WCB had her 12 month check up at the DR yesterday. Here’s the update:
22 lbs, 30 inches, with a head circumference of 18.5″ This puts her, respectively in the 60th, 75th, and 90th percentiles for a girl.
Dr had clear evidence that her lungs were JUST FINE (she didn’t like being mauled about by a stranger, getting shots or having her finger stuck for a hemoglobin test). So was everything else.
While we were at the DR, she made a funny sound in her mouth – thinking there was something in there, I poked about and found… A MOLAR…we’ve been waiting for it/them, and I hadn’t checked in the alst few days and there it was several points sicking out of her lower left gum. I suspect the other side to show up any day the way she has been chewing.
We are currently fascinated with the permutations of in – what fits in other things and how to get things out of other things. And we have a great deal of respect for the Kitty – who occasionally wants to play with her toys. WCB actually sneaks up when he is not looking and steals her toys back. Smart baby. A couple of nips, a scratch on her nose and a couple of scratches on her wrist were all it took.
Lastly, she has thoroughly grasped the hand sign for eat. Yea! Not so hot, however, on the difference between “eat” and “bottle/drink.” Oh and the word “No” is becoming clearer, as is “AH – dah” for all done, and “Meh Meh” for mom.
Another set of shots at 15 months and then NO MORE until 4-5 years old. YEA!
