Good morning all and Happy Martin Luther King’s Day! 👍🏽💪🏽

The Squally Squad is starting the day at the doctor’s office for a standard 15 month check up. As much as I hate going to the doctor for myself and hate waiting to be seen, I do love bringing Lariah to the doctor! It is very important to have regular doctor visits for our children to make sure they are healthy and active! Even if we don’t always agree with what our doctors are doing. For example, Lariah’s doctor’s office asks us a million questions about whether or not she’s weaned from the bottle or breast and what kind milk she’s drinking, never considering that she’s still exclusively drinking breastmilk at 15 months. Per usual, I just educate and advocate, as if these health professionals don’t already know that breast is best, despite the commonality of formula feeding.

Anyway, as of today Squally is 21 lbs and 1.3 oz, which is the 45th percentile. She’s 29 & 3/4 inches tall, which is the 20th percentile. And her head also falls into the 20th percentile at 17.5 inches. Now I’ll be completely honest, I don’t really see the point of the doctors telling me what percentile she is. I mean, I understand that it gives them an idea of where she falls in comparison to other children and it’s a good topic of conversation when talking to other moms of children in the same age category, but other than that, I don’t think I really need to know. It just makes parents of small children feel bad and uncomfortable for having a child who just has a genetic predisposition and natural tendency to be small. And there’s nothing wrong with that!

So now we wait on the nurse to come in and stab my baby with 3 needles, one for Hib, DTap, and Varicella. While that makes me sad, I do understand the necessity of vaccinations in keeping disease at bay.

We leave y’all with some cute doctor’s office pictures!


Peep her BlueBerry Little Red Organic Simplex diaper 😀👍🏽🙃
