One year check up

Seems I birthed a long skinny baby. 31" long (97th percentile!) and 20lbs 9oz (50th percentile).

Got the go ahead for all food groups except nuts; was told to introduce real milk in the sippy cup so that when I decide to wean from nursing, Ava will take the milk from the sippy cup and not refuse it because "sippy cups have only been for water and juice." Makes sense. Right now the milk sippy cup is sitting on the floor. Ava's not a focused drinker; she prefers to drink on the go and revisit any sippy cup she has laying around. Won't work so well with milk, I'm afraid.

She had two shots and so far has shown no ill effect. She ate lunch and is now playing with a baby bundt pan on the kitchen floor.

Ran into Wal-Mart on the way home (probably the 12th level of hell compared to Joe's 6th level of hell: Babies-R-Us). Got buttons and ribbon to finish the dress I was hoping to make Ava for her birthday. It's now a Christmas dress!

Best get cracking if I want the dress to fit her by the time she actually wears it!
