today we went for Caraline's 15 month checkup.
she weighed in at 19lbs 9oz - 10th %.
height 301/2in - 50th%.
yes, we have a little petite one on our hands!
we have been waiting patiently to turn her carseat forward facing and I just knew that today would be the big day, then seen that we hadn't quite met the 20lb marker.
the doc said that it would be absolutely fine to go ahead an do it though!!
i think that she will love facing the other direction, however tim and i just got the hang of getting the seats in and out in about 30 seconds (it took us a while to figure the whole rear facing thing out with her big girl seat).
so maybe we'll turn it around soon but probably not today.
her weight has been steady between 10th and 15th% the last few visits.
of course this concerned me but my doc says that she is great and healthy and that he would rather see her at the 10th% than the 90th, so I'm happy with that (we just don't want her to go any lower)!
going to our doctor's visits has become quite an event.
as soon as the nurse comes to call Caraline's name she buries her face in my neck and starts to pucker up:(
it's the saddest little thing ever.
we can barely get her weight bc she is crying and trying to reach for me and I am afraid she is going to fall off the table!
then when our pediatrician comes in she turns bright red and just screams and kicks as he is examining her.
same thing when the nurse comes back in for the shots.
thankfully today there was only one shot and the doc said that it wouldn't cause her any fever/probs like the last set did, and so far she seems just fine:)
as for her swollen lymph node that took forever to go down, it is now completely back down to normal size.
now for the fun stuff!
Caraline has a ton of teeth in her mouth and her first molars are now pretty much in.
she can really eat anything and she does. she isn't picky at all about her food!
some of her favorites are bananas, pancakes, and mac n cheese!
she can do the motions to the itsy bitsy spider all the way through!
she is practically running and is so hard to keep up with.
and now that she is so on the go she is of course getting new bumps and bruises daily (which mommy hates, she's so sad when she gets hurt).
(here she had a bruised cheek and her first busted lip)
she says many words now but getting her to repeat them after she says a new one doesn't happen. we just have to patiently wait for it to happen again. some of those words/phrases include: mama, daddy, nana, papa, memaw, zac, thank you, juice, doggies, and tickle tickle tickle.
she is so so easy to take care of, her babysitters( nana and aunt mary) tell us how easy she is all the time!
she loves it when memaw comes to stay with us for a weekend and she gets to show off for her the whole time!
going out to eat has become a bit of a thing of the past, she gets quite testie when her food isn't put in front of her right away.
and we still have a great sleeper on our hands. luckily I am still getting 2 naps a day, 1 in the morning lasting about 1 to 1/12 hours, and 1 in the afternoon lasting 21/2 to 3 hours, and she sleeps from 8pm to 7am at night! and so easy to put down, we really just take her to her room, put her music on, lay her down with a blankie an thats it, she puts herself to sleep!
anyway, i could go on and on and on about my little girl but i think this is enough for now!
Caraline, your daddy and I are so blessed by you! Love you sweetie:)
