Today Simon has his one-year-old well baby visit.
Simon’s official numbers for this visit:
Weight = 24 lbs 2 oz (10.9 kg, 70th percentile)
Height = 29.75 inches (76 cm, 50th percentile)
Head circumference = 19.3 inches (49 cm, 98th percentile)
No wonder my arms have been aching, I can’t believe he’s so heavy already. Poor little man got some vaccines today and also some blood work done. They weren’t able to find a vein to get blood so they ended up pricking his finger and “milking” his finger for enough blood for two tubes of blood. Poor guy was screaming the whole time. I hope it didn’t really hurt that much and was just shocking. He got some acetaminophen before his vaccines so that should have helped with any pain but he did have a little bruise on his finger afterward.
