We Have a Well Baby
We learned at Daphne 18 month appointment today that she finally weighs 20lbs! It is now officially legal that she can face forward her in car seat. We're not in any hurry to switch her around, especially since it's encouraged that kids face backwards until they are two. Plus it's kind of nice in a way that she can't see me when we're driving. When she sees me she tends to whine a lot and want me to get things for her.
Daphne is in the 3rd percentile for height (20.3 lbs), 0 percentile for height (26.5 in) and her head continues to amaze us by being in the 90th percentile. But here is an interesting tidbit for anyone who cares...her doctor plugged her into his brand new percentile chart for children with achondroplasia where she is 50th percentile for height and and 0 percentile for head size. What do you know, in some circles she may actually be considered tall.
And just because, here is Daphne one year ago at her 6 month visit. She had shorter hair back then.
