18 Month Check Up

My baby is 18 Months old (guess that means she's not a baby anymore...). She's happy and healthy and right where she should be.

Her stats -
Height: 33.25 Inches (90%)
Weight: 27 lbs 14 oz (90%)
Head Circumference: 48 cm (80-85%)

She got one shot and a little blood drawn....and no tears! She only cried when they put a band-aide on her and she couldn't get it off.

Developmentally, she's right on target. She has a 7-10 word vocabulary....Momma, Dadda, cat, dog, poop, "nanna" (banana), all gone, sit down, more, shoes, no. She can climb the stairs (holding an adult hand, of course), climb onto the sofa and into her high chair. She pushes and pulls the recycle bin all over the house. She knows the milk and water are in the fridge, the bananas are on the counter, and the cheerios and goldfish are in the pantry. She runs to her room for a diaper change and knows when Mom needs to go potty we go in the bathroom (still don't trust her to run around by herself). She can point out her belly button, nose, eyes, and head. And I can tell her to go get her cup, her cheerios, her bunny, and she runs into the other room to find the item and brings it back to me.

Worn out after the doctor's visit.

And, because I'm super excited...they are expanding our Wal-Mart into a Super Wal-Mart. It's expected to be done next fall. You can bet that's where we will be doing our grocery shopping! (Please don't hate...I know some people have negative feelings about Wally World, but I love it!) Here's a shot of the steal frame work going up.
