15 Months Revisted
We finally made it back to the pediatrician today for Kaycie's 15 month shots. We were supposed to go on the 10th but she was too sick to get the shots so we rescheduled her checkup for today.
My kid is freakishly tall.
Her official stats for 15 months are 23.6 lbs (75th percentile), 33 1/2 inches tall (greater than 95th percentile) and her head is 18 1/2 inches (75th percentile). The nurse was like, "Dang, girl, you are TALL." I don't get it. Other than her uncles and great-uncles, there isn't a tall gene in her DNA. Surely she'll grow out of it. Her weight is down a full pound from when we first took her in sick three weeks ago, but that's not a shock since she's decided food is something fun to throw at the pup.
Other than being a mini-giant, she's in tip top shape. We're returning the nebulizer tomorrow (she'll miss it). We started some new allergy meds tonight. Instead of the candy-like children's Zyrtec she's now taking Allegra and Nasonex spray. I told Dr. M that we had a flower bloom this week, we're doomed for the next 3-4 months.
And did I mention that while she was SCREAMING at the nurse giving her shots I noticed that teeth numbers 11 and 12 have finally broken through? Been fighting those teeth for months! And no, I'm not about to stick a finger in her mouth to check on them anymore, she bites!
