15 month update!

Today Lexi had her 15 month appointment. I wasn't a happy camper to begin with because it was originally Monday and they gave me the runaround and told me the wrong time, so we didn't get to see the doctor- annoying! Today, we sat in the waiting room for an hour and 20 mins! So frustrating. I thought to myself, I am Changing doctors, but i will be keeping her! I really enjoyed her- best doctor we have seen yet. She was sweet, listened and reassured, and was very thorough! I was impressed.
Lexi weighs 20 pounds and 11 ounces and is 30 1/4 inches long. This means she is in
50-75 percentile for height
5-10 percentile for weight and
5-10 percentile for head cicrumfrence.
She is a tiny peanut but healthy overall! We had some News I was expecting and some i was shocked by! We found out she has a double ear infection. Her left ear is really bad an her right ear is just bad. The doctor had to clean her ears out just to see! If you have ever had to have your childs cleaned out, you know how terrible it is. It was awful! Then, Lexi got so upset that she projectile vomitted all over the doctor! Poor baby. So now she is on antibiotics for the next 10 days and then we will go from there. Tubes were mentioned but not unless absolutely necessary. The other thing that was discussed (even before the ead infections were diagnosed) was her speech. Lexi says mom and dad and that is just about it. She doesn't talk! She does alot of babbling but no understandable words. The doctor thinks that is a problem so she referred us to a speech therapist. She said they should be saying 3-5 words understandable to a stranger. She also said that Lexi could not be talking bc the ear infections and wax have it muffled but it is always better to be safe than sorry. So I get to call them tomorrow! She also told me how to deal with the tantrums. Could you all please keep us in your prayers? We woul greatly appreciate it! I have a peace about the situation- it is going to work out like God planned! Thanks for the prayers!

Aw, I'm sorry about Lexi's poor ears. That's never fun! I also want to encourage you about her speech. At Emma's 15-month appointment, our doctor also said 3-5 words at 15-months but that it's not a hard or fast rule. Emma was really only saying mama, dada and hi at the time, and our doc said that was perfectly fine. I wouldn't let it worry you too much! She'll be talking before you know it. ;)

praying for you girls!
