18 month appointment

addison had her 18 month well visit yesterday and i don't think it could have gone any better! it was probably the best visit we've had.

when we got there, there was only a teenage girl and her dad in the waiting room. it was nice because we didn't have to hold addison the whole time to keep her from exploring. she just walked around a played. we weren't in the waiting room very long, which was another plus for the visit!

here are addison's stats:

she weighs 23 lbs 3 oz (40th percentile),

she's 32 inches tall (70th percentile),

and her head is BIG...19 inches (85th percentile).

the doctor said she is healthy, and she got a smiley face on her chart! we do have to work on her speech. she isn't saying many words (she has her own language that is definitely not english), and she really should be talking more. the doctor gave us a list of games we can play with her to help with it! so hopefully she'll be talking lots soon :)

she did have to get 2 shots, but she has done great with shots the past few times she's had to get them. she'll cry right after she gets the shot, but as soon as i pick her up and hold her, she's fine. she does better than me :)

we don't have to go back until she's 2, and she doesn't have to get any more shots until kindergarten!! yay!

Oh gosh, Jacob is finally picking up on words. Okay words as in mama and dada. Lol. When he gets really mad he'll go "mamamamamama" and happy/excited he'll go "dadadadada" it's sofunny!! That's good that addison is healthy. Right now Jacob is currently having tests on his lungs done. We cam quite figure out why he's weezing so much :(

My little one, Elizabeth, is 19 months and seems to have her own language too. She seems to talk in complete sentences but I have no idea what she is talking about! The only words I can recognize are Ma Ma and Da Da. She makes a sound whenever we see a dog that I think is supposed to sound like barking but sounds more like a monkey! She definitely understands a lot though so I know she will get there and Addison will too :-) She is adorable!
