15 Months Old, Really?

Abby's 15-month well-baby check today confirmed what we already knew:  She's still a teeny-tiny one.  I was hoping that she would be big enough to flip forward in her car-seat but it looks like it's going to have to wait another month -- she only weighed in at 18 lbs. 13 oz.  Yup.  Third percentile.  Height?  28.5 inches -- Fifth percentile but her head is rather large -- 44.5 cm or Fourteenth percentile!

Then somehow or other they figure out body mass index.  I'm not sure why but are you ready for this?  Forty-sixth percentile!  So we have a little, fluffy girl.

But I've got to bulk her up before we go to Michigan so she can face forward for the 20 hours drive.  Doughnuts sound good.  Ice cream too.  And I know she wouldn't object!
