Emma's 12 Month Dr Appt

Yesterday we saw Emma's pediatrician, Dr. Dudley. Everyone was so excited to see Emma & to see how big she's getting. She weighs 16 lbs 2 oz and is 27 inches long. The doctor was happy with her weight gain & everything. We also talked about everything she does now like waving bye-bye, eating some food by herself, standing, walking with help, etc & she says she is right on track for 9-12 months. We will wait until May to start whole milk all the time b/c Emma needs all of the nutrition from the formula still. However, she said if we want to give her milk some of the time that is fine, just don't use it for her main intake. Other than that the appt was great...well not the shot part! She got 2 shots & then they pricked her finger which was pitiful! It's so hard to sit there & hold your baby while she's in pain & not be able to do anything. She had tears streaming down her face and she just looked at me. After a few seconds she was fine and enjoyed her new purple band-aid. So it was a wonderful appt & we go back in 3 months!
