15-month "well baby" check-up

EDIT: Owen weighs in at 25 pounds, not 15 as in my original post!!! Thanks Amanda for noticing my ridiculous error! I think his cold has gotten to my head! :-)

So yesterday afternoon was Owen's 15-month well visit. He's not really "well" at the moment, so it was a combo well/sick visit. He's been battling a cold, which turned into a suspected sinus infection, for which he was put on antibiotics, has been waking up coughing in the middle of the night, his nose won't stop dripping clear snot, and well, that's about it.

Mommy finally taught Owen how to give kisses last week. You guessed it, I've now contracted his lovely cold. This is the second time I've gotten sick from him. And it's my own fault. I just refuse to not kiss my baby because he's sick. So I'm bound to get sick. Comes with the territory.

Here are his current stats:

Weight ~ 25 pounds, 2 ounces - 50th percentile
Height ~ 33 inches - 95th percentile
Head ~ 19 & 1/8 inches - 75th percentile

The pedi says we need to increase his calories at least until his 18-month checkup to see if we can get his weight up a little bit. He's a good eater, but I think he just hasn't gained much since his last visit because he is so active. So lucky boy gets to have more cheese and milk and hopefully he'll grow big and strong by his next checkup.

Thanks Amanda! Glad you caught that for me. I mean, he's skinny and all, but not 15 pounds!!!! :)

If he is included in the portion of the world that gains 10lbs over the holidays then come the new year he'll be right up to par with that weight :)
