18 month stats!
We had to go back to the doctor today to get Leeza's second round of shots. :(
I hate that for the little ones!
Our last doctor's appointment was 2 months prior, on January 7th, where she had some pretty rapid growth after being home a little over 2 months with a 5 lb weight gain. She is growing out of her clothes so I felt sure she'd gained another 5 lbs. She did grow an inch, she is now 31.5 inches long, where she was 30.5 inches long on January 7th, and she gained a pound and a half, going from 23.1 to 24.6. However, last time she was weighed "tutti nuddi", and this time she had on her diaper and her adorableness outfit (but we took the sandals off)! She still eats a ton but she also RUNS AROUND A TON! She is a smidge above the 50th percentile for height now and about the same on weight. I don't really concern myself too much with the "charts" because Sean was ALWAYS off the charts cuz he was so tiny and now he's a HUGE kid weighing in at 105 in 5th grade. :)
At Sean's school picnic she discovered peanut butter and jelly and LOVED IT! I am so glad she loves PB&J because it's an easy on the go kinda snack and is full of protein. She also LOVES chocolate milk (who doesn't?!)
I really like her doctor's office and they are all impressed with Leeza's development. It always takes me aback because she's "just Leeza" to us, but they're looking at her rapid development for growing up in the baby house for the first 13 months of her life. Of course, we think she is a mensa genius, but that's our perogative as her madly in love parents. :) When the doctor asked me if she was understanding us, I said, "oh, yes" and Leeza proudly showed off her mad skillz of knowing her earrings, and her pretty bracelet, her belly button, you know..all the important stuff a girl should know.
I put her in the cute lil shorts outfit (pictured) that came with a hat. She, of course, promptly THREW the hat off. I told her that ALL PRETTY GIRLS WEAR HATS. Wouldn't you know...she kept it the rest of the day pretty much. If she took it off, I'd just remind her how all pretty girls wear hats. HA! Maybe I can try that with the lil bows that she pulls out...
Love her gold sandals...God bless Target!
