Today was Sasha's first appointment with our pediatrician and I am proud to report that our little one is on the charts! Sasha is 23 1/2 pounds, putting her in the 16th percentile for weight, and 31 1/2 inches tall for the 8th percentile in height! It's amazing to think of the growth she's experienced over the last couple of months - in October she only weighed 16 pounds! Good love, solid food, and lots of prayer sure has made a world of difference to our baby girl.
At this rate, I may not be able to use Sasha's favorite mode of transportation (the laundry basket) for much longer! Our pediatrician couldn't believe how well Sasha is doing. In fact, she walked in the room and looked at us and had to check her chart twice - she thought that she had come into the wrong exam room because Sasha is so awesomely chunky!
And this appointment went so much better than our clinic visit in Kaz. No tears (except for the shots), although Sasha was definitely appropriately wary and wasn't about to be let out of my arms. The doctor said that everything's looking good and Sasha is definitely thriving with us, so tomorrow we'll contact Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake and start working on closing that palate!
