18 Month. Dr. Visit

I didn't do it!

Chocolate cake on Dad's birthday. Yummmmmm!

Madeline is growing up way too fast! She is now a year and 1/2. Wow! She had her 18 month visit this week and the dr. said she looks great. She's still on the smaller side, but growing at a healthy rate. She weighs 23 pounds and is 32 inches tall. That puts her in the 30th percentile in weight and 60th percentile in height. The doctor said she's physically advanced but verbally delayed. He was concerned because she hasn't picked up new words since our last visit and wants her to go to a speech therapist. We're not sure how we feel about that. She understands everything and points to things. She also uses visual clues to get what she wants. I guess it doesn't hurt to get an evaluation. Everyone I know who had a child who didn't speak at the "right" time, turned out to be a late talker and nothing more. Time will tell.

Great Day Out!

Where does the time go? It's so hard to believe that Madeline will be turning 18 months this week. Really? A year and a half? Wow!!!!! There is never a dull moment with Madeline around. She is such an attention grabber wherever we go whether it's a tantrum (unfortunately), a spontaneous dance, or a screech of happiness she turns heads. Maddie is going through the independence stage. She wants to do everything by herself...use a fork and spoon, get in her carseat, buckle herself up (with help), and run free. Every day is a new adventure and we wouldn't change it for the world. Look....a squirrel! Madeline discovered the squirrels in the trees and chased one into the bushes.

Look at that smile! Cute, cute, cute!!!!

Look Mom it's Dad!
