One Year Check-up

Checking out her weight at the pediatrician's office! Getting bigger.

One Year:
Weight: 18lbs. 5oz. (10th percentile YAY!)
Height: 30 3/4 inches (95th percentile)
Head circumference: 17 1/4 inches (20th percentile)

The day after Maddie's 1st birthday she had her one year well child check up.....I know it's taken me a while to post this. :-) As usual she got all weighed in and measured. The doctor was very happy with her weight gain and growth overall. She is now in the 10th percentile for weight, which is quite a change from the 5th percentile for the last 9 months or so. Still a very LONG and LEAN little girl however, as she grew 2 whole inches in just 3 short months.

Her doctor was also very pleased with her social skills and intellectual self. I mean I think we have a pretty bright girl on our hands, but of course I am a bit biased. She feels like she is right on track with all the skills she was able to show her. She definitely is not a shy girl.

These days, Maddie is literally running around the house. She honestly would rather pick up random objects and walk around the house with them. She prefers this exploring much more than all the wonderful toys she got for her birthday. :-) She loves showing mommy and daddy her nose, ears, and toes. Although lately is getting her noes and toes mixed up! LOL. She is a very proud girl and often claps with praise after completing a task or making mommy and daddy happy. As she has for a very long time now, she continues to LOVE dancing to any music she hears.

Maddie is still a very vocal little one often being called a "squealer pig" because of her high pitch squeal. What a joyful noise....kidding. She does say a few words which consist of "momma," "dadda," "what," and "ball." Her most recent word being "ball".....for some reason anytime she says it she says so with a whisper. So cute!

This past year has truly been the most amazing year as we have watched this little girl grow into a toddler. Really?!?! Am I saying my little lady is a toddler?!? It's so hard to believe that a year ago we were meeting her for the very first time. What a blessing and joy she has been to all of us! It's her smile that has helped us make it through the tough times of the past year. WE LOVE YOU MADDIE!!!

  1. A "squealer pig"? I don't think she will like to hear that when she's older... Maybe she just wants to make sure that she gets her point across! Can't believe where the time has gone... See you soon!
