Madelyn's One Year Check Up

Madelyn had her one year check up on Monday. She was 367 days was the day after her birthday, but it is Leap Year, so she was actually a year and one day on her "BIRTH"day! (Thanks Mom-in-law for pointing that out). I know she is a little peanut, but I found out she isn't even in the fifth percentile! At age one, she is 16 pounds 6 ounces...and that is with a diaper on. She is a little one! She is 27 inches long, so she is a shortie pie. The Doctor is a little concerned, so he said to make sure we keep her 15 month check up. We just want to make sure she is growing. She did have "flu-like" issues twice this year, so I am sure she lost weight both times. She was a pretty sick little girl. You can read about it here, here, and here!
Currently (I pray she stays healthy) she is not sick. I pray that she has a healthy bubble around her.

Oh my goodness she is so TINY! I hate it when people compare, but I couldn't help but to think that Anna was that weight at like five months lol and 27 1/2 in. at 6 months. But she's always been tall and chubby. People called her the Michelin baby hehehehehe.
She is beautiful! I love her hair and her white skin and pink cheeks! :D So cute! I love ponies! Can't wait for ponies! hehehe! :D
I'll pray for her, too. I'll pray she has a growth spurt and puts on a couple of inches and pounds so the doctor doesn't worry about her and so that she is growing ok!

She is a little peanut. Here I thought Katie was little. Katie was 9 lbs at birth and 18 lbs 8 ounces at her 1 yr (28 3/4" long). Her doctor kept worrying about her weight too and even check her iron level. I just wish doctors would understand that not every child is the same instead of making us parents worry.
