Skinny Minny.

Today was Pea's 9 month doctor visit and she did as good as she always does. Our Pediatrician is awesome and Olivia likes her as much as we do! Here are the bug's 9 month stats:
Weight: 17 lbs (10-15% percentile) The doctor is super happy with her weight although the number seems small she assures us it's great. Everyone loves fat babies except her I guess!
Height: Around 29.5 inches (95th percentile) She's a pretty tall baby girl. I am 5'8" and Todd is above average, too.
Mobility: High. Olivia crawls at the speed of light and is such an explorer. She got the daredevil bone from her daddy and has no fear! She is still not walking but everyone predicts she will be an early walker since she is so limber and eager to get around.
Eats: Olivia has about four 6 oz. bottles of formula/breastmilk a day + lots of organic veggies and fruits. She loves sweet potatoes and avocados and her nightly oatmeal with banana dinner. We are doing some table foods too, but that totally depends on what we are eating! She has a major appetite but only knows healthy foods and loves them. I think we're on the right track.
Clothes: She wears 9-12 month size, though the waist of all her pants are loose and the leg/arms are always short.
Vaccines: Very selective/delayed.
Car seat: Still rear-facing, and will be for a long time! I am glad she is light because we can rear-face in her seat until she is 35lbs.! She will be about 3+ by then probably. If she suddenly chunks up, we will just replace her seat for another that will rear-face with a higher weight limit. This is why.

my baby is lean too. my doc says that big babies means big people. and that made me feel better; i felt like everyone and their mom was telling me how skinny my son was. i'm sorry if THEIR babies are FAT.

So exciting that she is 9 months now! I really noticed a big change happen around that time - lot's of personality starts to show and they really become their own little lady! I am curious about the height restrictions for your seat rear facing. Olivia is tall like Adelaide - and will reach the height limit WAY before they ever come close to the weight limit. Ours only goes to 37" and she is already 32"!! I wonder how long it will take her to get 5 more inches!?!?!
