Well, he's healthy.

He's 18 months old and his height is in the 95th percentile at 35 inches, but his weight is in the 25th percentile at 25 lbs. He was always my chunky monkey and now he's tall and skinny. How did that happen? Better question, why cant it happen to me? He started on his immunizations and he did so well, only cried at the actual needles going in and then he was okay. When we want him to stay away from something we tell him "hot" and so he knows that is bad, when the nurse gave him his injections he looked at me and nodded his head and kept saying "hot, hot, hot" over and over with big old crocodile tears in his eyes. I have been having trouble getting him to actually give his bottle up completely and the Dr. told me that I shouldn't worry about that right now because toddlers have enough frustration in their lives due to the fact that they can't communicate their feelings into words and he'll give it up when he's totally ready. I guess as long as I keep his teeth clean it shouldn't be a problem. Other than that, he's a healthy boy. I do have to take him to have a blood test to see if he's anemic because he is really pale, but I am pretty fair too so it may be just because of genetics. I don't know if I want someone taking his blood right now if he's not sick. Maybe I'll just buy him some gummy vitamins with iron in them just to be sure. That's about all, just your usual well baby check.

Thanks for sharing! You've got a tall and skinny boy. Yeah, I wish that would happen to both of us.

Yay for a good checkup! Nothing wrong with tall and skinny. I've got the tall part down, just need the skinny to go with it.

Sounds like a good check up to me! Ditto on the tall & skinny longings! I wouldn't sweat the iron thing too much - you could always try upping the iron rich foods in his diet too - much less risk of constipation that way too. If you want any pointers on iron rich foods let me know - I am borderline anemic so I make up for it dietarily - I hate being constipated & all of the supplements I have tried do that to me.

Nothing wrong with being tall and skinny! I'm 0 for 2! Sounds like you've got a healthy little guy there!
