Sixteen Months

Smiley was sixteen months old last week.

We went to the pediatrician's office on Friday, just to use their scale. He is now 31 inches tall (37th percentile) and weighs 21 pounds, 3 ounces (just off the bottom of the chart).

This is predictable. His height is staying about the same percentile as when he was a year old. He was only tenth percentile for weight, and a drop after a child starts walking is normal; he also has been teething. (If he is not back on the weight chart in two months, for his eighteen month checkup, then we might worry.)
