18 month doctor’s appointment


Today Paige had her 18 month doctor’s appointment.  She now weighs 23 pounds (25-50th percentile) and is 33 1/4 inches long (90th percentile) and has a 19 inch head (90th percentile).  She was constantly trying to step off the scale, so her weight may be a little higher.  But, she is definitely tall and slim.

The doctor said she was doing well developmentally but she is a bit behind on her speech.  If she is not saying 20-25 words in the next 3 months, we will have to come back for another appointment.  Paige did get the MMR shot today, which she was not happy about, but she always recovers very well.  As long as she stays healthy and her speech picks up, we will not have to go back to the doctor until she is 2!

2 month checkup


Paige went for her 2 month check up today!  She now weighs 12 pounds 11 ounces and is 24 1/4 inches long (she gained about 2 pounds and 2 inches in a month)!!!  She is in the 90th-97th percentile for length, weight, and head circumference. 

 She also got her first major round of immunizations (polio, HIB, DTaP, Rotavirus, and PCV), which she did not enjoy one bit!   But, she did calm down pretty quickly afterward.
