This morning we had Madison's 1 1/2 year Dr appointment.
Weight- 24lbs 47oz (50th percentile)
Height- 33.31in (80th percentile)
Head- 48.4cm (90th percentile)
Developmental milestones she should be able to do:
Uses 7-20 words. Check! She is at the lower end. Madison knows doggie, kitty, ball, juice, banana, da, ma.
Points to several body parts- Check!! She knows: hair, eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, tongue, ears, neck, belly, feet, and toes.
Follows commands. Check! When we say we are going bye bye, she gets her jacket and shoes. Yesterday I spilled 1/2 box of pasta on the ground and Madison said ut oh, and started pick up the pasta with me and putting it back into the box. She also likes to clean up her toys at the end of the day and puts them on the toy shelf.
Turns pages in a book without ripping. She LOVES books. Right now we only let her have board books, but she is better about not ripping up my magazines now.
Walks and runs well. Check!
Uses a cup and utensils- Check!
Throws and kicks a ball. Check!
Stacks and builds. Check!
Next visit is in 3 months when she is 21 months old. The dr wants to make sure her vocab is growing well.
We didn't get any shots today, Madison is sick and I don't like her getting them when her immunity is down. We also learned today she has pink eye and we have to put drops in her eyes every 3 hrs. She will not be contagious after 24 hrs. The dr said she got pink eye from her cold. It wasn't the normal pink color and her eye hasn't been shut when she wakes up. I told her a couple of days ago she started getting green sleep and I guess that is a type of conjunctivitis. So hopefully she will be better soon!! :O( Poor baby!!
