15 month check up

Matt took off a little early to go to Pearson's 15 month appointment with me yesterday.  I am SO glad that he did.  Pearson was such a wiggle worm and all over the place, so it was nice to have an extra set of hands to wrangle him. 
Our little man is a healthy growing boy.  He now weighs 24 pounds 5 ounces (50th percentile), he is 31 1/2 inches long (50th percentile) and his head circumference is 18 3/4 inches (50th percentile).  He's a pretty average guy, although look at that big belly!!
 Pearson had his iron levels checked again because last time he was borderline anemic.  I made sure to give him lots of iron rich foods and thankfully his levels were back up to normal! The band-aid on his toe from the prick was driving him crazy!
I knew Pearson would be getting some immunizations along with his flu shot at his appointment, but I didn't know that I would be getting a shot too.  Our doctor offered to give me a flu shot so I went ahead and got it so I didn't have to go somewhere else.  
Every time we go to a well visit and get a good report, I am overwhelmed with thankfulness that our little boy is so healthy!!

Landry loved the mirror last time we went to the doctor! It kept him very entertained while we waited (that and his hands)!
