She is back on the charts...

Sophie had her 1 year checkup with the pediatrician last week. She weighs exactly 25 pounds and is 31.5 inches long which puts her at 95th percentile on weight and 90th percentile on height. At her 9 month checkup, she was off the charts on weight. Below are some before and after pictures of when she was on ACTH. She has definitely grown into all that weight she gained during ACTH. Everything else during her checkup looked fine. We are holding off on immunizations until she is feeling better. She has a stuffy nose right now which is causing her seizures to be worse.

Day 5 on ACTH (May 15, 2006 - 7 months old)

Day 42 on ACTH (June 21, 2006 - 8 months old)
Those cheeks are getting chubby.

Day 57 on ACTH (July 6, 2006 - almost 9 months old)
Check out those legs!

Day 71 on ACTH (July 20, 2006 - 9 months old)
It was hard trying to wash under all those chins.

67 days post ACTH (Sept 26, 2006 - 11.5 months old)

94 days post ACTH (today - 1 yr old)
Down to only 1 chin ;)

What a journey your first year has been, Sophie!! And no matter what size your cheeks were, every time I saw you there was always a big smile on your face. Hope all your new birthday things are giving you a few more things to smile about.

I love you,
