An apple a day….

…doesn’t prevent well-baby visits.

Erin had her 15-month check up earlier this week.  She was not happy about it!

aug weeks 1 and 2 (44)

Actually, the photo isn’t quite accurate.  She was wailing only because the doctor left the room.

Yep.  That’s it.  Just because Lindsay walked out.

Have I mentioned that she is super-sensitive to people walking away from her?  She is.  Don’t do it. ;)

aug weeks 1 and 2 (45) 

She actually had a really good appointment.  She is officially a walker (has been for a few weeks now, but hadn’t been at her last appointment); doesn’t really say anything yet (though the doctor said that’s to be expected in non-firstborns); she is a tad bowlegged, but mostly just in her left leg, but she is expected to outgrow that; and her stats are as follows:

weight: 19 lbs, 8 oz
height: 29.5”
head circ: 18”

She had to get her hemoglobin retested, and she is slowly but surely getting her iron up to the level they want to see.  We’re one-tenth of a point away!  She got two additional vaccinations, and after those, she was ready for her nap:

(Shhh!  Don’t tell Brother that Bailey came to the doctor to keep Erin company!)

wow It seems like I was just commenting on what a beautiful newborn you had! She is growing so fast, and those eyes are just adorable. I am glad to hear that her hemoglobin is doing so much better.

She's a Peanut like Abbey! Abbey was JUST barely 20 pounds at their 15 months. Luke seemed huge at 24 pounds =)
