Michael’s 9 month check up

Michael had his 9 month check up today. The doc said he looks great, and not to worry about him not crawling. It is the norm now for babies not to crawl because of baby’s sleeping on their back to prevent SIDS. She thought it was odd that he has a bad reaction to carrots (BAD constipation) but told us just not to feed him carrots and he will most likely grow out of it. The biggest news we got from her was that Baby Sign Language (BSL) has no effect on speech delay! So starting tomorrow morning, we are signing 🙂

If you have any questions about BSL check out signingbaby.com It is a pretty good website that is easy to navigate.

Michael’s Stats:

Height~ 28 in (45%)
Weight~ 20 1/4 lbs (75%)
Head Cir.~ 47 cm (90%)

They also took blood to check hemoglobin. They will call with results.

Other than that, not much to report. The nurse got a kick out of Michael’s scrunched up nose face he gave her in response to her cold stethoscope. (Thanks Beth for teaching him that) And of course everyone loved his hair!

***I will blog about Easter later once we get some pics up. For now you can just imagine the welts on Tim’s legs from paint-balling!
