Our Big Girl

BabyCakes FINALLY had her One-year well check today.
She weighs over 24 pounds and is 31.5 inches long.
That's off the charts in length and the 85th percentile for weight.

She's a strong, healthy, thriving child.

According to the World Health Organization in 2008, "Globally, more than one third of child deaths are attributed to undernutrition."

At the end of her appointment, BabyCakes had some immunizations that brought tears to her eyes.
At least she wasn't crying over a painfully empty stomach or a diseased little body.

Yes, we are surely blessed here in the green house.
