My bottons are bursting, and it's not just because of my muffin top!

I have an average child!

Ivy is exactly in the 50th percentile for everything! It's so grand! So...normal! So not MRI worthy!

She only weighs 10.3lbs, usually by two months my kids are nearing the 20 lb mark. She's so lovely and I love that I don't have to worry about another huge noggin.

Bentley on the otherhand....

Well first off he is stubborn as a mule and even though he has been taking steps and walking a bit for about two weeks now he wouldn't do a durn thing for the doctor.

Doctor: So, does he know about 5 words or so?
Me: Oh yeah! He knows like ten, at least!
Me: Come on Ben, say Uh Oh
Me: * nervous chuckle * Oh, he must be nervous, *cough * um...hey Bentley, say mama
Ben: gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa scream
Me: I promise he's very bright, see, watch this...Bentley, where are your toes?
Ben: *sticks out tongue and spits *
Doctor: *rummaging through MRI images* well on MRI his brain appears normal, we'll keep an eye on him.

It went much the same with the walking bit. He walked about as well as Ivy does.

Oh well, at least Ivy doesn't have a huge noggin!

The 50% is my one third shining through. You may thank me by bringing her over here.

Hilarious! Matthew did the same thing at that age! The doctor asked if he spoke, and I said, "Yes! We can understand him really well!" But, the doctor did not understand one thing, because he wouldn't talk normally! Maddening! Now he won't sit still and stop talking!
