Measurements and shots? I'm 9 months old!


Ben went to the doctor this morning for his 9 month checkup. He weighs 15 pounds and 15 oz. (1 percentile) and is 27 inches long (15 percentile). I really thought he would weigh more, but he is growing and she said he looks great. He received the last Hepetitis shot. (not sure if that is spelled correctly, but use your phonics) He didn't like the shot at all and they also pricked his big toe to test his iron, which was good. She said we could start giving him more foods, such as some chicken, pancakes, waffles, etc. I thought "WOW"! Then she realized he was a preemie so she told us to wait another month or so. I think that was it, but if I remember anything else I will let you know. Jake was so much bigger than Ben at this age, but I guess they are all different and Jake wasn' t a preemie.

He is precious! Cade was 5 pounds when we was born. He weighed 17.1 lbs at his year check up and was 29and 1/2 inches long. He's also at the bottom of the chart for weight. They'll catch up!!!
