Kara's 12-month check-up

Kara's appointment was re-scheduled for today after being sick last week. She weighs 17 lbs and 15 oz--so close to that 18 lb mark! That's what Kathy weighed at 1 yr old, says Kara's Nana. Kara is also 28 3/4 inches tall. So, she is definitely getting longer, but still lean. The pediatrician said it is okay to start weening her off the bottle and give her whole milk in the sippy cup, and also feed her snacks in between the three meals. We were given samples of PediaSure, which will help supplement on days when Kara doesn't feel like eating as much--gotta get those calories in there somehow. Kara's a pretty good eater, but she doesn't seem to be interested in that many kinds of table food. She is still liking jar food, but has at least ventured on to stage 3, which is much chunkier. She has four teeth--two on top and two on the bottom. Kara has a very cute, toothy smile! She received two immunizations today, and no fever has occurred yet. We're checking her often, though!
