15 Month Checkup

We had our 15 month appointment today. Piper did really well and weighs 24.4 lbs (75%) and is 33 inches long (95%). Dr. Nazer said she is doing great and said she won't need to come back until she is two. That surprised me since I figured she would return at 18 months. She should be in a toddler bed by then, and her vocabulary should increase, along with her stubborness.

She received two shots today, DTaP and PCV. She was scheduled to get the MMR, but Erick is concerned about autism risks and refused it. She needs it eventually, but since she's not in daycare, it's fine if we wait. She can get it at her 2 year appointment. This way she didn't have to have so many shots all at once today. The doctor says she is definitely not at risk and is advanced for her age. There's nothing to worry about. It's funny that she mentioned she is ahead of where she should be since I haven't told her even half the stuff that Piper can do.
