Clinic waiting room...
|Daddy and Madeline waiting...|
Overall, the check-up went well. The doctor listened to her lungs and said they sounded "clear." She is in the 79th percentile for weight and 86 percentile for her height. She is bound to be one tall girl since she nearly grew an inch in 2 months! We were pleased that she seems to growing and gaining weight well.
We are hopeful that in the coming months we can encourage her to drink milk. The clinic was a little worried about her calcium intake. Even though Madeline does eat yogurt for breakfast, it seems as though this is not enough calcium for her at this age. We have tried to flavor her milk or offer it in different sippy cups but it has never worked. She simply just pushes it away. Madeline enjoys drinking water with EVERY MEAL. Water is simply her drink of choice. I am hoping that over time we can change this. :)
As far as Pseudo goes...her culture results will come back sometime next week. I will update as I find out the results. We are hoping for the best, but truly expecting to see Pseudo show it's ugly self. Many thanks to everyone who has posted encouraging comments on facebook and our blog. We truly appreciate all your thoughts. Your comments help keep us going!!!!
