Callen at 12 months

Callen had his 12 month appointment today. The last time we were at the doctor's office was about 2 months ago when we found out he had coxsakie virus. And at that visit, he totally flipped out the whole time. Crying when anyone got near him, clinging to me for dear life. I figured it was because he didn't feel well. And you wouldn't think that he would remember that visit; I have read that babies do not develop long term memory until after age one. But Callen would like to test that theory. Because today, the second we walked into the doctor's office, he started crying and clinging to me. Before we even saw a nurse or doctor or anything! He did warm up to Dr. S after a little while, thankfully. Which brings me to his stats. Callen is now in the 65th percentile for weight, at 23 lbs, 13 oz (Apparently our scale at home is off by a few lbs!) and in the 97th percentile for height at 32 inches on the dot. He's the size of the average 18 month old!
