18 Month check-up

Today was Sakura's 18 month well-check appt. We had to postpone it a bit since we were gone to California when she turned 18 months.

Sakura now weighs 24 lbs (50%) and she is 31 inches long (25%)! Everything is great and Sakura is progressing along at the same pace which is what they like to see.

This pose cracked me up - she looks so laid back waiting for Dr. Amon to come in...moments later she was ripping the paper liner and getting in the diaper bag - guess the hour long wait in the lobby had her going stir crazy even though she never made a peep while we waited.

All done :) Only we weren't really - there were two shots at today's visit which we hadn't gotten at this point! Sakura did fine, she cried a bit, but stopped real quick.
Since Sakura is 18 months old now - a big 1 1/2 year old (unbelievable to me!!!) -
I thought it would be fun to list 18 of Sakura's favorite things (in no particular order - although the first one is probaby #1 on her list!).
  1. Daddy
  2. Mommy
  3. Gohan (rice)
  4. Japanese TV shows - Inai, Inai, Baa, With Mother, and Pythagoraswitch Mini
  5. The book - Moo, Baa, La La La and she has me read it about 4 times each time
  6. Ice cubes!
  7. Her blanket when it's bedtime - but she doesn't really carry it around any other time
  8. Miso soup
  9. Food (in general)
  10. Playing outside
  11. The book - Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?
  12. Saying NO (or no, no, no, no, no if she really doesn't want something - shaking her head)
  13. Playing with anything and everything in the cabinets (we don't have locks so I am constantly putting things back, several times a day - just for Sakura to get it all back out!)
  14. Climbing up and down on the kitchen chairs, step stools, bathtub steps, our bed, etc.
  15. Coloring (aka: scribbling) with colored pencils - not crayons
  16. Watching videos on everyone's blogs
  17. Dancing
  18. Daddy throwing her in the air

Wow! She grew a lot and those are awesome numbers that shows she is right where she should be--healthy and happy! Seth likes a lot of those 18 things too. She is such a cutie patootie!
