Remy's 1 Year Check-up

Remy had his 1 year check-up the last day that Mom and Dad were here so Mom was able to go with me and record the occasion (she was there taking pictures at his first wellness check too.)

They took his measurements and he is pretty much right where he was last time

  • Length, 30" = between percentile 75 and 90
  • Weight, 21 lbs. = in percentile 10
  • Head Circumference = between percentile 25 and 50

He also had four shots and he cried so hard we thought he was going to pass out! Poor little guy :( I gave him some tylenol when we got home and by the afternoon he was peeling off his band-aids and pretty much back to normal.

The most interesting thing was that his pediatrician gave me a referral to our state's Early Intervention program for speech delay. I was pretty shocked because I had heard that it was fairly normal for boys not to be talking at one year. She said it can take weeks to months to get an evaluation so it is good to get his name in now and just see what they have to say.

I played phone tag with the coordinator for a couple of days and then went in for my surgery so I haven't signed him up yet. I think I will wait a couple more weeks because he seems right on the cusp of talking and I don't want to waste their time.

In other big news, I gave him a hair cut. His very first hair cut. And I messed it up. I'll post pictures soon.
