was on Monday (a bit belated). We changed from the pediatric office to a family office because we just weren't happy with how lax the ped could be about some things. Juliana saw a PA who was wonderful. She was very thorough! She did a whole bunch of tests on her ears and thinks they are fine now, but may have had fluid before and slowed down her speech a bit. We talked about things we could do to help her speech, but, of course, Juliana started babbling away during her appointment! I was shocked and a bit embarrassed that I had just expressed how concerned I was about her lack of sounds. She is still a bit behind....only making B and G consonants, but she is progressing. The doc does want to have her allergy tested, though. She thinks Ana has an intolerance but says it will just help give us more information. Her children had food allergies, so she seemed to really know the ropes on that subject (she had an elimination diet much worse than mine) Our old pediatrician didn't have kids. Ana's weight was 16lb 14oz and her height was 26 1/2 inches. Just a few oz and a 1/4 inch bigger than Cori at her 9 month (but Ana's is 2 weeks later too). 15th percentile and it will just go down from here .

She is starting to practice walking on her own now. Yesterday she turned over a basket, pushed it up against the couch, climbed onto it and nearly pulled her whole body onto the couch. We are in trouble with this little monkey!

sounds like overall a really good appt - our Pedi has kids too (young ones) and I think it makes a HUGE difference in how they understand treating our LOs from a parents perspective.

And how cool that Ana's starting to walk!!! We need a video of her steppin' out!!

about climbing! And I swear that they wait until we say something *just* to embarrass us! It's like they're trying to get their shots in before they become teenagers and we turn the tables!
