12 month appointment

Last week we went to the doctor for Callan's 12 month appointment and like usual, he grew... A LOT!
His head stayed in the 70th percentile, but he grew another almost TWO inches! Ridiculous -he is still off the charts at almost 33 inches and I was also convinced he would be over 25 lbs, but he was just 24 lbs 4 ounces.

For reference:
9 months
31 inches, 22 lbs 10 ounces

6 months
29 inches, 21 lbs

4 months
27.5 inches, 18 lbs 2 ounces

2 months
26 inches, 15 lbs 14 ounces

21 inches, 8 lbs 2 ounces

So as you can see, he is a GIANT! A perfectly happy giant. We were given the green light to incorporate milk into his diet as well as honey, although they did mention holding off a little bit more on some of the high allergen foods, like shellfish and nuts. However, although Callan hasn't had these things directly, he has had things things that have touched them, so we think his allergy potential is low. So we'll proceed with caution, but aren't too concerned. 

The one thing that is concerning is his sleep! Where has our great sleeper gone... sigh. One day he'll sleep through the night again. (I think). And we need to get him off the bottle. He's down to 1 or 2 a day, so I don't think it will be too hard, but Callan is stubborn and will only do it when he's good an ready. Welcome to life with a toddler!
