This week, E had his 18 month checkup. My little big boy weighed in at 29.6lbs and was 34 inches tall. 90th percentile for each. This was one of the better appointments. E usually screams the entire time but he was brave when the Dr. was checking him over, just a few "No's!" We did have screams and tears when he got two shots but I would be screaming too if someone held me down and shoved a needle in my leg.
E still likes his bottle and the Dr. strongly suggested we work on getting rid of it. I admitt it, the bottle is totally a comfort thing for E so this may be an uphill battle. He's so content after his bottle and I love the snuggle time. But, it probably is time. My goal is to have E bottle free by the time Baby 2 arrives. We have about 5 months to work on that.
We got a peak at Baby 2 this week as well. I had my 20 week ultrasound where they take all the measurements and make sure all the organs are in the right place. Baby 2 looked good and we did not find out the gender. I was tempted, but Mike wants his moment during the delivery to announce boy or girl. I think we're having a boy. Ever since E was born, I knew I wanted more kids and I just pictured myself with boys. Rowdy, stinky boys running through my house, I feel I'm a "Boy Mom." Only time will tell and as long as Baby 2 is healthy, boy or girl really doesn't matter.
