Lucas had his 1-year checkup with his doctor earlier this week. Here are his growth stats:
Weight: 22 lbs, 3 oz (63%)
Height: 29.5 inches (37%)
Head: 18.5 inches (74%)
All of his growth percentiles have increased from his last appointment. Compared to Ryan at 1 year, Lucas is a little chubbier and shorter.
I asked Lucas' doctor about one of his latest habits that I was a little concerned about.....rocking back and forth. He does it a lot in his crib, when he should be sleeping. He just sits and rocks forward and backward, sometimes repeatedly hitting his head against his crib. His doctor assured me that this type of behavior is normal, and it could either be a self-soothing tactic, or Lucas merely just learning about rhythm. I was also concerned about the fact that Lucas isn't clapping, pointing, or waving. But again, his doctor wasn't worried. He's on track for everything else, and just focusing on other things (like running) at the moment.
