Nathan - Nine month well-baby check up

Today was Nathan's nine month check up! YIKES! Do you know what that means??? His next check up will be his ONE YEAR! I'm so not ready for that one, but anywho...

The good news is he's very healthy and happy! The bad news (if you can call it "bad"), he had to get three shots that he wasn't able to get back at his six month appt. since he was sick. He was a trooper though! He also has thrush (not fun, but not uncommon) - it is treated with medicine that is administered four times a day for fourteen days. Good times! :-)

At first, Dr. Striegel was a little concerned with his height and weight, but then she said, "Wait a minute... let me look something up..." and pulled up Sean's stats. She turned back around and said, "Never mind - we're good!" She forgot that we make little babies!!! She said that he will probably be considered to have short stature as well, but that wasn't surprising! Plus, at least now I don't have to worry about Nathan being so much bigger than his "big" brother and kicking his you-know-what!

My sweet little guy weighs 16 lbs., 10 oz (2nd percentile) and is 27 1/8 inches (11th percentile). He may be little, but he's just a sweet as can be! He's crawling all over the place, loving any food he can feed himself (he's SO over baby food), babbles ALL the time and is just about as cute as they come!

I know I say it all the time, but we have the cutest boys in the world!!!
