An Apple and the Dr.

Sorry about missing yesterday. I'm having some sleep troubles, so by the time I washed all my dishes and cleaned up the house, I was totally spent. Too spent to even upload pictures and blog. It won't happen again, I promise! Here's what happened yesterday - nothing. We didn't go anywhere. We didn't do anything unusual. It was totally and completely normal. The only notable occurrence from yesterday was this. Not using G as a stool. That happens several times a day almost everyday. Poor dog. The new thing is the apple-eating. She is always trying to get her hands on apples. Her daddy eats lots of apples, so she thinks she can too. Yesterday, I let her have one and watched her closely, just to see what she would do. Here is what she did.

This child ate a third of the apple, peel and all. She is putting those little beaver teeth to work!

This morning, AC had her 15-month Well-Child Visit with the pediatrician. The doctor's name is Dr. Fang and we really like her. Just click on here (on the colored word), if you really want to read more about our doctor. I truly appreciate her for 'thinking outside the box' on certain topics and allowing me and Daddy to make our own choices for AC (as the ones who know her best).

Any who, she is right on track with development. Dr. Fang said she was very friendly for 15 months, which we all know, right!? She weighs 24.9 lbs. She is 31.75 inches long. Her head circumference is 18.7 inches. This puts her in the 75th percentile for weight, 90th for height, and 91st for head size. Basically, she is tall with a big head. Daddy likes to make jokes about this!! She got 2 shots - DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis) and PCV (pneumococcal). She cried really hard for about 30 seconds and then forgot all about it. I'm so proud of my sweet girl. Here are some pictures of our morning.

Playing while she waits for the doctor. Thanks to Jennifer for our adorable shirt!

We got LOTS of compliments!!

The best picture I could get when we got home. Oh, and the mark over her eyebrow is a big scratch. She and Daddy were having a little too much fun playing with the clothes basket!

So, we are so very thankful for a healthy and happy child. She is more than we ever dreamed. We can't wait to see you all in a few weeks! Happy 15 months to AC!!
