Brandon is 21 months old

Brandon turned 21 months back on September 14th.  He weighed 23 pounds, 6 oz.  His length was 31.2 inches.  Brandon is definitely a short petite boy.  He is in the 25% ile for weight and 2% ile for length.

Again I am over a month late with this update.  I can't remember all the little things he was doing but he did visit the spina bifida clinic and all looked good.  He got his own little walker since he is working on standing and walking with his physical therapist.  He also got fitted for new orthotics.  We are still waiting for them to come in but he will be wearing kiddieGait orthotics.  These will really help him with supporting his ankles and assist him to walk when he gets stronger.  He is making progress physically and we are so excited for this progress.  Brandon is really working at pulling up to stand.  He is just having problems with getting his feet flat on the ground.  He tends to pull up with his arms so he looks like he is standing on the tips of his toes.  Also Brandon is doing so much better with sitting with his feet in front of him.  Its been a long process with him learning to sit, but I think he has finally gotten it.   

Brandon started saying new words and becoming more and more social.  He is so friendly and loves to greet people.  He is so much like his daddy - a social outgoing guy.

Brandon continues to sleep well at night.  He is getting to that age when he knows its bed time and he gets upset because he wants to stay up and play.  But he does love to be read to before bed and that helps with the bedtime process.

Brandon is such a sweet , mostly calm boy.  He really only gets upset when he is hungry or tired.  He is also such a funny little boy.  He makes me smile all the time.  His smile is a joy in our home.  Love this little boy so much!
