9 Month Dr. Visit

Carter had his 9 month Dr.’s appointment yesterday. He weighs almost 22 pounds and is well over 30 inches long. Thus, he is still in the 97th percentile for height and 70th for weight. The Dr. called him the “big kid in class.” Yup. That’s Carter – the big kid in class.

Other things we learned:
1.) We have to start to wean Carter off bottles – and start to use sippy cups more.
2.) Carter is still testing us when he whines at night. He is fine and plenty old enough to sleep through the night without waking up and needing us. He just wants us to rush in and rock him…and he may be secretly hoping that when we rush in and see him ... we realize just how much we really wanted to play with blocks and cars…so we’ll get them out of the toy basket and play play play all night long.
3.) He is close to walking
4.) He is close to clapping and waving

And finally #5.) Scheduling a Dr.’s appointment at naptime is one of the dumbest mistakes a parent can make.
