A lot has happened since last I blogged. It isn't that I haven't wanted to blog it is more that my life is getting more complex and I seem to have less time. With that said I'll be keeping this brief.
Eily's head is measuring large. 49 cm at her 18 month check up. She'll have to be seen in 6 more weeks for a check up and a possible cat scan of her head.
Her height is good at 32 and 3/4 inches.
Weight is 25.6 lbs.
She is into everything.
She climbs up the stairs to the big slides now.
Eily likes to help with the housework and can work the carpet sweeper all on her own. If I left her alone with the vacuum I'm sure she'd have that figured out next!
If I don't watch her she likes to take Daddy's clothing, that was neatly folded and stacked, and put it in the hamper.
Eily is cutting her two year old molars. She still likes to drink her stage 3 milk from a bottle. If we put it into a sippy cup she'll drink a little and just leave it there. Fine if it is water but formula is expensive. Sure we could just give her bovine milk but it doesn't have all the vitamins that stage 3 Enfamil has in it. DH discussed this with E's doctor this past week and tried to make the doctor understand why we still give formula. He said that you either prescribe her liquid vitamins or we are going to keep giving her formula for her age. The doctor backed down.
Eily gets enough milk products daily in the form of cheese and yogurt that she doesn't drink much of the milk since she doesn't care for the taste. I'm not going to flavor the darn stuff and get her hooked on extra sugar in her diet at this age either.
Eily's dental insurance will be kicking in this February so she'll be going to see a dentist hopefully that month. She already gets her teeth brushed and flossed daily. We don't put her to bed with a bottle and after a bottle she gets water. If she is due to go down to sleep she gets her mouth cleaned.
As for the nipple bottle issue. It takes her about 3-7 minutes to finish 6 oz of formula. I don't see how 4 bottles, tops, a day is going to mess with her mouth! It isn't like she sucks her thumb or sucks on a pacifier which would do more damage.
