18 month check up

Today Chad and I took Olivia to her 18 month appointment. All went well, she is healthy and developing right where she should be. She weighed in at 24 1/2 lbs and was 33 1/2 inches long. That put her in the 50th percentile for weight and 90th for height. She was such a good girl during the appointment and allowed them to poke and look with no rejections. Then came the shots. ALL four of them! She only cried for about 30 seconds but she was and is still mad about it. In the car she wouldn't even look at us. And now that she is home she is sitting on the sofa with no interaction with me...other then looking at me every few minutes and pointing to her leg saying "booboo". It is sad but her expressions are cracking me up.

** On a side note Olivia has started asking to go to the potty. It started last week. If someone was in the bathroom she would come in and want to take her diaper off and then sit on the potty. She would not take no for an answer so we did a lot of sitting in the bathroom. Then on Sunday morning she asked to go "poopoo" (which she calls everything). So we went to go sit on the potty and she actually peed in the toilet! Ever since then she will just look at me at any time, try to pull down her pants and say poopoo. But 90% of the time it is while she is currently going to the bathroom in her diaper. At the doctors office today she asked to go and went in the potty! So proud of her but so not ready for potty training my 18 month old!
