We have the "big party" tomorrow - more to come on that fun event- but yesterday, we did her 3 year check up with Dr. J.
Keifer was very excited to see Dr. J., because she was aware that her check up was BECAUSE she is turning 3 years old. For months now, she's been able to tell us that "April 10" is her birthday, and she'll be 3 years old. With a Mickey Mouse cake. And a dancing party. At our church. With Miss Meghan (dance teacher). Hee hee.
Her stats were great for her age. She is no longer on the "baby "charts for development; now she's on the "big girl" charts *sniff sniff*. Dr J. and I discussed her eating habits (not good at home but awesome at Elaine's house, go figure), we discussed possibilities as to whether Keifer has night mares vs. night terrors, as she's up a lot crying and talking in the night. We talked about how she most likely has allergies. Her ears and throat and lungs were checked, as she had her second double ear infection last week and she had pneumonia in her right lung last week as well. Keifer didn't want anything to do with the eye/vision check- I think she was confused as to what the nurse expected from her and NO WAY was she going to put that 'patch' over her eye to see. She also had her blood pressure taken: the cuff gave her arm a hug, so it was cute to watch her have that done.
Overall, our girl resembles a typical, healthy 3 year old who is moving a long like she should. As always, her language skills were sky high for her age - as the girl has a vocabulary and sentence structures that would blow your mind.
Although she is ONLY in the 93rd percentile for height (ha ha), she seems like a monster to me. She's as tall and as heavy as many of my friend's children who are 5, 6 or 7 years old! She is wearing size 6 in most tops, and size 4 or 5 in bottoms, and a size 10 or 10.5 in her shoes.
