18 month checkup

Mae had her 18m checkup today. She is in pretty amazing health. Here are the stats:
Height: 33" (80%)
Weight: 25#2oz (75%)
Head: 18.5" (50%)

She only had to have 2 shots today. 2 more at age 2 and then the HepA booster at 2.5 and she will be all caught up. Phew! This was a nice visit. We seldom get to see the doctor when someone isn't sick, so it was nice to just chat. She is at or above where she needs to be verbally and physically and in general, just seems to be adapting well. We certainly have our moments, but in the scheme of things, I think we are AOK. Sam was 1 day old when Ted was 18 months old. That is nuts. Mae is fascinated with babies and the idea that I could have a newborn right now seems mind-boggling. Good thing I was young and stupid at the time! Mae's newest thing is following 2 to 3 word directions (Go get the pirate, find his hat, and bring it to me. -no problem...) and talking up a storm. Most talking seems to include the words "Help," "Mama," and "cookie." Hmm.

Mae is getting so big. I am so glad it was a good visit with the doctor.
