Jill, 16 Months

2' 8.25" tall (it's not long when they walk, right?), 88% - a baller!
nugget size 46.5cm, 62%

happy morning - before the shots
A month late but Jill went to her 15 month check-up today (she was 16 months old yesterday).  She had a blast walking down the hallway, checking out the fish tank by the pharmacy and stepping onto the scale.  She weighed almost 24 lbs., which sets her in the 58th percentile. 

Dr. Oh said to do away with the bottle all together (she has two a day now) within the next two months.  We'll see what Granna has to say about that!  My Mom has been fighting me on this one.  Jill was very well-behaved while Dr. Oh examined her.  Shot time was a different story.  Two shots to the upper thigh later and Jill was screaming.  Poor baby.  Real tears.  Oh God.  But she gave me a big hug, glared at the nurse with the needle and flashed me a smile and everything was ok again.  Everything was ok until around 3:30 when Miss Cindy called me at work to say that Jill had a reaction.  Her leg was very visibily swollen and hot to the touch and she didn't want to put any pressure on it.  Call into the doctor.  Tony ended up speaking to the nurse.  She recommended Mortin and a warm cloth compress.  Meanwhile, we hang out on the couch, cuddled and looked through books.  It was just what the doctor ordered!
