Saturday and by the end of the day she was done.... :) He would be perfectly content bouncing on anything and everything.
We are still trying the sippy cup thing, so far he hasn't taken a real liking but we are trying some more things.
We started him on some "real people" food and so far he has liked most everything. As a joke we let him have pickles but he LOVES those! I was really shocked by that.
Food, in general, isn't hard to get him to eat. His little mouth opens like a baby birdie waiting for a worm... I only struggle when Bear is around chomping at the bit to get a face or hand lick in.... THEN we struggle!
