From an overwhelmed stay-at-home mama, to a grateful freelance writer/yoga teacher/stay-at-home mama, the past ten years have been a real physical, emotional, intellectual and philosophical trip. I've shared many personal stories here at 24-7 Mommy and hope they'll remind you that you are not alone on this crazy parenting adventure. Please feel free to share your experiences...the good, the bad and the amazingly AWESOME!

The little guy had his 18 month doctors appointment/check up today. I am pleased to announce that it went very well and I have a healthy and thriving son.
26 pounds (50-75th percentile)
35 inches (95th percentile)
with a head circumference of 18.5 inches (50th percentile)
While I was concerned about his language development (or lack thereof), my mind was put at rest after my conversation with the pediatrician. Boys develop slower than girls. The little guy has a high level of comprehension and will respond when spoken too. He is a very physical boy, which may partly explain why his verbal skills haven't exploded like his physical development. He also has a sister who speaks all the time, which could also play a role.
Regardless, I will sleep well tonight. And once again, I count my blessings.
