We took Ian to a new pediatrician today for his 1 year check up. He's 25 pounds 3 ounces, and 30.75 inches tall.

The doctor told us to start weaning him from the bottle, give him some milk and see how he handles it (because of his allergies), and that he should be on all table foods. I don't know how we're going to do that, he's not really into solid food so much. I can only sometimes get him to eat 1 five ounce jar a day. So that will be interesting. She said he should be eating what we eat, and all I could do was think was, "I bet he'll love buffalo chicken strips." Of course it just drives home the fact that I eat like crap, so maybe that's why I don't want to think about it. I'm going to make him some scrambled eggs when he gets up from his nap and see what happens.

She said she's worried about his vocabulary, which we were also a little perplexed about. He makes a lot of sounds, he doesn't really say words yet, but he makes tons of different talking noises.

Otherwise she said he seems very healthy, has a nice strong heart and clear lungs.

She wanted to know why we didn't vaccinate. She wasn't trying to pressure us, she said she was just curious what are reasons were. I told her since DH has Asperger's (however that's spelled), I'm worried that Ian would be predisposed to autism, and that most of the diseases we vaccinate against are treatable/curable, while autism really isn't. She said we had better reasons than most. We told her we'd maybe vaccinate him when he was about 3, and she told us that by that age, there's hardly a point to it, which I thought was weird.
