Ava's Well Check


Today Ava had her well check. And yep, she's still tiny! She is now 27.5 pounds, which is the 17th percentile and 38 inches tall, which is the 66th percentile. So, she's still growing, just on her own curve. It shouldn't surprise anyone that she's doing things HER way.

Anyway, she did great at her appointment. She was a little leery about going to the doctor (I don't WAAAANNNNAAA go to the doctor!), but Drew came with us and showed her everything she'd have to do. I think it was good for both of them. Drew could see that not every trip to the doctor is for him to be poked and prodded and also feel good about showing Ava the ropes. And Ava did better since Drew was there to help.

Glad she is doing so well, but she's not as tiny as our boy! Myles was 26 lbs. 6 oz. and 33 1/4" tall. 4th% for weight and not on the charts for height - but we're pleased he's on "his own curve" also. :) Hope you're having a great week!

And I'm sure Drew felt like a big (brave) boy, showing his little sis the ropes. I'm glad it went well!
