Today we went for Paige’s 9 month doctors appointment. No shots today, but she did have her first eye exam. She also got her finger pricked for an anemia test and she did not even cry!
She now weighs 20 pounds 8 ounces, is 29 inches tall, and has a 18 inch head circumfrance. That puts her in the 75th percentile for weight and the 90th for height and head. The doctor said that she is going to be a tall girl!
The doctor said she was doing great developmentally. The only thing she is not doing that most babies are is eating more finger foods, but she said some babies continue to eat jarred/strained food until 12 or even 15 months old. Her blood work put her in the normal range on the anemia test. We are not sure when the eye exam results will be done, but she did great on that test also.
So, hopefully we stay healthy and she will not be back to the doctor until she is 12 months old!
