18-month check-up

Loppan had her 18-month check-up this week, and it went perfectly fine.

She's suspicious of EVERYONE :)

Back in October she weighed 21 lbs 6oz and was 29 3/4 inches long. This time she weighs 22lbs 10oz and is 31 inches "tall". Yeah, she's still a tiny little squirt, but it makes it SOOO much easier to carry her around (which is all I do at this stage of the game!)

She is following the 25% curve exactly....has not veered from it one little bit. So, she's perfectly healthy and proportional. I did talk to the doctor about her left foot because it turns in a bit. She came out that way, and I've been keeping an eye on it to see if it would straighten a bit more since she's started walking, and it has, but not all the way. Her doctor said that the only real way to "fix" it was to break it (sounds a little harsh, right? :). I think he was really trying to convince us that there wasn't really anything wrong, and that it may just take time. That's not to say that it will go straight, but that she'll eventually figure out how to work with it if it doesn't. But for now, she'll continue to be our little bowlegged cutie, and I'm happy with that!
