Today Alice went for her 18-month vaccinations. Once again, our nurse was Karen – she’s very friendly, and does a great job with our little girl. Karen has only seen one other baby as often as Alice. Alice was a really good girl. She’s old enough that she knew what was coming, and started to cry before the first needle. There was one needle for each shoulder. Alice recovered quickly though, and soon was walking around and looking at everything in the room. Alice now weighs 25lb 10oz and is 31 3/4 inches tall. Her weight is around the 75th percentile; height is around 50th percentile. As with all little children, accurate height measurements are pretty difficult. Having said that, 50th percentile is pretty good for a Murray.
