9 Month Check Up!

Today was Iain's 9 month Wellness Visit.

The Dr. is really happy with his improvements in development.  He's sitting up on his own (almost getting into the sitting position on his own) and doing "Baby Yoga" as his Dr. put it.  He's very busy, active and like to support himself on one leg and two arms! :)

The only concern was his weight.  He weighed 17 lbs. 6 oz. which is in the 6%.  I've read that heart baby's can be underweight, so it's something I've been noticing lately.  So, the plan to to up his solids (because he has never been able to eat more than 6 oz. of formula at a time) and see what happens in the next 3 months.  Typically, around 1 years old is when Drs. see a decline in weight gain.  So, we'll need to watch, as he'll likely lose weight as we taper off formula and he starts walking.

He is a good eater, so we'll try to pack on some pounds.

He is long (as people often comment on!) at almost 29" he is in the 66% and he's got the big head (found in both Teaman and Clark families!)  at 19.02" he's in the 99%.

He is saying MAMAMAMA and DADADADA , but does not realize he's saying Mama and Dada. :)

He keeps us busy, is till a big smiler and loves people!

Here's a few pics from last week.
