We went to see Sasha's pediatrician today (I seriously love that woman, she's so wonderful!) We had to get some blood drawn for lead testing and there was no way I was doing it alone (I know I'm a wuss, but I just could not watch that), so we had papa come along with us for that part. The blood draw went very well, thankfully, the doctor gave me a prescription for a creme to be put on her arms prior to the draw and she didn't seem to be even bothered by the needle (in fact, I was told she was watching as the doctor inserted the needle!) I am glad it's over though!
Here are her stats at 11 months: weight - 20.5lbs (51st percentile); height - 28.5" (56th percentile). She seems to be evening out and averaging out. The doctor was very happy with all her stats, and said she'll probably end up a skinny tall girl. She gave us the go ahead to start cow's milk and eggs in a couple of weeks, which should add some variety to her breakfasts.
And just because I feel bad leaving you all off without any cute pictures of our little Miss, here's her splashing around in her baby pool at grandma and grandpa's today:
