After having a lovely birthday party last weekend and a fun but low-key family celebration on Tuesday, we ended last week with a visit to the ol’ pediatrician (in their new offices…my two favorites from our previous practice split off on their own and we made the switch as well) for The Little Sis’ one-year checkup.
Everything looks great! Her physical exam was perfect, and she received three shots (including one in each arm) but cried only for the duration of the shots and then stopped crying as soon as I could snuggle her more. Easy peasy.
Weight: 21 pounds, 14.5 ounces (50th to 75th percentile)
Height: 30 inches (75th to 90th percentile)
Head circumference: 17 3/4 inches (50th to 75th percentile)
Our infant car seat goes to 22 pounds and 30 inches, so it looks like we’ll be making the switch very, very soon (which we expected…I knew she was getting close to both measurements).
Our developmental questions this time:
*Can your baby pull herself to a stand?
*Does your baby look at toys? (there was more to this question, I think, but I forgot to jot the rest down!)
*Does your baby imitate what you and/or others do (like pretending other objects are a phone, etc.)?
*Does your baby point to objects and/or people?
*Does your baby jabber?
*Can your baby play pat-a-cake?
I was able to answer yes to all of them except the last one — and the answer to that one is: I don’t know! Confession: I’ve never played pat-a-cake with her! So, um…maybe?
We’ve got a healthy, happy girl, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
