Guess Who Has a Clean Bill of Health??

And who is FINALLY on the American growth charts?  Yep, you guessed it!


We had our two year appt. today.  Lexi did awesome.  She didn’t even cry when she got her shot! She weighed 23 1/2 lbs (fully dressed w/o shoes) and was 31 1/2 inches tall. But she is finally on the American charts in the 10th percentile and on the Chinese chart he said she would be about in the 25th percentile.  The part that got me all excited was that he said if you take away her age and just compare weight and height we are looking at about the 50th percentile.  He said she looks healthy and has filled out beautifully.  She’s now off the bottle and drinks all her milk from a cup.  Her receptive language is great but we are still awaiting the language explosion.  She says many words and is putting several words together but of course Mommy wants more! 

Lexi does a somewhat lazy eye.  I see it in pictures mostly and the Dr. did give me a name for it but he said it is nothing to worry about. It’s basically the muscles around the eye and sometimes especially if she is tired she doesn’t open that eye as wide as the other.  I really had not noticed it until I began doing the 365 picture a day challenge.  He said he doubted anything would ever have to be done to it as they only correct such a thing when it interferes with vision. 

After our visit we came home and put on the yellow coat that we bought her last year after we got her referral.   It’s amazing that it fits since it’s 6 – 12 months but it looks big.  We went for a long walk/push/ride.  I walked and pushed while she rode on her new tricycle.  We’ve been inside now for at least an hour and she still won’t take off that coat.  Lord help us if she won’t take it off for bed!!!  LOL!
