15 month appointment

today was addison's 15 month well visit. she's actually almost 16 months, but they didn't have a well appointment for a while so we had to wait. the doctor i normally take her to wasn't in town, so we had to go to see a different one (same office, just different doctor). no worries. it wasn't the doctor i don't like. i made sure we didn't get her.

now on to addison's stats...

she weighs 23 lbs 2.5 oz, which is in the 50th percentile (i really thought she was a big baby. apparently not as big as others!)

she is 31.5 inches tall, which is in the 90th percentile. she's a tall and skinny girl apparently!! (which makes me laugh because she has a big belly!)

and last but not least, her head is 19 inches around, which is in the 90th percentile. (don't really know how else to say it. but it's big!!)

the doctor she saw today was really sweet and nice. i think we might start going back to her, because i liked her a lot. i like her normal doctor, but this one was just really good.

of course the visit wasn't all rainbows and lollipops. addison had to get 3 shots. poor baby. i hate getting shots. really hate. so i didn't really expect her to like them either. (i mean, who does??) she did really good today, though. like better than all the other times combined. she cried when she was getting the shots, but after it was over, she was totally fine. she wanted me to hold her, but she didn't cry after that! such a big girl!!

she doesn't go back until she's 18 months, and she has to get a few more shots. joy! i think she'll do just fine then, too!

Awesome on the checkup!! I never liked the shot part for Kelcee either! I would tear up and she would be fine!

What a big girl!! Glad her appointment went well

Have a great weekend
Summer :0)

I found your 15 month progress note from the doctor. Here's the stats:

Height 32.5 inches (90 percentile)
Weight 23 lbs 13 oz (70 percentile)
Head 18.75 inches (80 percentile)

I thought you were the cutest thing on the planet at that time. You've dropped back to number 2. Addison is just a bit cuter.
