Teagan had her 1 year well visit today. She got her shots 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 . 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 . She repeated it today at her appointment. Only towards her Daddy. Punk. Whatever, she still loves me best.
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'
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.
And you need to post a picture (if you can get one lol) of Teagan smiling with all her little teeth! 14.
Sounds like she is doing awesome! Yay for that 1st and 2nd step! She is just waiting till she can take a few in a row like a pro and then will come walking over to you for a big hug.

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."
