18 Months

She had her 18 month check up a few weeks ago and here were the stats:

weight: 98 %
height: 50%

I had the sock drawer open 
 while I was packing and she climbed the ladder of her new bed/play pen and crawled right into the sock drawer.  I actually had the camera in hand so I snapped a quick picture before getting her out.

Yes, that's our little chunker.  She's officially been demoted from whole milk to 2%.  She has finally recovered from all the shots.  Not only did she have her immunizations, but also the flu shot, a tb test, and had her blood drawn to be tested for lead.  It was a rough couple of days for her.  Apparently she takes after me and has very small veins that are hard to find.  After 2 unsuccessful attempts at the doctor's office they sent us to the lab, where they finally got her blood.  It was not fun for either of us.  She screamed and screamed and screamed while I got to hold her down.

I'm just glad it's over, but I'm afraid she has a fear of doctor's offices now.  A week after her doctor's visit I went to my prenatal checkup and brought her with me.  She was perfectly content until we entered the examining room - then she started to scream.  My entire appointment and ultrasound were completed with her in my arms.  It wasn't particularly fun, but it was the fastest doctor's appointment I've had yet.

I never tried to get a quick appointment that way but, it worked. We never saw a picture of her loft bed. Take a picture and post it so we can see.
