15 month check-up

Weight - 20 pounds, 10th percentile

Length - 30.25 ", 45th percentile! (she's been at 25 for the past year...!)

Head circumference - 45 cm

The doctor was impressed with how little she's been sick for an infant in daycare. No sign of an ear infection and I didn't give any answers to his questions that concerned him. He could hear her jabbering on when it was just the two of us in the room, but once he came in she stopped talking and just stared at him. Later the stare turned into a coy little half smile, but she didn't talk to him at all.

She was pulling her clothes and shoes off the chair as though she wanted to get dressed and get out of there. :-) I was glad that she wasn't the cranky pants that she was at her 12 month appointment. She walked around the room a bit, practiced opening and closing the straps on her shoes, and kept an eye on both of us while we chatted.

She was a little miffed about the physical exam, but cooperated pretty well and didn't cry. Today was just one shot and she only cried for about 30 seconds afterward.

That is so awesome! She and Lainey are basically the same size now! (Weird since at 17 months, Lainey's 21lbs/2oz are 20th percentile.) I'm glad you guys had a good appointment, that's always so nice.
