Oh, You're Sooooo Tall!

Evie went in for her 1-year check up today. She was so good for the doc. He typically talks to the kids, plays with them a little before he gets started so they feel comfortable with him. He was talking to her when she leaped into his arms and gave him a hug. It was too cute. It didn’t take her long before she was ready to go back to Mom, but she never fussed and really seemed happy for most of the visit. We even pinned her down so the doc could dig out some hunks of ear wax and she didn’t make a sound. In fact, it kind of looked like it felt good.

So, she is a picture of good health. She is now off the charts on height and above average on weight. She is 32″ long. Seriously…the kid is over 2 1/2 feet tall and she’s only 1-year old. He is at 75% for weight at 23.1 lbs. She’s on target on all landmarks.

So, all went well until it was time for shots. Both Mike and I left with the same feeling. She’s a vocal baby. You can count on Evie to let you know if she is mad, disappointed or hurt…but now we aren’t sure if she’s ever truly been hurt. Neither of us have ever heard her cry like that before. It was really heart breaking. She had a low-grade fever when I put her to bed and she was a little fussier than normal after the shots, but seems to be well otherwise.
