One Year Stats

Weight - 18 lbs. - 5th percentile
Height - 29 1/2 inches - 75th percentile

We didn't go to a one year well baby visit because I didn't really see the need and neither does our pediatrician. We don't vaccinate (and no, it's not because I'm afraid of autism), so the only thing they would really do there is weigh and measure her...something I was able to do quite adequately at home.

I will take her in probably around 18 months to get her lead levels tested (we found lead paint in our house that has been taken care of, but we're supposed to get her checked just to be safe).

I'm so thankful that she is so incredibly happy and healthy. I'm also thankful that I did my own research on what would be best for her health in terms of vaccinations, medications, and diet and would highly recommend every new or expectant mother to do the same!
