15 month check up - 17 months old

This picture is when she was about 15 months old, so it's relevant to this post :)

Took her to the doctor yesterday, she is 17 months old, so a bit behind on well checks due to a health insurance issue that took about a month to fix, now it's all squared away :)

Height: 32 inches  - 75%
Weight: 23 lbs. 7 oz. - 50 %
Head: 18 7/8cm - 90%

This is from my facebook:

"So after lots of time, I think we've pinpointed that Claire may have a VERY strong aversion to all milk products (don't think she's allergic, b/c no extreme reactions). Therefore, Dairy free peeps, I need your help! 
So grateful that Heavenly Father is looking out for me and her and I was able to have inspiration, mother's intuition, a "thought" whatever you might call it, answer my prayers and search for answers on this girl.
My evidence is 5 dairy free days and she was sleeping 11:30-6:30am uninterrupted!!!! Last night she managed to get Luke's sippy cup FULL of milk and downed at least half of it....the night was terrible with unending wake ups and crying.
Good news: I think I know now how to help her!"

Talked to the Doctor about dairy intolerance, said she was shocked that we found success b/c her symptoms didn't sound like a reason to remove dairy.  

Asked about her curved left foot....said just to watch and wait.  That nothing can be done, only would be put in a brace if it caused her to fall and she couldn't walk b/c it.

Still has a small herniated belly button.  Not to worry til she is 5.  Should go away on it's own.
I've noticed an improvement in her patchy eczema skin since removing dairy.  She still has dry skin but no patches.  Will keep watching this b/c it might have just been a way she was showing us her problem.

So grateful for all that we've learned in the past 2 weeks to help this girl!
