ok so Quinn is just the smartest girl in the world! Do you SEE what she can do now?!?!? Seriously, she is so incredible to me. Such a proud MAMA!

Crazy Busy Weekend!

Dan, Quinn and I had such a fun, but busy weekend.

We went to PopPop's 80th birthday party.

Then we all went and visited our Grandma and Grandpa O. They were up visiting from Texas!

Next, we had a sleep over with Julia, Violet and Aden!

The threat of therapy? nah, I think that it just finally "clicked" in her head. My little girl can stand! WOO HOO! Seriously, this has been such a battle with me holding her up and Dan holding her legs down for soooooooo long. But look, she gets it now. So so so so sooo proud.

12 Month Check Up!

Quinn just had her 12 month check up. She got three vaccines and is still sort of cranky from it. I got a flu shot too. yippy. Quinn is now 20lb and 5 oz! What a big girl. She is 28.5 inches long.

Quinn's Head Circumference-for-age is in the 92%. This is such a large jump from her last visit when it was only in the 76%. So we need to go back in next month just to check up on it. I just think she has a big head but it better to be safe than sorry!
Quinn's length-for-age is in the 26% which is right on from last month. She is growning accordingly.

Quinn's Weight-for-length is in the 60% which is up from her ten month check up of 55%. We are happy about this one. We all still remember the 4lb little girl so I am fine if she is a little tubby right now. :)

Lastly, Quinn's weight for age is in the 40% which is up from what looks like the 30% at her ten month check up.

Quinn also now has to see the Dermatologist. She has Seborrheic Dermatitis on her scalp. It pretty much looks like orangish dandruff. I thought that I wasn't getting her shampoo out well enough and I would scrub and scrub her poor little head. I also thought that it was cradle cap. but no.. So now she has to use Selsun Blue. I am nervous about this because it will REALLY sting her eyes if any gets in there. :(

On a sad note, Quinn now has to start seeing a physical/occupational therapist. She still won't put any pressure on her legs (except on her tippy toes when in the bouncer) We have had all of her body X-rayed and Ultrasound-ed (if that's a word) and there isn't anything wrong so our Dr just thinks that she is choosing not to. Dan and I try to get her to stand but with no avail. So now we are going to have a therapist come out and help our little angel. The program is called Infants and Toddlers. Here is some info on it:

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), authorized in 1975 and reauthorized most recently in 1997, supports efforts to provide coordinated service delivery systems for children with disabilities from birth through age 5. Children are best served within the context of their families. Services for infants and toddlers are designed to identify and treat a problem or delay as early as possible.

On an exciting note, Quinn sat up completely on her own for the FIRST time the other night. Also, she drank from a sippy cup for the FIRST time last night. She usually just chews on the sippys or plays with them. I am VERY proud of her!!!!!
