The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

The 19 Month 18 Month Checkup


It was very hard getting Keira scheduled for her 18 month checkup, so we had to settle for the 18 month checkup a few days ago...even though she is 19 months old now. Hey...at least it wasn't an 18 month checkup when she is 4 years old, so I shouldn't complain, right? :) She's doing great although she hasn't really gained any weight since her last check up at 15 months.

Here are her stats:
Height 33 inches

Weight 21 pounds 8 oz.

Head Circ. 17 3/4 inches


She is in the 75% for her height, but only about 5-10% for weight and 10-25% for head circ.
I guess that means that she's going to be tall and skinny-very UNLIKE her mommy :).


I am a little concerned with the weight thing, but the Dr. said not to worry since she obviously is not malnourished. It's just part of her genetic makeup to be a small framed little girl. She's doing great and is pretty much right on track with her development! She says about 10-20 words, she can throw a ball, she can point to body parts and name them, she can stack anywhere from 6-9 blocks, she can go up and down stairs. She really is doing fantastically. She did end up getting 4 shots, but stickers apparently make things all better :)


I didn't get any pictures of her at the Dr's office, but here is a picture of her that I may have posted before. It's an older picture that I just LOVE of her being a ham and copying me when I sleep and snore. She's so funny!

We are so glad that Keira is doing well. She seems to be one happy baby. Keira is definitely blessed for having both you and Dan as parents. Keep up the great work!
