Charlotte's 18 month well-visit
On with Charlotte- she is doing great! She weighed 27.6 lbs (93rd percentile), and measured 33.5 inches tall (97th percentile). She has grown about 2 inches in the past 3 months! (Assuming their measurement is accurate). Regardless, she is growing and developing and thriving. The doctor seemed pleased with her physical abilities and noted that she is very flexible- which I had just noticed myself. He said it wouldn't be a bad thing to get her involved in gymnastics, especially given the level of energy she was exhibiting during her appointment.
Her current vocabulary is:
ball, balloon, bowl, bow, boot
down, up, dada, done
cheese, this, that, banana ("nana," stands for all fruit)
uh-oh!, yay!, and wheeee!
He asked if I had worries about her speech and I said no... since at this age the boys had 2 words or so apiece. He said what I described sounded right on to him, which is nice.
He asked if I had any concerns at all about her, and I said no. I really don't! He also commented that she seemed very good-natured, which I agree with. She is such a charmer; while we waited for her shots she played a little in the hallway and by the time we left, everyone in the new office knew her name.
She is healthy and well- and our next appointment is in 6 months, when she turns 2!
