The Official Weigh-In

Parker and I went to the doctor the other day because he was supposed to have his final immunization shots, but he's been a bit under the weather lately so we re-scheduled the appointment. It turns out that Parker had the roseola virus. He started getting a fever just before the weekend, and then he developed the little rash on his body and arms. It didn't seem to bother him too much, though, because he still had a great time at his party. I think it's finally clearing up because he's starting to get back to normal Parker! Yay!

We weighed him and his official weight at 1 year is 25 pounds, 3 ounces. I guessed that his weight would be around 27 or 28 pounds because he feels pretty heavy, but he has always felt heavier than his actual weight. His height is just over 31 inches, so he's getting tall, too! It's really noticeable when he reaches at things (like the doorknobs, or the items strategically placed in the middle of our table-tops that are no longer as strategic).

Wow...25 pounds and counting! What a big boy! He sure does feel bigger than that when you're holding him!
