18 Month Well Check and Other Updates

Monday afternoon we had Izabel's 18 month well check. She is almost 19 months but with Tanner being born we wanted to schedule Izabel out a little further so I would be well enough to take her. She now weighs 22 lbs and is 31 inches long. That keeps her in the same percentiles as before (20th for weight and 50th for height) which means she is growing appropriately but still small. Dr. Scott was impressed that she knows most of the body parts and a ton of animal sounds. He wasn't concerned that she isn't really talking because she is babbling so much. He says kids that do that end up to be excellent talkers and very smart! He was also impressed that she used the potty! She didn't have to get any shots this time and she doesn't have to go back until she is two!!! I can't believe it. Of course now that we are done with the constant well checks for her we start going in all the time for Tanner! It's a good thing we like Dr. Scott!

In other news Tanner is 3 weeks old today and his cord stump FINALLY fell off. I can't believe it took this long. I can't wait to give him a bath tonight. He hated the sponge baths because he would get so cold but I hope he likes real baths. He actually had a really good night last night and slept in his crib between two feedings! It made a big difference in my day. I'm still having a hard time adjusting and I don't have much help now that Noah is working all the time but I'll survive. I'll be able to handle it better once I start getting more sleep!

Izabel is suffering from a pretty yucky cold today. I thought it was just allergies at first. It started with a nasty cough at night and in the morning. Today her nose is running and she has a fever. I've been trying to keep her away from Tanner as much as possible while still comforting her while she doesn't feel good but it's not easy!

Last but not least...Noah DID NOT go to poker last night! Enough said!!!
