What a difference a year makes! We took Finn at 4 months old to the OBX and decided to go this past week a little over a year later. Oh how much has changed. Finn also had his 18 month doctor appointment and here are his stats:
* 23.5 pounds (skinny kid – up only a pound from 3 months ago)
* 33 inches long (up an inch from 3 months ago)
* 48.5 cm head circumference (head growth is slowing down thank goodness)
Finn was a good driving companion with only 1 meltdown each way during the 6 hour drive. Not too bad. We look forward to our next trip as he seems to be a great traveler.
The week was great except for 4 days of rain and a strange rash on Finn that entailed a virtual trip to the doctor as soon as we got to the beach. Thank goodness Gallup offers us Teledoc, which allowed us to go online and request a phone consult with a dermatologist. I emailed the doctor photos of Finn’s spreading rash which he quickly diagnosed and prescribed an antibiotic. All this in less than 15 minutes! We avoided probably 3-4 hours waiting to see a doctor in person at the only clinic on the island about 45 minutes away.
