The 20-Pound Milestone

Today was another scheduled weigh-in at the pediatrician's office. I was prepping Audrey all week, telling her to eat up, and think heavy thoughts! One day shy of her 18-month birthday, Audrey walked herself in to the doc's office, sat on the scale, and passed the 20 pound mark! Passed? Yes! Passed... well, by .2 of an ounce, but still! Finally!

With a sigh of relief, we chatted with the doc, and she told us that Audrey, although still in the 3rd percentile, no longer needs weigh-ins, because she's in the clear with her growth and development. She's out of the danger zone for growth/development disorders, and we can contribute her small size 100% to genes. She's just going to be a petite girl, and that's OK with us! We have also been informed that, despite her peers passing her up in the teething department, she's well within the normal dental spectrum, too. Clearly she can make those 6 pearly whites work, as she is gaining weight like she should!

So, we are off the every-2-months weigh-in visits and back to the once-a-year well-baby exams, and in the clear to relax and do what we do! Whew! what will I worry about?
