Chickie is 15 months old today. Does that seem totally crazy and just not possible to anyone else? But indeed, it is true. We had her 15 month check up today. Only one shot - YAY! And she didn't even make a peep - double YAY!
Here are Chickie's stats:
Weight: 23 lbs, 5 oz. - 59th percentile
Height: 31.5 inches - 80th percentile (must get that from Daddy!)
Head: 17.75 cm(?) - I don't know what percentile that is, but it is on the low end of normal, so contrary to what Daddy thinks, Chickie does NOT have a giant melon.
Also new today, our first time out. After repeatedly telling Chickie "No" when she played in the dogs water bowl only to have her turn around and laugh, I took the advice a friend gave me the other day and did a time out. I set the timer for 2 minutes, picked her up and went to our newly designated "naughty spot" and sat down with her, holding her and not talking to her. She screamed and struggled and cried harder than I think I have ever heard her cry. I was near tears. It was the longest 2 minutes of my life. When the timer went off I turned her around, told her we don't play in the dog's water bowl and she needs to listen to mommy, and gave her a hug. She was pretty ticked for the rest of the evening. Yet she only wanted me to hold her. When Matt came home to her walking around crying and whining, I had to explain to him our new timeout procedure. I don't think I am going to like this discipline thing!
Here is a photo I took last night. She looks so...tell me. What do you think is the expression on her face?
And finally, I was just goofing around taking pictures with my new toy, ahem, I mean camera, and got an awesome blurry background. So what if it is a picture of a toy...it is ALL ABOUT THE BLURRY BACKGROUNDS!!
