Last Saturday, Autumn had her 4 year well visit and she is doing really well overall. I felt bad because I did not think there would be any shots, so when she asked me if she’d have a shot I told her no. Silly me! When we got there we found out she would indeed have TWO shots. Given that she had to be held down for her flu shot, I was NOT looking forward to it. Turns out, she was in a bright little mood with big smiles the entire appointment and she was just excited to get two new band aids out of the shots. Autumn is very much into band aids right now… she loves to have one on each thumb.
Autumn still has a tiny bit of her heart murmor (it will go away as she grows) and we brought up that she will be tested for speech therapy on Valentine’s Day. She is an average sized girl which is wonderful, because she was such a skinny baby (we used to call her string bean!). They also tested her vision and she passed.
Here are her stats:
Height: 40″ (49.96%)
Weight: 34 lb 8 oz (41.68%)
Autumn is really starting to show her independence these days… especially when it comes to deciding what pair of shoes she wants to wear! She loves to give her babies and puppies baths (she got the AG bath tub for Christmas) as you’ll see in the photo above that her teacher sent to me. She also loves to unclothe all her dolls, because she wants them all to be BABIES, of course! Autumn loves to sing all of the songs she learns at school or Sunday school and is really into drawing babies with crayons or creating them out of play dough. She loves to get herself dressed for her ballet/tap dance even though it means Mommy needs to give her 20 long minutes… She loves to eat bananas, Mac & Cheese, spaghetti, Krispy Kreme, Lunchable’s pizzas, Campbell’s Chicken & Stars soup, cherries, ice cream cone’s and raw broccoli/cauliflower. Her favorite restaurant is McDonalds. She wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up and would love for Mommy to buy her a puppy.
