one year checkup

Friday, 22 October 2010

sparklet went in for a checkup this morning, and she’s still ginormous — weighing in at 25.4 lbs (94th percentile) and standing almost 32 inches tall (off the charts at 97th+ percentile).

two notable developments.

first, we got an official diagnose from the doctor on sparklet’s mental state, when she was careening around like a lunatic, trying not to get measured:

wow, she really hates not being in control — doesn’t she?

(yup, thanks for the newsflash.)

second, sparklet got four vaccinations — bringing her total lifetime count of shots up to thirteen — and had two vials of blood pulled by D.C. to test for lead and tuberculosis.

there was a lot of screaming and yelling, but it quickly subsided once the needles went away — enough that she was clapping along to the music in the car ride home.

no harm, no foul.
