Since Kacey's titers did not come back positive for her immunizations we have to go back to the doctor every three months for her to be totally caught up on her shots by her 3rd birthday (ouch!). We used this appointment as her actual 2 year well baby visit and you'll all be happy to know that along with 5 shots (including a flu shot) she is the picture of health, weighing in at 25.5 lbs (23 lbs on October 12th) and 34.25" in height (I think she was 33.75" in October) this puts her in the 10-25% for weight and 25-50% for height...she's tracking along well according to Dr. W and the results of her bloodwork say she also has her anemia problem licked and can come off the iron. 2-year molars are also popping up on both sides, glad to know that since she's been trying to stick her entire hand in her mouth and I've certainly wondered why this little trick started so suddenly!
The best news of all is that she is on track with both her verbal and motor skills for her age. She was in a wonderful mood this visit and did all her tricks for both the Dr. and Nurse and was a total "chatty cathy", I was worried it would be another scream fest and they would have no idea where her development was at. The quote of the day from the Doctor, this is going to crack you guys up, "Kacey is such a cooperative child and so adaptable I think she is ready to visit the pediatric dentist" wholey moley was she talking about my daughter:)
A special shout out to Nana and Pop Pop who worked with Kacey everyday on both her verbal and motor skills while I was at work those 1st two months (no couch potatoes around my house) and I'm quite sure that they were a HUGE contributor to her continuing development!!! Thanks guys, can't wait to have you back again at the end of the month.

Ahh yes, the fist in the mouth routine; we have that going on here as well. We also get to experience a greater level of whining due to the pain of cutting those molars.
I am so happy Kacey is doing so great!
