Olivia's 12 Month Well Visit

Somebody had her 12 month checkup yesterday and the doctor confirmed what we already knew… 1. She’s growing like a weed and 2. She’s HUGE.  Seriously people, check out these stats!  If her toddler class had a football team, she would be the offensive lineman!
Weight - 23 lbs. 6 oz., 90th (yes, you read that right) NINETIETH percentile

Height - 30.75 inches, also 90th percentile

The doc said there’s no need to worry that she’s huge (I wasn’t anyway) because her height and weight are proportionate, and that’s what actually matters.  He checked her ears and said that they look great (Thank. Goodness. Jacob had a bazillion ear infections before we had his tubes put in.), BUT he had to clean one of them out because he couldn’t see in there and she SCREAMED the entire time.  He said that she’s reached all of the appropriate milestones, she says more words than the average 12 month old, and that she looks all around perfect.  I could not agree more.  Just look at her, that spunky little nugget. :o)

She had to have shots at this appointment, and I was very proud of myself for holding it together and not crying this time.  I almost always tear up or full-on ugly cry every time.  I just can’t stand to see my babies in pain.  She did cry while they were administering the shots, but she stopped as soon as I picked her up and loved on her.

Jacob came along for the appointment, and he accepted a blue lollipop on her behalf for behaving so well.  He loves going to the doctor… I guess that’s not such a bad thing, though.  All in all, it was a successful trip, and we will hopefully all stay well and not have to go back until Olivia’s 15 month well-visit in June.  You hear me, germs?!

Until then, I’ll just keep sitting over here trying to figure out how my tiny self made such GIANT babies.

Anybody else out there with me?
