this morning i took olivia to her 15 mth checkup. i just love dr. khanfar and am so glad i chose him. he always calms my (mainly obsurd) fears.
hanging in the waiting roomstats:
31 1/2 inches
18 1/2 head circumfrence
75% in all catagories. that's right folks, o gained 4 pounds in 3 months. that's crazy to me b/c aren't they suppose to slow down when they start walking?
could NOT get her to look at me for anything!
we talked about her lack of speech. he said that at 18 mths if she's still where she is (only says mama and uh-oh) then we will consider speech therapy. i know it's not a hearing issue b/c she follows commands and whatnot. i know she'll talk when she's ready and once she does i bet she doesn't shut-up! ha!! we also talked about certain auto-immune diseases that run on both my and rett's side of the family. and what i thought might be a splinter in her foot is actually a wart. what baby gets a wart??? i left there feeling certain that i have a healthy little girl!
i should note that she does not like being weighed or laying on the exam table. she almost cried while being weighed and she shed some aligator tears while on the exam table. i think it may be the paper on both the scale and table. maybe the crinkling sound scares her? i'm not sure but it was SAD and FUNNY at the same time. dr. khanfar said, "angel, you aren't suppose to cry at well checks!" he always calls her "angel" and i love that!
tonight i had some sweet friends over for dinner. em, eric and hudson wilkerson and hillary and reynolds carter came over to play and eat. we had a great time with the kiddos. o doesn't know how to act around those boys! they rough and tumble and she's dainty and quiet!! finally, towards the end of the night she "got into it". if you can get her to laugh you'll hear the sweetest sound!
her newest "trick"
