18 Months

Cora had her 18-month "well baby" appointment. She's 50 percentile in height and weight. And "very advanced" (according to her doctor (proud momma)) in both language and gross motor skills. He went so far as to "warn" us that if/when we have another child to not expect our next baby to meet milestones as quickly as Cora has. Whatev. He (or she) will be just as brilliant (how could they not be!) but anyway, we were so proud to know that Cora is doing so well, I really didn't think she was ahead of the curve, statistically.

Mel has started his clinicals. I think he's enjoying them (he has to physically assess some cute, young, co-ed next week!) and I'm trying to support him, but I miss him. Cora and I have gotten so used to having him around all the time, its an adjustment. Cora and I did bath and bedtime by ourselves for the first time in MONTHS. She did well, but when I was rocking her before bed she kept yelling for daddy. I just kept telling her "daddy is at school, you'll see him in the morning." It was sad, but she's adjusting pretty well.

She has fallen in love with the dolly her Uncle Everett and cousin Makayla got for her. She has to have her in bed with her to go to sleep. She carries her all over the house and feeds her and rocks her to sleep. It's so sweet. Anyway, that's it for now! Ta ta.
