Yesterday, I took Jillian for her 18 month check-up! It’s hard to believe our baby girl will be 18 months old next week!
She stayed entertained in the waiting room by looking through pictures on my iPhone!
Jillian had a great appointment! She is growing well physically and on track developmentally!
Her stats for this appointment:
Weight: 24lbs-50th percentile
Height: 31 inches-50th percentile
Head circumference: 18.5 inches- 75the percentile
I talked to the doctor yesterday (who happens to be a sweet friend of mine) and told her about some symptoms we have been noticing with Jillian over the last few months. Our doctor, along with Josh and I, thought it would be best to have Jillian’s heart tested mainly for peace of mind, but also to rule out any heart issues. We were referred to the Centers for Children in our area. This clinic is a regional clinic that has physicians that travel from Arkansas Children’s Hospital weekly to see patients. We were told we should get an appointment with the clinic by the end of the month. They called this morning to let us know that they could actually fit us into their schedule today! We went in this afternoon for an echocardiogram.
Here is our brave girl during the test. It lasted about 45 minutes.
The images from the test were immediately sent to a cardiologist at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and we should know the results of the test tomorrow or Monday. We feel confident that everything looked normal and that our girl is perfectly healthy.
We are thankful for a great check-up yesterday and thankful for our sweet little girl that we love so much!
