Anna had her 15-month check-up at the doctor's today and our little girl is doing just great.
Tipping the scales at 23 pounds and 3 ounces, Anna is in the 50th percentile for weight, but she is in the 90th percentile for height (I can't remember her exact length). With Angie and I as her parents, I guess it's not too shocking that it appears as if Anna's going to be a tall kid.
The doctor was impressed with Anna's vocabulary and said that overall she looks "great."
Our only real concern with Anna so far is probably that she's a little spoiled. With three of us (Angie, Sammy and I) giving Anna so much attention each day, it's hard not to spoil her, especially since she's such a good girl.
We have seen her Portuguese :) temper come out of late too as she has little fits if she doesn't get her way. We are making a concerted effort of breaking her of this habit, but it's even harder than not spoiling her in the first place.
I know this is typical for a kid her age, so it's nothing abnormal or something we should be worried about, but it's just reality.
For those of you who haven't seen Anna in a few months, you really won't believe the growth, physically, mentally and socially, that has taken place over the past four months or so. Anna is like a sponge right now picking up on new things everyday. Plus, she's quite the ham, so she's constantly cracking us up.
I just can't believe she's already 15-months-old. Yikes!
