Abigail's 9 Month Stats
Weight: 19lbs 11 oz (65%)
Height: 28 inches (63%)
Head: 45 1/2 cm (88%)
We had both Abigail's 9 month well check up and Jackson's 3 year old check up at the same time this morning. I definitely could not have done it without Charlie going with me. I guess this will happen once and a while since they are exactly 2 years and 3 months apart in age. They only ended up giving Abigail one shot and taking her blood. Overall, it went well, but we did end up mainly discussing Jackson.
She is doing what she is suppose to be doing motor skills and daily activities. They say a baby can start to use "mama" or "dada" appropriately at this age. She does say "hey, mama, and dada," but I do not think she is using it appropriately yet. She has great tongue movement and is always lifting it high, but it looks like she might have a connecting frenulum (but we will have to see) at the top like Jackson, but that should not affect speech much.
She is a lot of fun and wants to eat whatever Jackson is eating, so she is eating a lot of people food now such as cereal bars, Cheerios, crackers, grill cheese, chicken, etc. She also has 1 jar of fruit and 1 jar of veggies a day. Jackson was also right at 20 pounds at his 9 month check up. The are similar in so many ways. Recently, she has been sleeping from 9 pm to 9 am and then only taking one big nap when Jackson naps from 1:30-4 pm. Her sleeping has really done wonders for our family!
