12 Month Well Baby Doctor's Visit

Posted by Heather at Monday, February 21, 2011
Today was your 12 month Well Baby Doctor's Visit with Dr. Guerriero. You now weigh 20 lbs. 15 ounces and measure 29 1/2" long. This puts you in the 65th percentile for both weight and height. Your iron levels were checked and you are a-okay. They will send a blood sample to Raleigh to be tested for lead levels. Apparently, it's mandatory for all one-year olds in the state of North Carolina. We'll get the results at a later date.

The doctor says that you are healthy and growing. You are walking and babbling and developing right on track. He said that by 18 months you should be putting two words together to form simple sentances. I told him that you already say, "Bye, Dada," and the doctor responded that we've got a talker on our hands!

It's time to introduce peanut butter and whole milk into your diet, Katy. We've got to make sure you get enough calcium. Honey from the grocery store should be fine to feed you, now that you are over a year.

Katy, you were NOT pleased with the finger prick or the two shots that you received, today, though!! You cried and cried and were very clingy for the rest of the visit and even after we got home.
