15 months and going strong

By K.J. Cardinal

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!

  1. I'm so glad Anna made out well at her 15 month check up, we already knew she was perfect, its just nice to get it acknowledged by a professional!
    We got to see her "ham it up" when we were at Hard Rock Cafe with Auntie Donna and Uncle Jim. She had us all in stitches.
    Hope we can see her again soon. I love this stage, Love Mom
