18 Month Well Child

Gwen had her first well child appointment (up to this point they have been called well baby). She was asked to take off her shoes before standing on the scale (which I helped with). Then she stood still while her height was measured- it was so cute! She is 27lbs 7oz and 31 inches tall (90th and 89th percentile respectively). She is exceeding all her milestones and developing beautifully (we already knew that ;-)

Eat, Sleep, Play- Do it again!

I missed doing a 17 month update, and now Gwen is almost 18 months. Rest assured she continues to be amazing. She is talking a lot- seriously new words every day- yesterday she started saying "All done," and today she said bucket- though her words aren't always clear to the untrained ear. I had to put all her 18 month clothes away and pull out her 24 months and 2T clothes since she is growing like a weed! And the last pair of shoes I bought her were a size 6 (which leaves her toes with a little room to grow). She has a great sense of humor and is so much fun. She has cut way back on her nursing (3-4 times a day) and is eating like she has a hollow leg. Now that the weather is nice we have been spending a lot of time in the front and backyards. She keeps picking flowers saying "Nose! Nose!"- evidence of my efforts to get her to smell the flowers not pick them. But why else are they there, to be enjoyed and she is loving them!
