The OCH update!

We finally got to check in today with Dr. Kieffer for Ollie's 20 month check-up. He's been so healthy (praise the Lord) that we haven't even been over to Carolina Pediatrics since June, which is very different from last year. Anyways, Olls got a clean bill of health. He is 28.5 lbs, 36 inches tall, which still keeps him in the 97th percentile, and his head was average I think, I'm sure. She was impressed by his left-handedness and those beautiful green eyes...recessive he is (neither Matt nor I are left handed.) We've been super blown away lately by his language skills (okay here goes the mommy bragging session, please feel free to stop reading and try and figure out what is stuck on his face in the picture above.) Ollie talks all the time and even says 3 and 4 word sentences. Like today when we sat down on the counter at the dr's he said, "don't want it, " how clever, he figured out where we were and he didn't want it. He did have to get 2 shots and a rather lengthy finger prick. He will hide in one of our closets and then jump out and say, "I see you." Oh and my personal new favorite, when he has a preference for something, like me moving his toy shelf to a new spot in his room he responded, "I like it."

It's crazy to think that it's been almost 2 years since we so joyfully brought our little Ollie into the world. He is such a joy to us and all around. Tonight when I was putting him to bed, we sang Jesus Loves Me, it's part of the routine. Then I said Ollie you have so many friends, let's pray for your friends. I started naming all of his friends, he would say their names after me. There were a few at school that I forgot and he said their names. And then as I laid him in his bed he said "Taylor", she keeps Ollie for us on Wednesday nights so we can have a date night. What a sweet little guy...I luz you, Ollie!
