Haven had her 18m well-check today!! I prepped her a bunch beforehand. I told her all things Dr. Welka was going to do (listen to her with a stethoscope, look at her ears, look at her eyes) and I even told her that she was going to get shots, but that she'd get a surprise when she was done. She was very excited! All morning long she was saying "Go Dr. Welka's? Go Dr. Welka's? Listen heart beep? Give Dr. Welka hugs and kisses? Get shot? Get surprise?" Lol, she always calls heart beats "heart beeps" and she didn't give Dr. Welka hugs or kisses, haha. :)
The nurse that we usually have was out sick, and I really liked the nurse that she got this time! Haven did really well! She measured in at the following:
WEIGHT: 25lbs, 12 oz (75%- the nurse looked at her chart and was annoyed that they weighed her at the walk in at 27lbs with all her clothes and shoes on last time and it made a weird spike in her chart, lol)
HEIGHT: 36 inches (100+%- well off the charts, lol!)
HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE: 48.5 cm (90%)
So here is her updated charts:
Looks like she will be tall and thin like the rest of her family, lol, no real shocks there! I am betting that she is going to be even taller than me! :)
Haven was talking like crazy to the nurse and the doctor. Dr. Welka kept saying how different my 2 girls are since it took Venily FOREVER to finally start talking to her, lol! Haven checked out great!!! Her blood tests from last time all look good. Her lead level was less than a 2, which I guess is good. And her ears are all clear! YAY!!! (I can totally tell that she is starting to feel a lot better b/c she actually slept all through the night last night in her own bed and is taking a nap as I type this in her OWN bed! Hopefully we are done with ear problems for good now! Also, 3 out of her 4 teeth that she is working on are cut through, so hopefully that will be done soon too!). Everything else with Haven is just perfect! She is well ahead of everything she is supposed to be doing at this point and the Dr. just went over a ton of different safety things to watch out for in the summer. She also commented on how her belly button hernia has gotten much smaller! When she said it, it was the first time I really noticed that it had gotten a lot smaller as well!
And a wonderful surprise... NO SHOTS this time!!! Yay! As we were walking out to the car Haven was confused looking at her surprise (which was destroyed before we even got home) and kept asking me... "Get shot, Mommy?" Lol, I was happy to say "Nope, not this time!". She won't need shots again until her 2 year well check in 6 months!
