Little Miss Minion had her 15 Month checkup this morning, so I have new stats, as promised. She is 17 pounds, 8.9 ounces, which is about 9 1/2 times her birth weight. She is 27 1/2 inches tall, which is s little over twice her birth length. She’s at 7 percentile on the FULL TERM growth chart. Which is awesome. This means that if you took 100 girls born on her birthday at full term, she would outweigh 6 of them.
The pediatrician is very happy with her. She’s doing great in terms of growth, and she’s doing really well developmentally, even using her chronological age. She got more shots today, so we can kiss chicken pox, MMR, and Hep A goodbye.
Next month will be a busy one. She’s got an opthamologist appointment to check out her eyes, a nicu follow up clinic, her early intervention meeting, and probably a new orthotics appointment. Busy, busy, busy. Such is the life of a former micropreemie.
And, we have an almost-walker! She uses her walker to walk across the house. It’s her new favorite thing.
