As promised, I have an update from Abigail’s appointment on Monday. Overall, it was a great appointment filled with new stats, information on solids (which I’m happy to report I’ll be going into great detail on), and lots of pictures.
Yes, pictures (come on, are you really surprised?).
KiKi came along and acted as the photographer for the day (and did a great job!). The goal was to document what the process is like at Abigail’s pediatrician’s office. In my personal opinion, I find them very friendly, professional, and up to date (a pediatrician who uses iPads and computer screens in every room? Who knew).
Anyway, I’ll start out with some stats:
1.25.11 (1st Doctor’s Appointment)
- BMI: 13.3
- Height: 18.99″ (~50th percentile)
- Weight: 6.82 lbs (~25th percentile)
- Head Circumference: 13.19″ (~30th percentile)
7.25.11 (6 Months Later)
- BMI: 16.2
- Height: 25.6″ (~50th percentile)
- Weight: 15.05 lbs (~30th percentile)
- Head Circumference: 16.53″ (~30th percentile)
According to her pediatrician, Abby is in great health, she’s “very strong” and she “really likes people.” Sounds accurate to me!
Here’s a look at the process…
Overall, it was a great day. Stay tuned for our journey into solid foods…this is going to be fun!
