My Skinny Boy and his Bear

I forgot to tell you all the recent updates on Gray: we went to his 15 month check-up, (15 months! How is my baby that big?!?!?) and he's doing great. The doctor was very impressed with how coordinated he is (he hardly loses his balance at all anymore) and by how many words he can say (about 35!!) He's 32 inches tall (80th percentile), but only 22 lbs(8th percentile!) He's a tall, skinny boy - like his daddy! I have no idea WHY he's so skinny -- he eats ALL the time, and eats very well! Guess he just has a high metabolism? So I have to take him back in a month and get him re-weighed. Oh, and he has a little bit of keratinosis -- and orange tint to his skin -- because he eats so many carrots and sweet potatoes! But the doc says that's perfectly fine and to keep feeding him whatever he'll eat! Anyway, here are some pics of my skinny baby!

(look at those knee rolls, though!!)
(scuzzin me off for taking his picture while he's nakey!! hehe!)



Grayson found Snuffles the other day! And ever since then he hasn't let him go! Snuffles is a big, fluffy white bear that I gave Steve before we were married. Today, Gray kept carrying the bear around, giggling madly, then he would all the sudden just tackle it!! He did this for a good 1/2 hour - no joke! It was hilarious!!! I had to take pictures :)

What is your secret getting him to eat carrots? Bry used to eat them and now will not touch them at all. 35 words...that is awesome!

Ahhhh how sweet! I love the pictures with the bear. And I love how he's flexing his bum a little bit. I'm sure I'll have a tall skinny one too!

So cute. Sounds like he is a healthy little guy. My 2 year old only weighed 22 lbs at her 2 year appt. and she eats better than my 4 year old. Some kids are just meant to be skinny I guess.

I love the pictures of him tackling the bear. So cute.

Did you read Gray the Snuffles book Steve wrote? Those are GREAT pics w/ the bear and bum.
OH I LOVE THAT LITTLE MAN CUB

I can't believe he's that old either. So dang cute!!!! Love all the pics with the bears. I think kids at that age just get attached to different things. Ruby was obsessed witha hammer for a few weeks and then onto something else. Too dang cute.

Oh he is so funny! I love that he decided the bear was his friend. Those pictures are adorable! He is super skinny but as long as he is healthy it doesn't matter a bit. :)
