One thing that was interesting at Sienna’s 18-month check-up was that the doctor asked if she could stand, bend over and pick something up, and then straighten back up. I told her that Sienna was doing that before she started walking. The doctor was surprised and said that usually the child walks before doing that.I don’t think it looks like it in this picture, but she’s in the 10th percentile for body weight (meaning that 90% of girls her age weigh more than she does). We’re not concerned since she isn’t at the 5th percentile anymore, and she is steadily growing. She around the 50th percentile for height.
Since Sienna began walking she and Ethan are playing more together. It has been really fun to see this change and wonderful during times like this week when Gary is out of the country on a teaching trip.
