Height: 34.5" (67th percentile)

How does she still not weigh 25 lbs?
The best part of the appointment was that we got a copy of her developmental pediatrician's report. Here is my favorite snippet:
"IMPRESSION: The patient was a delightful and engaging 23-month-old toddle with... good cognitive and language development and is doing a number of tasks that are above her chronologic age. She has a number of skills ranging from 2 to 2-1/2 years of age. The patient is receiving appropriate early intervention services and is attending a typical daycare because she has such good language and good pretend play skills."
Last year when Allie was in the height of her seizures, I got in a fight with the pharmacy manager at her pediatrician's office. This woman was so rude that I ended up leaving in tears and filing a formal complaint against her. I went to pick up Allie's Trileptal refill today and I had to talk to this woman. She asked if I remembered her and I tried to just blow it off. She then proceeded to remind me of our encounter by describing it like this: "Remember, you wanted the non-generic medicine and we wouldn't give it to you. You went all (*cue arm waving like a wind puppet in front of an electronics store*) as if the world was going to end." I stared blankly at her and said "My daughter was having seizures and I couldn't get the right medication from her pharmacy for her. It did feel like the world was ending." I really dislike her.
