18 Months

Last Tuesday Esme turned months.  I didn't make her a present or even do a photoshoot.  Oops.  We just sang to her at 7:43 and had cake.  Eli decided that she would like brown cake with pink frosting.  She only wanted to eat the cream cheese frosting and feed us the cake.

At her check-up we found out she's only 17 pounds and that the doctor wants her to get some tests, BLOOD TESTS and a sweat test for cystic fibrosis, done and to see an endocrinologist.  If everything is fine, then she will accept that she's just small.  She doesn't need her to be on the same growth curve as other kids, she just wants her line, much below theirs, to go up at the same rate.  I think she has her  own growth rate.  Since she was 6 months old, she's gained exactly one pound every three months.

18 months also meant that today was her first day in nursery at church.  Of course I got teary, of course she did fine, and of course I took pictures when I went to pick her up.

Happy 18 months to Esme! She's so adorable. I'm glad your doctor is so proactive about making sure that Esme is in top condition! It's so much better just to be sure that everything's fine so that she can be as healthy as possible. I'll be praying for you guys!

It's hard to believe that Esme is 18 months old already! She is such a cute girl! I'm glad she did well in nursery...sounds like she's pretty independent. I like the picture of her feeding the doll.
