Last week we had Brayden's 18 month wellness check with his doctor and she was impressed to say the least! He was jumping when she walked it and she immediately said that jumping is a milestone for when they are about 2 1/2...not 18 months! Haha. Well he has been jumping with both feet off the ground for a few weeks now! Crazy child. She was also impressed with the number of words he can say. She asked us how many words and we couldn't even give her a number so she asked us if he said more than 20. I am pretty sure we laughed. He most definitely says more than 20 words...he basically repeats anything we say.  At the end of the appointment, she asked if he puts 2 words together. Brayden promptly said "bye-bye Dr. Shih!" So yes, he puts more than 2 words together.

It was a great appointment and we are so proud of the big boy that Brayden is becoming! He is still in the 50th percentile for weight and now in the 75th percentile for height. He definitely has that toddler body! It's so hard to find pants that fit him. He is too long for 12 month pants but the 18 month pants are too big in his waist. So he is either ready for a serious flood or he wears a belt. He wears all 18 month shirts and pajamas and jackets...we just struggle with the pants!

We did ask her about his cough because he developed on the day before his appointment. With all the times he has been sick, he has never had a cough. She said his ears and lungs were clear so it's probably just from the weather. We are hoping it passes soon because this poor kid doesn't need to be sick anymore! This winter season has taken a toll on him!

Overall, Brayden is amazing! We love him beyond words...and he's pretty cute if you ask us!
