Mini Man

We went to the doctor this morning for Noah's 15 month check up. We ended up being there for 2 1/2 hours. He had to catch up on some shots and get some blood work done, but mostly we just talked about his weight.
At almost 16 months, he weighs in at 17.4 lbs. He's not really even close to being on the growth chart.
He is 29 inches long. 3rd percentile.
On the bright side, his head is 17th percentile! So at least the man has some good brains!
We met with a pediatric dietican today and are going back next week. I have to do a food diary for 4 days. Hopefully I will get some new tips that I haven't already tried to get him to eat.
"Mini Man" is the nickname the doctor's office gave Noah today.



Here is a picture of Noah, with his friend Bennett. They are only a week apart.


Here's Noah with Bennett and Ian.

I know this picture is a bit sad, but I had to post it so you could see how little he really is.

Small, but Happy!

On a positive note, Noah is exceeding milestones when it comes to motor skills. Must be that big brain! :)

He really is adorable. Brayden wasn't on the charts for his weight until he was 2. Starting at about 1 year old our pediatrician had us put Carnation Instant Breakfast in his milk and that seemed to really help. In fact, he is still on it b/c he just doesn't eat enough for the amount of energy he is using. Good luck!

That is so cute! I had some hopes for small children but I guess my jeans came through strong. Everyone in my family has big babies. Noah's cousin just might catch up in weight a bit faster than expected...

oh, but he's such a cute little guy! At least he'll never have to worry about what he eats! Ha, I (or you) WOULD say that! :)

Brooklyn gained 1 pound from 6-12 months old. Once I figured out what she couldn't eat, she took off with her weight! She is now gaining fast! Sometimes the blood tests won't give you correct answers though. My doctor said it was better to test the foods than the blood test...all doctor's opinions are different.
