Doctor Stats

15 months:

Weight: 19.2 lbs.
Length: 28 1/2 in.

HG is cutting teeth, so she was a little fussy at our appointment today.  Her favorite part of the visit was playing with the crinkly paper.  The doctor said everything looked great.  He is going to give HG some time to walk before referring us to a physical therapist.  He thinks that she is going to walk on her own time, and if she isn't taking steps by 17 months we can intervene with physical therapy.  No worries over muscle development delaying her ability.  He mostly described it as a mental fear since she understands that she cannot walk, and she will most likely hurt herself if she falls.  He prescribed  "excited motivation" and "exaggerated praise" with all new steps towards walking.  I think we can do that :)
