2 year Appt!
Today was Dasha's 2 year appt. check-up. She weighed 24.6 lbs. and was 33.5 inches tall. So since we brought her home 4 months ago, she has gained 2.6 lbs and 2.5 inches. She had moved up to the 28th percentile for weight and 20th for height. She is up to about 30-35 words, still behind a regular 2 year old, but the doctor is not concerned at all. She was actually pretty impressed with her language skills. She had to get a finger prick to check her iron level, which was normal, so we get to stop taking the iron supplement! Yeah!! She got two more shots, and we have one more in 4 weeks. Then some in 6 months, and then a year later. Amazing how long it takes to get caught up on shots when they are not started at birth. Then we had to go to the lab and get her blood drawn to check for lead, and check her vitamin levels for Calcium and D. That was traumatic! She unfortunately got stuck in both arms, the lady couldn't get a vein in her first arm and was successful in her other arm. Dasha cried all the way home, and about 30 minutes after I got some Tylenol in her. Once the Tylenol kicked in she was back to her raring self running and playing hard!
