The stats are in

Alli had her 15 month doctor's appointment and shots today... she was such a sweetheart. And as you could tell from my previous post, she's somewhat known for her tantrums and meltdowns these days. She waved to everyone in the waiting room, "babbled" to some of the other kids in there, and tried to share her Cheerios with everyone. We got in to the room and they got her stats...

Weight: 22 lbs 2 oz (39th percentile)

Length: 31 and 1/2 inches (83rd percentile)

Head: 17.7 inches (24th percentile)

She was smiley and happy the whole time the doctor was in with her too. He checked her ears and said they were great (thank goodness, that's always a fear of mine when we get in there!), and everything else looks perfect. She still has a great appetite, he said she may become picky soon... and said she may start having tantrums soon (HA, check!). I talked to him about the upcoming baby's arrival... he said it's a great age for her to not really be effected by the arrival too much, but it will be interesting to see her "maternal acts" kick in, as he put it. He said she'll definitely probably try to hold the baby and "care for it" too, I can't wait to see her as a big sister.

So, her next visit, the 18 month check up and yes, more shots, is supposed to be around April 30th (ha... since our due date is April 29th...) but, Dr. Graham said we could always bring her for that visit when we come with baby for their visit too. Oh boy, I can see it now... just thinking of bringing her and a new baby to the doctor's office makes me nervous... we will be able to get through this... right??? :)
