Seriously! I don’t know what’s going on with my kid but she is sprouting like crazy these days. I’m having to go through her clothing twice as often as before and still there have been a few outfits (around 12 month size) that I pulled out too late. My sister bought Grace this adorable black onesie that said, “this is my little black dress”. It had pearls around the neckline and came with a super cute black tutu. Well… I waited too long to break it out and now she’ll never be able to wear it because it’s too small. :( I guess I’m just in denial that my little gal is getting bigger and continue to be shocked by how quickly it’s happening.
We finally had Gracie’s 12-month check-up yesterday and she did awesome. Our previous pediatrician appointment was in early November so both G and I were very eager to see Gracie’s doc. This brings up questions I’ve been meaning to ask all you parents out there. How often do you get to see your kiddo’s pediatrician? When your little one was a baby did your doc have you come in every 2-3 months or longer? The reason I ask is that 60-90 days seems to be the typical cycle with most parents I talk to and yet I feel like we never see Gracie’s pediatrician.
Anyhow, we still LOVE doctor C. She is so great with Gracie and baby girl adores her. Grace showed her doc all her tricks during the appointment. She pointed to all her little baby body parts as we named them off, she waved and said most of her words and she was super engaged and pointed at everything. She even signed “more” for us for the first time! “More” is a sign we’ve been working on for about a month now but she had yet to do it for us. I managed to get it on video!
Dr. C had nothing but great things to say about Gracie’s development. The thing that made our day was when, at the end of the appointment, Dr. C said that Gracie’s verbal development is that of a 15 month old! I swear Grace was totally showing off and doing all the things we always try and get her to show friends and family. I’m so glad she finally decided to perform for us – what great timing right?!
Here are Gracie’s one-year stats:
* Weight: 21lbs 4oz – 50th percentile
* Height: 29.5in – 55th percentile
* Head Circumference: 18.3in – 80th percentile
The folded hands, those eyes, that hair! LOVE!
