samantha had her 18 month well-check yesterday. she is 26.5 pounds, and 34 inches tall. which means she is in the 79th percentile for weight and the 99th percentile for height. i kinda felt like a loser after the appointment because the doc was asking me all the questions like, does she know 5+ words, does she know any body parts etc.... ya, it never even crossed my mind to teach her the names of things. (ya, i deserve the mother of the year award!) last night i started asking her where her nose is etc and it only took a couple times before she knew what i was asking. i'm pretty sure i had taught annie and katelyn the names of animals and their sounds by now too. i still see samantha as my little baby, and yesterday it dawned on me that she's a little girl now. the doc asked if she has had any interest in the potty...ya that shocked me into reality. i can't believe she'll be old enough for potty training in 6 months. time goes by so fast. i'm so grateful for healthy children....who develop and grow even if i'm no help!
