Coleman at 18 months

Coleman is a healthy boy and growing like a weed!  At his 18 month check up he is 
34.5" long (97%) and 28 lbs 2 oz (91%).  

He is walking/running, throwing balls, climbing on everything and trying to do front rolls.  He wants to be where his siblings are at all times and eats about as much as they do.   He is still such a calm and peaceful child and never gets too upset.  He sleeps like a champ for at least 12 hrs every night and enjoys a 2-3 hour nap daily.  

We love this big nugget boy!!

Charlotte at Four!

Charlotte turned four in August and had her annual check up today.  She is our petite princess among the jolly giant boys!  She got her last round of vaccines until she is 11! yay!

Height: 3'3" (33%)
Weight: 32 lbs 8 oz (28%)
BMI: 15.01 (40%)

Charlotte is taking ballet, gymnastics and swimming lessons this Fall.  She is in PreK at CML.  She can write her name and is working on forming all of her letters.  She has become quit the fashionista and lays out her outfits, complete with accessories, each night.  She is such a sweet sister and friend!  Her heart is truly kind!!  I often call her little mama as she helps me so much with Coleman and has picked up on his different "noises" needs.  We love her with our whole hearts!

Coleman is ONE!!!

Coleman is ONE year old!!!  WOW!!! Times is flying!  He had a check up today along side Charlotte and other than a reoccurring ear infection, he is great!

Height: 30.75" (76%)
Weight: 22 lbs (58%)
Head Circumference: 17.99" (45%)
BMI: 16.36

Coleman is crawling everywhere and fast!  He will pull up to low surfaces, but not balanced yet.  He says "uh oh", mama, dada and makes the B sounds for several "b" words.  He is drinking from a sippy cup and eating mostly small bites of table food. He signs for more and points to what he wants.  He also crawls to the pantry and knocks on the door for Cheerios. We discovered he has a penicillin allergy and can not take any medication in the penicillin family.  He wears mostly 24m or 2T clothes, with the exception of 18m shorts.  He is in a size 5 over night diaper.  He loves watching his big brother and sister and smiles the most when they are around.  He naps once a day, usually 12:30-3 or 3:30 and sleeps from 7pm to 7/8am! He loves to be held and arches his back to hang upside down for fun! We love him to pieces and he is the perfect "baby" of our family!!

Carter at 6 Years Old

Carter is 6 now and the check ups seem to be literally a "check up/check out".  As expected, all is well and he's still growing steadily!

Height: 3'11" (82%)
Weight: 46 lbs (52%)
BMI: 14.49 (21%)

Carter still loves animals and is really into catching all kind of bugs, lizards and animals.  He dreams of traveling to Africa and can't wait to going hunting this Fall.  He is in kindergarten and seems to like his new class.  Carter is reading so well and has an amazing vocabulary.  Currently he is in taekwondo and swimming.  He is scheduled to start golf lessons soon.  He is very helpful and kind.  He does get frustrated easily, usually about things not going exactly right or the way he planned them.  His temper is more like Brody's so we are working on alternative ways to express it.  He is the sweetest big brother and has many friends at school and church.  What a special first born blessing her is to us!!!

Coleman at 9 Months

Coleman had his 9 month check up today!  He did have an ear infection, but otherwise he is healthy and happy!

29 3/4" (90%)
19 lbs 7 oz (40%)
Head Circumference:
17 3/4" (45%)

He is babbling mama and dada and does the bbbba sound for bottle.  He signs for "more" 60% of the time.  He is sitting up easily and starting to push up onto all fours and transition from sitting to crawling position.  He sleeps from 7pm-7am nightly and naps from about 12:30-3. Coleman smiles ALL the time and loves attention!  He drinks 4 8oz bottles a day (breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner) and eats various pureed fruits, vegetables and meats. He does not love peas, but that is about the only thing I can think of that he makes faces about.  He is wearing 18m clothes and a size 4 diaper.  He did have his first ear infection at this check up, but hopefully it is healed quickly.  What a blessing he is to our family!!!
