14-month Pedi appointment

Sasha had another pedi appointment today where she, grumpily, got two shots: hepatitis A and the flu (flu shots are given in two smaller doses to young children, so we're going to go back for the second dose in a month). The kiddo was happy, reading her books and playing with the dr's stamp and stethoscope up until the dr. pulled out the needles. The good thing is that I put on some lidocaine creme that the dr. prescribed for Sasha to put on before, so she didn't seem to be in any pain, but she looked at me like I betrayed her. The poor thing! Some more good news is I think she has one set o shots left until closer to a year, so that will make for a nice and friendly check-ups before then.
Here are her stats: height: 30" (61st percentile); weight: 22lbs (46th percentile). This time, since Miss Sasha is clearly such a grown-up little girl, she was weighed on an adult scale and measured on the growth chart pinned to the wall (instead of laying down) for the first time. It was really fun to see that. I think we may be putting up our growth chart in her room soon too!

Now we're of to go hang out outside, since the weather is so beautiful (it's in the mid-60s here today). There will most likely be photos to upload later.
