We went to see Dr. Guerra today for Ellie’s Two-Year Checkup. She’s in fine form!
Weight: 29 pounds 6.4 oz (81%)
Height: 35.5 inches (89%)
Head Circumference: 48.3 cm (72%)
Her weight and head circumference have been progressing at a very steady pace, but her growth in terms of height has been rather jumpy. At her one year checkup, Ellie was in the 82nd percentile for height, and at 18 months was 100%. So, it isn’t unusual for Ellie to be in the 89th percentile now. Dr. G said she’d probably be at a higher percentile at her next checkup. If she stays at 89%, she’ll likely be 5’10”.
She got her Hep-A and second H1N1 today. She didn’t like it, but she was brave.
Dr. G let Ellie listen to her heart. She went into this calm Zen state while she listened. She obviously found it fascinating. At dinner tonight, she held open up her sweater collar, looked down at her chest, and said “bump, bump.”
