Avery has had a full body rash all week and we haven't done anything different that may have caused it, so the Dr. ordered a strep test. This is the second time Avery has had a strep test done in her short 18 months of life and like the last time, it came back negative. SO, the doctor said the rash is probably from a virus and it just needs to run its course.... It started on Monday and it's now Thursday and it is still there- hopefully it will go away soon. Thankfully Avery doesn't seem bothered by it. After the strep test, Avery only had to get poked once! Usually she gets 3-4 sticks at her check-ups, so 1 stick was great! Of course, she did not enjoy being pinned down and poked, but she didn't cry long after the stick.

So, she is a tall and skinny little thing. We are finally able to turn her carseat to face forward. They suggest waiting until they are 2 but the dr said that if she can't straighten her legs out then we can go ahead and turn her around. That's been our biggest concern, is that she is just squished back there. It will be nice to turn her around and give her more leg room.
Things I forgot to mention in the last post:
-Avery can blow her nose
-oh! she cut another tooth this last week so that makes 13!
-did I mention she loves to read books????
