Doctor Doctor….

We took Ella to the Doctor’s office for her one year check up.

Highs and Lows.

High:
She is pretty darn healthy.

Low:
She is one point into the “Anemic” area.

High: she met all but one of her developmental markers.

Low:
The one she didnt meet is her verbal.

But.

Mid:
We think our doctor is on crack and that she is just fine and it is a range and how dare you judge my baby who obviously understand so many complex concepts so shut up already.

Ahem.

High:
No lead!

Low:
We had to practically strong arm them into doing her blood work. See… there are tests that are required if you are on Medi-Care. If you aren’t on Medi-Care because you have insurance, those tests aren’t required by the state. So, to get them you have to throw a hissy fit.

Shining Moment of Pure Awesome dad:
Matthew making the tech start over in terms of doing Ella’s finger prick because she was not following safety / hygiene regulations. She got huffy but Concerned (and Correct) Dad will win you every time.

He then called in an official complaint to the CA Medical Board.

Also, we are looking for a new pediatrician.

Ella is one years old. She weighs 24.7 pounds and is 28 inches long.

And I love every square inch.
