1 Year Stats

Teagan had her 1 year well visit today. She got her shots Sad but took them like a champ. She cried for a moment and then was content playing with Daddy's phone. After a lengthy discussion with her doc, we decided to opt for the varicella vaccine because my DH has had two outbreaks of shingles (really rare and NO fun). So, there's a risk that a case of the chicken pox could be really bad for Teagan. I figure even if it doesn't give her complete immunity its better than a really bad case. The ped was happy to hear she's still BFing and said its a good time to start introducing cow's milk if we want to and if she'll drink it but that we needn't worry if she doesn't drink much. He also said we should be vigilant about tooth brushing now that she's got sooo many and that its OK to start introducing her to the potty. Yeah, been doing that for about 11 months now ;). At her visit, I noticed that her top two canines are starting to poke through :eek:. Those two will bring her toothy count to 14! Oh, and little miss "I don't walk" took a step at Rowan's party last night. Right on her birthday! And right towards Sara and not me :mad:. She repeated it today at her appointment. Only towards her Daddy. Punk. Whatever, she still loves me best. Wink

Her party isn't until next weekend. I'll post pics of it when I get them. We're having a professional photographer so it might take a week or so.

With that lengthy update, here's her stats!

Weight: 22 lbs 7.5 oz (75%ile) ; a little less than I expected, only up 1 lb since her 9 month appt but I'm not worried whatsoever and neither is the doc
Height: 30.25 in (75%ile); Up 2.5 inches since her 9 month appt! Holy growth spurt Bat Man!
Head circ: 18.75 in (97%ile); Yeah, kid's got a huge noggin'

Sounds like a great appointment. Glad she didn't cry for too long after the shots. That's always nice for the mommies (at least it is for me). What a little stinker not walking to you first!! She should know better. Smile That's probably what Evan will do, he is such a daddy's boy.

Yay for a good appt!

I can't believe she took her first step on his first birthday. How cute and exciting! I bet you'll have a walker soon. Wink

And you need to post a picture (if you can get one lol) of Teagan smiling with all her little teeth! 14. :eek:

Sounds like a good appointment, you guys get your varicella vaccine early over there, it's scheduled at 18 months here.

Congratulations to Teagan on her first steps, just think those are prectice steps, when she gets the real ones down she will walk over to you.

Sounds like a great appointment! My dd took her first steps to daddy as well. Once she gets the hang of it, she will be heading straight to you!

I thought that first step was a secret / 'didn't happen.' What step on her birthday? I know nothing about it.

DH says "Erin will always be the base from which Teagan takes steps. That's how she gets the confidence to do it."

At least you got to see the first & second steps. Wink I was not at home when my DH witnessed the first couple. I'm determinded not to let that happen with DD2.

Glad to hear it was a good appointment and your pumpkin seed is growing so well!

Emma's Stats, as of yesterday:
Height: 29.5" (75th) was 28.5" at 9 months
Weight: 20lbs, 10oz (50th) was 19lbs at 9 months
Head Circ: 18"

SO glad her growth is slowing!!! I was worried that she would grow out of all her super cute winter clothes before it even got cold.
