10 Month Appointment

We finally had our 9 month well baby visit (albeit a month over due). After the sickness had hit her and being weighed with her clothes on, I was curious what her real weight would be.

With new electronic medical records, after an appointment, we get a summery of all that went on such as shots given and stats. This means more accurate growth chart percentiles. it appears we have a peanut for a daughter. In weight: 17.6 lbs. 13th %, Height 28.25 54th % and head was 5th %. Reasons for this might be from her being sick, as we did see a slight decrease in her appetite. Yet, since we seem to have such an active baby, I think she is burning more calories. Height and weight have been 50 to 75 percentile since the beginning, and even I was surprised at her weight.

Advice given was to decrease the fruits and veggies and increase the cereal. We have a follow up appointment in a month to check her weight. There wasn't too much concern on her head, as long as they see some sort of growth going on. So far, we are still in size 2 diapers and somewhere between size 2/3 shoes. Makes for many trips where we discover she is lacking one. Most pajamas are 6-9, while most of her clothes are 12 mo due to needing length. If it weren't for the cloth diaper bulk, dropping our pants would be the norm.

But on a brighter note, we had a shot with NO tears!
