Avery went for her 2 month well visit. And, since I use this blog as an online scrapbook I just wanted to say for the record that she is 23.5 pounds (15th percentile), 35 inches long (over 50th percentile) and doing great. The only area I am concerned with is her speech. As I've mentioned before, she doesn't talk much at all (unlike her mama!) and can say probably 30 words or less. The chart at the office said that she should be saying 300 words and talking in simple sentences (which I've only heard her do twice). Dr. K said if I'm concerned it is probably best to start speech therapy, just so she can be evaluated (to confirm there are no hearing issues, etc.). So, I am looking into that, but I also agree with most people who say, "She'll start talking when she's ready." After one year, you aren't supposed to use being a preemie as the reason for being behind on developmental goals, but I still feel like she may just be 3 months behind!
I'm so proud of my beautiful little, strong willed toddler. She is such a miracle in our life and I can't imagine life without her. More birthday posts to follow!
