Yesterday Caroline had her 15 month visit. She got a A+ (I wonder if they give kids Bs or Cs). She is right on track. Last post I mentioned her doctor kit and my plan to get her use to the equipment used to examine her. My plan worked! Dr. Weiser was so sweet and took a few minutes to let Caroline play doctor on her with her toy tools. Then it was doctor Weiser's turn to "play doctor". Caroline went right along with the game with no tears. That was the first time she hasn't cried when her ears and mouth were being examined. When Dr. Weiser told her to open her mouth and say "ahhhh" she did it just like we practiced. This was the smoothest trip to the doctor we've had. She also got 3 shots which she did not like. She kept giving the nurse the stink eye after the shot. Later that evening she would see the bandages from the shots, point to them and whine. It was very heart-breaking to watch.
Below are her stats and a pictures.
Weight: 21lbs 7 oz 25%
Height: 31.5 in 90%
Head: 18.1 in. 50%
