Twelve month check-up.

Ali had her’s today. It was scheduled for 2:45pm and we got there pretty early: about 2:30pm. Didn’t get called back until after 3:30pm and didn’t get out of there until like 4:30. Apparently they’re inthe process of changing from paper to electronic records. Ugh. Ali did amazingly well though, especially considering she woke from a nap between 12:30 and 1pm and was tired. In fact she still hasn’t slept (it’s almost 7:30!), though she was near sleep while eating dinner. This is probablythe longest she’s ever stayed up. 

Baby had to get four shots today. Two in one leg, one in the other, and the measles one (that is supposedly very painful) in an arm. She did well, especially whenshe got an Elmo sticker after the fact. I have to say her weight was less than carefully done; she was basically tossed on, clothes, diaper and all, and guesstimated at 19lbs. Which I’m sure isn’t so far from the truth but still. Very different experience than back when every ounce mattered. Her height was 28.5inches and her head circumference 18.5.

Which means she’s still tiny with a huge head. Ninetieth percentile for head circumference, 25th percentile for height, and 10th-25th for weight. Although I think the doc may have put her at 30th and 16th for the last two, respectively.
