Fifteen Months (Not Quite) Well Baby Visit

Doing squats off the scale at the doctor's office

Calliope's fifteen month well baby visit was today, though technically she's not fifteen months until tomorrow.

All looks great!

She's 30.5 inches (50th percentile) and I forget her head measurement but it was 25 percentile, and 19 pounds 6 ounces (5th percentile).

I was shocked that she wasn't past 20 pounds because she feels a lot heavier, but she's been consistently on the 5% curve for a little while now, well, she was below it at twelve months but back to it at 13.5 and 15 months, so the doctor is satisfied that she is growing consistently. As for me, well, it's hard to look at the rolls on her thighs and be worried!

She got three shots, including her second flu shot, and the doctor and I, who are friend-ish, had a nice chat about various topics unrelated to Calliope. She was wildly enthusiastic about the changes in my physique. That always makes me feel super awkward, because I have very mixed feeling about the attention our society pays to women's weight, but it was very flattering, too.
