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.
