12 Month Check-up

Today Gracie had her 12 month check up. We have had a crazy few weeks and this was the first we could get in to see her Dr. She now weighs 22 lbs 2 oz. and is 29 and a quarter inches. She has grown so much. She is also speaking at a 15 month old level which is excellent. The Dr. was very impressed with her. She also had to have two shots which weren't fun but Daddy left work to meet us so I think having us both there calmed her more than if just one of us had been there.

Grace has come leaps and bounds in Physical Therapy! She is really really close to crawling. She is also pulling her self up. She gets to where she wants to be and has very unique ways of doing so. She is still a very happy baby but has definitely developed a little bit of a attitude when she doesn't get what she wants. She gives kisses on command and still sleeping through the night despite the teething. She now has 8 teeth and I believe her back teeth are coming in.

It's amazing how you can look back over the past year and see how much she has changed. She no longer looks like a baby but more like a little girl. Tomorrow we find out if she is going to have a little brother or a little sister. Hard to tell at this point but either way we are excited about the closeness between them and the relationship they will develop. She will still be my baby no matter what! She just brightens my day and gives me hope for the future.
