Nine Month Well-Check

Friday I took Keira to Dr. L for her 9 month well check. She seemed to be fine to me. She hasn't been eating as well and has been waking up before her normal time, but I contributed that to her being congested and coughing still. We got there and she was weighed and measured:

Weight: 16 pounds 7 ounces (10-25% and down one ounce from last week's RSV check)
Height: 27 inches (25-50%)
Head: 16 3/4 inches (10%)

Everything is still about the same percentile as her 6 month. She is just going to be petite and there is nothing wrong with that!

We went back to the room and spoke with Dr. L and told her the latest things she can do including the reduced eating and sleeping. So she looked in her ears. First one, yep infected. Second one, yep infected. Lovely! But with all the congestion in her nose and throat, it has to go somewhere! So she is on amoxicilin and tylenol now. Hopefully it does the trick and she is eating and sleeping better by Sunday. If not we will try another antibiotic. She slept well last night and had a great breakfast, we'll see about lunch!

Other than the ears she looks great! We will go back to Dr. L for her one year in May and she will get her one year vaccinations. It was nice not having to deal with that this time! :)

Hope you are all having a great weekend! We are planning on enjoying some Superbowl commercials tomorrow and laughing at Boy when he yells at the game. He really likes the Colts (and Peyton Manning... ha!). :)
