1 Year Doctor Appointment


Today, Lily had her one year check up. As always, we love to see Dr. Kelly! I mean, come on, who doesn't love to see someone who tells you your baby is perfect???
Lily weighed in at 20.5 pounds and as you can see above, she was VERY excited about it! ;) That puts her weight in the 35%.  She's 30 inches long which is 75% and she has a head that measures 46.5cm. Her head circumference is 90% to house that big growing brain of hers, of course. ;)
I've mentioned before that Lily is working on A LOT of teeth at one time. It's now SEVEN! Dr. Kelly said that when the front teeth are delayed coming in it's because of strong gums, so that was good to learn. She was happy with her strength and development.

I learned the average age for walking is 13 1/2 months and I am A-ok with whenever it happens for Lily! We know it's soon because she is doing everything except actually taking the steps--standing, cruising, letting go, getting up without holding onto anything. It's going to be soon!

The one thing Dr. Kelly said that made me laugh because it was so on target for Lily's personality was, "It seems like she's a mix of easy going with a little bit of dramatic." That is EXACTLY right!

We talked about food, milk, bottle, carseats, shots, talking, walking, blood work, and teeth.

We stopped using bottles officially last week. She had a pretty easy transition to the sippy cup which we were thrilled with. Again, something I didn't push early and still met my goal of being done when she turned one. The paci will follow soon, but with the mouthful of teeth she's working on and an upcoming trip, it will be a few weeks. She usually uses it just for sleeping anyway, so I'm hoping it's pretty easy when we do it. *crossing fingers*

There were 3 vaccinations given today. And they were sad. :(  But, the pretzel she got afterwards cheered her up...not before I captured her big tears though.

She napped after we got home for 3 hours. Between her shots and her birthday party yesterday, she was one exhausted baby girl.  So was her mama. ;)
Birthday posts and party pics soon!


  1. Poor Lily & her shots. So sad. She's so cute!

  2. I'm glad she's doing well! I love the first picture! The shot one is so pitiful though-poor little girl!
