And while you are napping away I am going to at least document a little bit about you. Who knows maybe I will get back in the swing of this blogging thing.
There are so many words to describe Seamus. Most often we hear "Tiny" or "Little" as his description. It is true he is very little. We spent a lot of time comparing Seamus to Cyrus because Cyrus was always in the 90th percentile while Seamus was on the lower end of the charts.
Seamus's 12 Month Stats
Weight: 18 lb 4 oz
Head Circ: 17 3/4
Seamus's 15 Month Stats
Weight: 20 lb 2 oz
Height: 29 1/4"
Head Circ: 18 1/2
During his 15 month well visit I learned that our little boy dropped down into the 10th percentile. He fell right off his growth curve (He was 20th percentile at a year). I have always heard that falling off ones growth curve was a bad thing, and usually that is when the doctors get all up in your business. Accept for Dr. Craft, probably because I am always worried about poor Seamus's size or lack their of. Dr. Craft took one look at Seamus and looked at me and said "Do you see an unhealthy baby in this room?" He was right Seamus doesn't look malnourished, actually he looks pretty perfect to me, just a little on the short side. Seamus has perfect baby skin with just enough chub to be cute. Oh and the boy eats everything and twice as much as his older brother on a consistent basis. Dr. Craft said Seamus is obviously a very active little boy, and well that is an understatement, the kid is go go go and then go some more. Dr. Craft also kindly pointed out that I am not the tallest person in the world, so Seamus might have gotten his height from me. However, he told me that it is more than likely that he is just growing at his own pace, and that he will eventually average out, just like Cyrus did.

A few other things about Seamus. He is the strong silent type. Seamus doesn't say very much, or sign very much. He still signs more, please, all done, dog. His actual spoken words, when he feels like it are Mama, Dadda, Cyrus, I want, that, what's that, thank you. He very rarely speaks. To the point where I started getting worried. However, since he has been in daycare we have seen him become more verbal, the other children are rubbing off on him.
Seamus started walking at 14 months. I don't remember it happening like it did with Cyrus. Cyrus started trying to walk and it took him about a month to actually be able to do it. I feel like with Seamus he spent a whole lot of time pulling up and standing, and then one day he just took off walking. He quickly started running soon after.
He climbs everything that is climbable still. It scares me a little bit, but I surprise myself by how much free space I give him. I'm allowing him to figure things out on his own. He loves to climb up onto Cyrus's bed.

Okay I am going to have to finish this later. The boys are up from nap and it is time to go to the park.
