Lucy’s 18 month Check Up

18 May 2011

Lucy is 26 lbs. and 32 1/2 inches, both 75%.
Dr. Ernster is very happy with her growth, and called her a beautiful little girl.
He wants us to stop the bottles. He actually requested we end the bottles “Yesterday”. Hmmm. I didn’t see that coming. I don’t relish the process, but it will be nice not to be doing bottles anymore! (I can’t wait to throw them Away!)

-She still has a rash on her bum, but it appears to be getting slowly better.
-She got her second of 2 Hep A shots.
-And, she is “Precocious”, in that she is running and skipping already – these are 2 yr old motor skills.
So Dr. Ernster requested we be very vigilant, and not trust her to be as mentally mature as she is physically. (He jokingly referred to it as ‘suicide prevention’.) If she starts to climb over the baby gate at the top of the stairs, I can remove it!
