Perfect Boy?

According to Ian's pediatrician, yes.

Ian had his 9 month doctor’s appointment today. (Yes, he’s almost 10 months…but we had to cancel 3 weeks ago due to his surgery)

He weighs 22 lbs 3 oz and is 28 ¾ in. tall. (20 lbs 4 oz, 27in at 6 months)

His head was 45 ½ cm, it was 45 last time.

He is now in the 75th percentile for height and weight. (at 2, 4, and 6 months he was in the 95th for weight and 90th for height)

The doctor is pleased with his growth, said he seemed “perfect.” Most important to us today, was that his ears are CLEAR! He has 3 teeth now and the 4th looks like it is coming very soon. He is developmentally ahead of “average” and is doing very well.

We had the go-ahead to start table foods…Roger and I just kinda chuckled to ourselves when the doctor said this. Ian has been eating table foods for awhile, he doesn’t want any foods that he can’t pick up and put in his own mouth anyway! We got props for still breastfeeding and are “allowed” to turn his car seat around on his 1st birthday. The doctor also wants him off of a bottle by 15 months, but Ian doesn’t have very many bottles anyway, so we’re well on our way for that!

Hope all is well with you!
