Yesterday afternoon we had Jaelynn's 9 month check up and pre-op appointment. I am happy to report that all is well!! She weighed in at a hefty 19.4 pounds and is 28 inches long. Yikes!! 2 more inches before she out grows the bucket seat!! She is still in the 50th percentile but has followed her growth curve wonderfully. She got the all clear to have her tubes done Friday and we are ready! We have 2 more teeth working their way through...that would explain the runny nose and crankiness! Dr. Amy told me that whenever we wanted to ditch the bottle to go ahead. Last night we started taking the steps to do that and Jaelynn didn't mind one bit.
I had been concerned because Peanut Pie isn't crawling or scooting that much yet. I'm not so worried anymore! Dr. Amy said that she could be a little behind because of being sick so much this winter and she was just under 3 weeks early. If she doesn't start getting more mobile after the tubes we are going to have an Early Assessor come and observe her to see if she needs PT....but I don't think we will need that.
I also got some really good information on some vaccinations that are coming up and extended rear facing. Kevin and I decided that we are for sure going to do extended rear facing with Jaelynn. In Iowa you can front face your child after 20 pounds and 1 year. We have decided to get a car seat that will allow us to rear face until Jaelynn is 35 pounds. We have also considered switching her to front facing around 18 months but at this time I just don't feel that she is ready.
I also got some work done on the scrapbook last night. Two full pages and I have layout ideas for another 4. I just need to print some pictures off now! So for today I'll leave you with this....little miss on her 9 month birthday showing off her two teeth!!
