Since the sign confirmed that we were in a safe zone, we entered the office.
Zoe's check up revealed a few surprises. Apparently, Zoe has lost some ground on her weight gain. She's dropped from the 10th percentile to the 4th percentile. Her pediatrician's take, "she's still got the cheeks." Apparently, if she's got 'the cheeks' no one cares what percentile she's in. Emerson never made the growth chart in weight either, so it runs in the family.
Next, Zoe's pediatrician checked inside her ears and mouth. I figured his "has she been fussy" question pointed to an ear infection. Wrong. Instead, he shared (with the non-observant mommy) that Zoe was getting all FOUR of her molars at once. What? Emerson just got her fourth molar a month ago...
The final surprise of the appointment was my favorite. Dr. Magalnick placed his stethescope to Zoe's chest - listening to her heart and lungs. He turned to me, smiled and said, "I hear nothing but normal inside her little chest." This struck me as odd. I retorted and said, "Normal - as in her heartbeat sounds like a everyone else's?" For some reason, I assumed that if any trained ear listened to her heart they would be able to notice that it was
So, even though she's small, she's healthy - and fiesty!!! This little girl is keeping us on our toes. She's non-stop and full of energy. Whoever said that having half a heart would slow you down hasn't met Miss Zoe Madison Lihn!
