Baby Stats

Ruby had her one year check up yesterday and here are the stats:
  • Weight: 17lbs 15oz (7th percentile)
  • Length: 27.5 in (15th percentile)
  • Head: 17 in (5th percentile)

Oh yes, our baby is muy pequeña! But she's got little fat rolls and is hitting all her marks so ain't nothing to worry about! We figure we are getting our money's worth out of the car seat and all of her clothes.

In addition to being weighed and measured, she also got 4 (!) shots, poor monkey. After a lunch of delicious sushi (she had edamame and tempura sweet potato), we got a tiny little itty bitty nap and then....the fussiness began. We gave her tylenol, but the fussiness evolved into an ear piercing scream with no signs of abating. The cats demanded to be let outside. She was so worked up and we could just tell she didn't feel well. After exhausting all of my ideas, I called my friend Nicole who sagely prescribed motrin and a bath. We bow to your parenting expertise Nicole! This worked like a charm. Once she got in the bath she calmed right down and started splashing around. Soon, there were smiles and coos and after the bath, she crashed out until 5:30 this morning. Phew!
