18 Month Check Up

Noah turned 18 months yesterday and this morning we went to the doctor for his check up. He measured in at 36 inches (above 100%) and 28 pounds (75%). The doctor seemed pleased with his development, especially his ever growing vocabulary. Noah did not enjoy the visit though, mainly because it involved strangers poking at him. At one point, I had to pin him down to the table while he screamed so that the doctor could check his ears and throat!
I asked the doctor how to best go about introducing Noah to his baby brother in a few weeks. He recommended that we just be relaxed about it and not worry too much about Noah's reaction. Obviously we are going to have a few bad days here and there, but if we don't make a big deal about the new addition, then Noah will be quicker to adjust and accept his new brother. I guess we will just have to wait and see!
