Last Thursday was a busy day and it was time again to take Aleigha to the doctor. We didn't have to wait long before being called back, but much to my surprise expecting to go straight towards the room the nurse stopped us at the "big kid" scale. Yep that's right, we no longer have to strip her down naked & wrap her in those uncomfortable screeching pads & transport her out to a room full of other nurses & doctors to be weighed. But she was a good sport. She got up on the scale weighing in at 24 lbs (50th percentile). Once back in the room she was measured at 31 1/2" tall (60th percentile)and head circumfrence at 18 1/2" (60th percentile). So she is still in good proportion. Dr. H noted that she was advanced for her age because of how many words she knew, and her great fine motor skills. I’m very proud. She got three painful immunizations in her little arms & thigh. We were both brave but she didHer new thing is climbing up on the fireplace
cry scream for a while from the pain & shock. She got a sucker for being so good & quickly forgot about all the trauma. Some other things you might like to know...she can point out her nose, eyes, ears, mouth, teeth, piggys (toes) & her belly button. She loves Malt-o-meal, apple yogurt, glazed carrots, cheetos, peaches, plums, oranges & french toast. She absolutely loves to be outside and she loves to stay the night with Mamaw & Papaw.
Happy 13th Birthday, Makenna Nicole
