Yesterday was Gabe's birthday!
As part of his birthday "fun", we had to take Avery for her 18month checkup. I was dreading it because I knew what her last appointment was like and at her last appointment, the doctor told us to be prepared for her to act the same way at her 18 month one.
But, I'm happy to say that we were pleasantly surprised! She got on the scale and got measured without a fuss! The doctor came in and talked with us awhile, and Avery just sat on the exam table looking through books like nothing was going on. She let him listen to her heart and lungs just fine. The only part she wasn't too thrilled with was looking in her mouth and of course the shots. But even then, she only cried a minute or so.
The doctor told us what he has said for many visits now-that she's developmentally ahead of the game. He said that she was acting more like a 2 year old than an 18 month old. She's still my tall, thin girl....she's 31.5" tall (which might be wrong because that was her height last month so there's no way she hasn't grown in 3 months) and weighs 21lbs 8oz (in the 10th percentile). Overall a very healthy girl!!
After her appointment, Gabe went to lunch with some friends and I stayed home and got Avery down for her nap. When he got home and she woke up, he opened his gifts and we had pasta for dinner. Then we just relaxed the rest of the night.
Happy Birthday Gabe!!
