Default 18 month well visit

Joseph is 18 months today and we took him to the ped this morning. He's 26.8 lbs and 32.5 inches tall. He was too big for the deli scale this time! He stood like a good boy.
No shots this time since she likes to space the hep a shot at least 6 months apart and he had it at 15 months.

The ped was pleased with him. She was impressed with his vocabulary and wasn't surprised with his climbing skills. She was ok with us giving him veggie fruit juices to get the veggie part in his diet until he's old enough to understand consequence and reward.

I really like her alot. We had to see her when Joseph got an infected sore before the insurance kicked in when we moved. She cut the cost of her office visit for us since she knew we were on a limited budget. As soon as the insurance got straightened out we changed her to Joseph's primary doc.

I had always thought that Joseph would always have a male doctor but maybe this is better.

She also said that since he shows an interest in th potty when we go that introducing the potty would be ok. I will be excited if he decides to use the potty before 2 years but ok if he doesn't. My major goal is to have him potty trained by this time next year so he can start preschool.
