So you want me to just stand here and look cute?
How about a cheese face?
Ha ha ha, you can't catch me!
So back to the doctor's appointment...Anna Kate seems to be growing strong and healthy and we are so grateful for what a blessing that is! Here are her stats and percentiles:
Weight: 26 lbs. 4 oz. (75th percentile)
Height: approximately 32 inches...she didn't cooperate extremely well for this one. So technically that's the 55th percentile, but our doctor said she didn't think that was very accurate!
Other than the height check, Anna Kate was actually much more cooperative than I thought she was going to be! She really didn't fuss too much when the Doctor wanted to look in her eyes and ears and mouth and listen to her heartbeat. She even wanted to give the doctor a hug after it was all over!
She only had to get one shot and one finger prick today, so that part went pretty quickly and she calmed right back down. Here she is being a little dramatic about it though, and showing off her wounds:
Can you believe they did this to me?
The only not-so-good part of the check-up was that the Dr. confirmed what I had suspected about some dry patches on the back of Anna Kate's legs...our blonde-haired, blue-eyed, fair-skinned baby girl has eczema that will probably come and go especially when it is very hot or very cold out. So we now have some special soap to use for her, but if any of you all have any home remedies that have worked well for you or any of your kids, please let me know! We would love to try to go that route and avoid ongoing prescription ointments if we can. My first project is going to be making my own laundry detergent, so we'll see how it goes!
