Jilliana was great at the Dr. and only cried a little when she got her immunizations. The good news is that the standard of giving all new immunizations to children adopted from China has changed. Before we repeated all immunizations not knowing if they were really given or if they had been stored properly. But, the Dr.'s have found out that if the child comes with a detailed immunization record, then the immunizations do not need repeated. Also, when we adopted Lily last year, the law stated that she had to get re-immunized while in China. So she received 7 shots before leaving China. Jilliana only had to have the tb test before leaving. We gave her two of the shots that she had not had and will follow up at our Pediatrician for the one we did not get. Also, we will need to get blood work and the urine and stool samples done.
Jilliana was weighed and measured. She is in the 10 percent range for height and the 5 percent for weight. This is much better than our other children have been. She weighs 27 pounds and she is 36 1/8 inch tall.
We only went to lunch and on two rides as it was very busy due to Spring Break. I guess you can tell the new tune that Jilliana cannot quit singing.
Her first beignet in New Orleans Square, I should have got a picture. It was shaped like Mickey!
Some of Jilliana's new words:
Jilliana (She refers to herself as both Ji Hong and Jilliana) We love the way she says her name.
