Abigail's 15 Month Old Stats
Weight: 22lbs 8 oz (42%)
Height: 31 1/4 inches (68%)
Head Circumference: 47 1/2 cm (87%)
Jackson at his 15 months old check up was also 22 pounds but 12 ozs, he was 30 inches and 1/4 (shorter than her!) and their head circumference was almost identical at this age. Check it out at this post.
Abigail is doing great. She is saying all kind of words now (the other day she saw a painting and the girl had a hat on and she said "hat), and while the doctor was examining her, she kept on saying "all done." Baby Signing Time videos have taught her so much. She loves to sing and can almost can sing "Bringing Home a Baby Bumble Bee" completely (I will have to get that on video). Recently, so loves to say "go potty," when her brother goes. I think I will be buying her a potty seat when she turns 18 months old since she is so interested in it, but right now she is still a baby in my mind.
We went to Dr. Bouknight said she we will clip her frenulum before she turned 7 years old, but we would not want to put her down just for that right now. YAY! The two weeks when she did not talk was probably because of all the fluid in her ears with all the ear infections she had in February.
The only thing that the doctor said that I had forgotten is that she does not need to have more than 8 ozs of juice a day. She has right about that much (I do half juice, half water).
She only had to get one Hep shot and Jackson was so sweet to her when she got it. He said, "its ok baby, I am right here (that is what I always say).
She has fallen a good bit recently, and the doctor said right now is one of the hardest times to move with a baby because they all love to explore right now.
Last night Jackson got sick to his stomach twice and Charlie (my prince) came to the rescue today. We were up from 2-4 am. Pray for him (that he does not get dehydrated like last time and have to go to the hospital), and pray that we have enough time to pack everything with him being sick! The movers will be here early Friday morning. Thank you so much for praying!
What are some of your recommendations for a 15 month old?
