Blake just had his 15 month appointment he is the following:
In 50% weight and 30-40% height.
He is doing well with walking and learning new words...the doctor said he should be saying at least 6 words, and we are on track or even a bit above that.
He has begun to know how to throw tantrums and also has selective responding. Here is the deal: Blake can respond and do commands like : throw away garbage, shut the door, give someone something, but when we tell him don't touch, he touches something. The doctor said that he is being selective in what he is responding to. That he knows what no means, but continues to do it anyways. That means that Jason and I need to be more consistent in how we talk to Blake...when he is doing something he isn't suppose to do it, we leave it at just saying no and redirecting him. The doc told us not to have lengthy conversations with him when disciplining him because he sees he is getting attention and he will love it. If we just say no, it's not a ton of attention and conversation with him and soon he will catch on to what we are trying to teach him. We'll see....we'll try this and hopefully he will stop touching the TV!
