12 Month Check-Up

We had Ryan's 12 month well visit this morning.  The nurses were just eating Ryan up the moment we walked in the door.  They were all playing with him and Ryan of course was loving it.  He turned his flirting way up and really made everyone's morning.  I guess Ryan made quite an impression on the staff because when the doctor walked in she said that she heard the cutest baby boy in the world was in the room...she agreed.  :)  

Ryan weighed in at 23lbs 8oz (50th percentile) and measured 30.5in (50th - 75th percentile).  We discovered that Ryan had a minor ear infection so they decided to put him on an antibiotic and postpone his shots until he is off of the medicine.  

The doctor also told us to use up any formula we had left and then to switch completely to whole milk!  I am hoping for a smooth transition.  She also encouraged us to keep Ryan's car seat rear facing until at least 18 months as it is safer for babies to ride rear-facing.
