1 Year Check-up

We visited the pediatrician's office this morning for Ella's 1 year check-up. She did pretty well...however she has an intuition about the doctor's office and starts getting apprehensive as soon as we get there. When Dr. Trumbull comes in she immediately gets scared. That's so weird because she's not like that with anybody else. Accept at the church nursery, but that doesn't count. :-) I think I've said before but I just want to say again how much I love our pediatrician's office. Not only is Dr. Trumbull a good doctor, but he's a Christian and that comes through in all of his parenting advice. Love that!

So anyways, Ella weighed in at 18 lbs 11oz which is the 15th percentile and 30 1/4 inches which is the 85th percentile. So she's still a tall and lean girl. I think she burns just about every single calorie that she takes in because she's so darn hyper! She had to get 3 shots today which was sad...the first one was no problem, but the medicine in the second 2 stung when they went in and so she didn't like that at all. Plus she's having a little bit of a side effect with a fever this evening so she's a little out of sorts.

Here's a picture from today. It's terrible because I thought she was about to fall off the table but I tried to get one from every visit during the first year.
And here's a picture that my talented hubby took of Ella this afternoon. Who knew that we have 2 photographers in the family! :-) Maybe a new hobby for Keith?? ...haha...doubt it!
