Ford had his 18 month check up last week and it was quite eventful, to say the least. I know I've told you all about Dr. Roy in the past, but I have to brag on him some more. Ford just adores him! He loves him so much that he crawled up in to his lap and cuddled with the doc...twice! Dr. Roy was quite happy to have Ford sit with him, too. But, as soon as Ford wanted Dr. Roy's laptop it was ALL over! Ford threw himself on the floor, prayed to Allah for a minute, then he was fine. I was horrified but the doctor kindly said, "that's nothing, my Leo (his son) will go on and on for 20 minutes!" Well, those of you that know Ford, know the kid isn't capable of doing the same thing for 20 minutes, but it was comforting nonetheless. I guess Ford's tantrums are quite common and the doc gave us some great advice on how to handle them in the future.
Ford is 23 pounds and 3 ounces (2oth percentile), 33.5 inches tall (84%) and his poor peanut head is in the 13%ile! We have a long and lean boy on our hands! Most importantly, though, Ford is a healthy lil man and we just adore every day with him.
