15 Month Checkup

Better late than never, right? Abigail has been sick for the past couple weeks with a horrible cough so I had to reschedule it. We finally went yesterday and you know that you have no worries about your child when you spend it talking about your other child. Here are Abigail's stats (if I don't put them on the blog, I will lose the paper and forget them.)

Weight: 24 lbs - 63rd percentile
Height: 30.5 inches - 43rd percentile
Head circumference: 48 cm - 90th percentile

Holy cow, she has a big head. No wonder I can't get shirts to fit her because I can't get them over her head. But, it has to be big for her big 'ole brain. This girl is so very smart. She is very advanced for her age in the things she is able to do. She has already used the potty about 4-5 times and knows exactly what she is supposed to do. And she thinks she needs to do everything big sister does. She also already knows how to throw a temper tantrum and can be very very stubborn. And at this age she still looks really cute doing it. LOL! She is very sweet, very loving and loves cuddling up in the chair to read books.

I'm thankful for each and every day with my two girls and feel so blessed to be their mom.

Olivia went back to school today and is doing well.

Scary Evening

First I'll start by saying that Olivia is okay, but it's been a rough evening. A friend from school who lives down the street invited Olivia over to play. This was the first time she has been over to a friend's house to play without me there. So, kind of a big step for me (and her.) Afterwards they were just going to walk her home since it's just down the street. While walking home on the sidewalk with her friend and her friend's mom, a car backed into Olivia. It bumped her just hard enough to knock her backwards and she hit her head on the concrete. Imagine my complete horror when I heard this news (and I know her friend's mom was pretty upset as well.)

We spent the evening at the ER because Olivia was throwing up, which is very dangerous with a head injury. They did a ct scan which showed no bleeding, but she does have a mild concussion. We are home now, but have to keep a close eye on her for the next 72 hours. Please say a prayer for a quick and full recovery.

After losing Logan, I am (as expected) very protective of Olivia. And just when I feel like I'm getting a hold of my anxiety, something like this happens. And years of therapy come undone. You just never know what each day holds.
