12 month stats

Alida had her 12 month well check-up this past Wednesday. She was a handful in the office! Waiting for the doctor to come in never felt so incredibly long before! This girl does not sit still these days! The past couple of nights have been a struggle getting her to bed….she just wants to stay up and play! We try to get her down at 8 pm or so but it’s been more like 9 or 10 pm these days!

Without further ado:
Weight: 18 lbs 10 oz (10th percentile)
Length: 28 inches (also 10th percentile)
Head: 18 ¾ (90th percentile! this girl's got brains!)
Teeth: 4 total

There is one thing that is a bit of a concern though. Alida does not use her left hand as efficiently as her right. At her age it is a cause for concern because handedness shouldn't be as apparent until babies are at least 3 years old. We have been referred to an Occupational Therapist who specializes in fine motor skills. Hopefully we are making a mountain out of a mole hill…but the doctor thought it best to get things checked out in case we can do something to increase her ability to use her left hand and avoid future problems. Besides that she has gotten a clean bill of health. She will have to go and get blood work done for the first time though....not looking forward to that!

2 hugs:
