18 month check up

She got her polio and Dtap shots. She answered an assessment of questions looking for what I think is either autism or any form of delay (does she smile when you smile, does she know her name, is she overly sensitive to loud noise, etc). No ear infection even tho she sticks her fingers in her ears all the time. Breathing sounded good. Did seem to have a yeast rash forming on the diaper line, and her sensitive skin requires some 2.5 hydro cortisone cream. He also said to get her a potty seat to sit on while we go potty just so she gets used to the idea.

He asked if she said 15-20 words. She says 1, "mama." Speech therapy eval is Feb 1 and he's very, very interested in it. She communicates through grunting and pointing. She used to use sign language but now she just walks over to what she wants.

She's in the 3rd percentile for weight at 17 lbs 11 ozs and 10th percentile for height at 30.5 inches.

Since she's been choking lately (3 times in one week) on food she eats normally (apples, goldfish crackers) he ordered a swallow study. Great, just what I need, another reason to go to CHoA.

I was really hoping we were getting away from this nonsense but now its Speech Eval Feb 1, GI Feb 14 and swallow study who knows when.
