Height: 30 inches, 30 percentile
Weight: 22 pounds, 45 percentile
Head 18 1/2 inches, 75 percentile
Weight to length is 70%, which is perfect for her. Daniel asked the doctor about the low percentiles on height and weight and the doctor said Abigail is perfect because her growth curve is looking perfect, so not to worry much about the percentile. The doctor was VERY impressed with Abigail's social skills and said she was fairly advanced for her age, particularly with her words and her timing with words. Of course, we're so proud!
Lately, Abigail has refused meals and then wanted snacks, which we sometimes gave into. We've been told that Abigail eats when we eat and what we eat...and not to feed "a la carte" meals or snacks. If we feed her supplement meals or only what she wants, she will train us, instead of us training HER! So, we may be getting to a fussier age where Abigail gets frustrated with not getting her way...but that's alright.
All in all, a great check up! She came by my office afterwards and waved "Hi" and "bye-bye" to everyone. There were completely charmed. Daniel is now taking her home for a nap after her shots!
