Today was our doctor day---the first “official” doctor visit since our visit back in January. In the past 3 months, Karina has gained a little over a pound and a half, and has grown about 1 1/4 inches. She’s still just barely on the charts for height and not on the chart at all for weight, but she’s making steady improvement. YAY!
We did have to have 3 shots today, but no more until October. The doctor was very positive, and said that she didn’t see anything health-wise that we need to be worried about.
We know that K is behind where she should be in her verbal skills (she says about 10-12 words: up, dada, belbo (Elmo), bye bye, ah-low (hello!), uh-oh, ball, mama, Jack, kitty (sort-of), and Thu-san (Susan).) But the kid has only been here 3 months—and she’s only heard English for a little over 3 months. She UNDERSTANDS a whole lot of English, so the speaking part should be coming soon. She’s also behind on her gross motor skills, but her fine motor skills and her social skills are very good for her age.
