Bilingual

So today was Talmage's 18 month well baby check-up. He is 33 inches and 22 pounds...making him in the 85th percentile for height and the 8th for weight. Yep, that sounds about right. He is extremely picky, it's true, but I really think he eats an okay amount. However, he runs pretty much non-stop throughout the day! Add that to his naturally high metabolism, and you have our tall, skinny boy. :)

And here is a funny little anecdote. I'm not sure where he got this from--perhaps he picked it up from all the Hispanic people that live in Houston, or maybe he is saying something else and I am misunderstanding him. But about half the time I ask him something he should respond to with his characteristic "Yeah," like he used to always do, he shouts out, "Si!" It always catches me off guard and makes me smile.

  1. Start teachin 'em early...(maybe you could teach him how to say "yes" in several other languages and then impress strangers when he just starts shouting them out!).

  2. Built like his mommy (though not his daddy - no cinnamon roll knees on this boy).

    Peter had his check-up this week too. Yes, still off the charts for everything (31+ lbs, 35.5 in). Not built like his mommy, or his daddy for that matter. I have no idea where he gets it, but he's healthy, and well-proportioned, so that's what counts.

  3. Si, Talmage, tienes que aprender algo de espanol.
