I’m nearly a month late on this post but Cameron is 15 months now.This was a month that came with a pediatrician visit and vaccinations. For the first time ever, we saw anxiety upon entering the room at the pediatrician’s office. Our pedi is really nice and Cameron does well overall with him, but she did NOT want to be placed on the exam table. She received 3 different vaccinations: Dtap, HepA & Hib. I reckon our next visit in 3 months will be coupled with even more anxiety as she was not happy after those shots. She received a clean bill of health. She’s meeting all of her developmental milestones. Her stats are:
Weight: 21 lbs 2 oz (25th percentile)
Length: 31 inches (75th percentile)
Head: don’t know the exact measurement but it’s 50th percentile
Let’s see, what’s changed this month. Well Brian had a birthday. A 30th one at that. We are so thankful for another year with him and pray for many many many more. We had a great time celebrating with family. Brian chose to have sushi for his birthday dinner. This last month has proved to be a bit more difficult than usual for going out to eat and bringing Cameron with us. While at the sushi restaurant on this particular night, it felt like the whole place was silent except for our fussy girl who did NOT want to eat and did NOT want to sit in her chair. It ended up being rushed so we could get out of there before we got any more funny looks from people. We have tried a few restaurants since then and had similar behavior so we’ve decided everywhere we go out to eat from now on will be “kid friendly” aka loud. She’s still a bit young to reason with and doesn’t understand the concept behind restaurants yet.
Cameron has a few new words this month: poo poo, blueberry (sounds like behbeh), night night, blankie
New signs: daddy, cat, frog, fish
Favorite game: “catch me if you can” especially when played with daddy.
Teeth update: 10 teeth now! She got two upper molars
A new favorite thing for her, it’s actually kind of like an obsession, is pointing out anytime she sees poo poo or anything that resembles it. With having a new puppy around, we have occasional house training mishaps. Cameron is usually the first to spot them and will call out for mom or dad pointing and saying “poo poo poo poo” until it is cleaned up. She even says it when we are outside and she spots it. She also says it every time her diaper is changed, regardless of it’s contents. We’re hoping this new “awareness” is the first step in the right direction towards potty training. We’re not going to rush that, of course, but you have to start somewhere.
I guess one of the reasons I’m so late to blogging this month is that right after her shots, Cameron and Brian got sick. Cameron had a 101-102 fever for 3 days after her shots. Her doctor said 1 out of 20 kids will have this reaction to the Hib vaccine and it will go away. Sure enough, 72 hrs later she was fever free. That is, until she got the cold/flu that Brian had which brought fever and a cough for another few days. She fought it like a champ. You could hardly tell she was sick. The worst I had ever seen her was the second night after her Hib vaccine. She clung to me all day and night, not wanting to get up, eat or play. It was absolutely pitiful.
I snapped this picture on my phone that night. She slept in our bed that whole week because she would wake up crying so much. Thankfully she’s much better now and is back to her usual energetic self.
Here are some recent pictures of her from her 15th month.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
She was in the mood for a hat this day.

I just love sleeping angel pictures.

New BFFs. And introducing Piccomolo. Our Italian Greyhound born 1-14-11. He’s different from my little love, Max, but reminds me of him in many ways. We are very happy to welcome him into our home.
We call him Picco or Piccolo (means little in Italian) for short.
Where did we get his name? One of my favorite gelato places. http://www.piccomolo.com/
