Abby was in true form bouncing around the office, crawling all around, tearing apart the bed paper, and laughing up a storm. All at the same time, being still while Dr. Morneault looked at her ears, tried to find the stubborn top teeth, and checked her hips. She even was quiet as a mouse during the toe prick. No shots today, but we had a quick toe prick to check for lead. Unfortunately, my parents live in an old, very old, farm house and most likely has lead paint. I wanted to check to make sure she hasn't been exposed. We're good about sweeping and vacuuming, but she is an infant who puts everything in her mouth. Everything.
Here are her stats!
Height: 27 1/2" = 46%
Weight: 15lbs 6oz = 3% (Holy peanut Batman!)
Head circumference: 17.5" = 65%
We're not concerned about her low weight since she's healthy, eating well, and her height is good. She is just so active, she burns off all the calories she eats!
In other Abby news, she is such a delight. She is stubborn, independent, and comical. A flirt who already uses her gummy smile to get what she wants. Her independence means we're pushing right past jarred food and going right to finger foods. Her diet consists of carrots, peas, squash, string cheese, bits of turkey and chicken, peaches, blueberries, mango, banana, cheerios, whole wheat and graham crackers, green beans, yogurt, egg yolks, and more. I think she could eat peas and banana for every meal if I let her. :-)
