18 Months

The Baby had her 18 month checkup and everything is fine. She is officially the tiniest 18month ever or at least in weight she is in the 5th percentile. However, her head is in the 50th percentile - so she does have a normal Asian brain. We were a little worried about her speech development as the Baby still has under 10 words - but our doctor said that it isn't a cause for alarm as she is really good at demonstrating. At this stage, she just didn't want a mute kid.

A few days after this checkup, the Baby ended up getting really sick - she wasn't coughing or anything but she did have a fever of 102 and was extremely lethargic. She was literally awake for about 2 hours. But luckily she got well and was up to no good.

I would also like to point out that this picture was taken by the Wifey. The Baby climbed up there and actually lied down to rest. Crazy kid.

Kid's Menus

I think the majority of professional chefs would agree that kid's menus are absolutely a waste of time and money. Granted they are just children but they undermine the palettes of children. It's the same stuff - overpriced blue box mac and cheese and chicken tenders - sometimes we'll be lucky and there will be a pasta, accompanied with mandarin oranges in syrup straight from the jar.

Although the Baby herself has a simple enough sense of taste; we can't go wrong with steamed rice or pasta, the Baby will usually eat anything we put in front of her. She has eaten sushi (higher quality stuff, not the prepackaged Wal-Mart stuff) and really likes edamame. I just find it sad that a lot of the nicer restaurants have involuntarily dubbed themselves as "not kid friendly". It's not hard to be kid friendly - just have high chairs available. Our child will eat off our plates and if they don't like it, we have some animal crackers just in case.
