My child loves Wheel of Fortune (can you blame him?). He has since he was just a wee babe. I don't know if it was the bright colors on the wheel that would suck him in, or the fact that he was probably pretty familiar with Pat Sajak's voice, seeing as how I watch a lot of Wheel, and I'm sure he heard it in the womb. These days, it has become more than a color fascination. Evan is starting to yell letters at the screen. It is awesome! He usually starts off with "C!" on his own, but then just starts repeating whatever letter the contestant has just said. I can't begin to describe how much I love this. Now, I consider myself a pretty darn good speller. It's always been something that comes very natural for me and I enjoy it. Maybe it was all my Wheel watching back in the day? I'd like to think that years from now, when my son is just as prolific of a speller, people will gather from all around (insert small dose of sarcasm) and ask his beaming mama, "Where did he learn to spell so well? You must have worked so hard." I'm going to proudly tell them Pat Sajak did it.
Although I'm quite sure Pat Sajak has nothing to do with this:

This is Evan's growth chart from his 15-18 month well-check done a couple of days ago. He is currently 35.5 inches tall. Those numbers really mean nothing, it's the fact that he is well above and beyond the 100th percentile that kills me. Do you think it's possible to literally be "off the charts"? The rate he's going, I'm excited to see if we can hit that milestone some day before these well-checks are through. For those of you keeping track, he is also 26.75 pounds and his head circumference is 19. I know how much you care about these figures.
And what kind of post would this be without a picture of the little man himself:
My baby (sniff, sniff), all 35.5" of him. I really can't even handle how much I adore him.
I also find it pretty fabulous that he likes to go find his dust pan in the kitchen and bring it in to sit on while he plays with toys, reads books, or watches TV. That's probably Wheel of Fortune up there! Don't worry, I bought him an adorable little chair today, so he won't have to sit on the dust pan anymore.
