So at Malka's 18 month appointment today, we learned that she is perfectly healthy.
34 inches tall
48cm head circumference.
She is no longer making her own curve, and is following the national standards for health.
She can kick the ball, say about 13 words, (and some in Hebrew, but we aren't sure...) She still signs, but her words are now replacing her signs.
She LOVES LOVES LOVES any and ALL fruit - including prunes and dates. She is not a fan of veggies, but doesn't mind if they are mixed in her mac and cheese or mashed potatoes. She LOVES Mexican food. She loves smoothies, and yogurt. She is also a big fan of steel-cut oatmeal, and the Shabbes wine...
She runs like many toddlers, "head first," and we are always afraid that she will crash into the sidewalk, but we stay half an arm's length away, just in case, but still giving her "room to run."
She is the joy of our lives, but man does she wear us out.
