I took Miss M to the doctor yesterday for her 18 month check up and shots. I suspected she was doing just fine but I was curious to see how she was growing.
Since she was born at 21 inches, the kid has been pretty well off the charts in terms of height and weight and at 18 months she is 35 inches tall, which is actually just above the height of the average 2 year old. I imagine she’ll end up about 6 feet tall when all is said and done.
When we arrived at the office the receptionist gave me a checklist for her development and we got yeses on every question – she walks up and down stairs by herself, she has plenty more than five words, she can use a spoon by herself, she responds to simple instructions.
All in all she’s an amazing kid if I do say so myself.
I’m looking forward to sentences forming, continuing the journey to potty training, I want to watch her try more and more new things – I cannot wait until we can sign her up for soccer, as playing with balls and running through grass are two of her very favourite things.
I look forward to reading longer books with her, sitting down to colour with her, showing her all the things I loved when I was a kid.
I can’t believe she’s been here for a year and a half already, but I can’t believe I haven’t known her all my life.
