Carter's 9 Month Check-Up

On Friday, Carter went to the pediatrician for his 9 month check-up. The doctor said he is in "stellar" health. Even though Carter is a little slow doing things, the doctor was pleased with his progress since his last visit (yeah - no physical therapy!!!). Since his 6 month appointment, he has learned to sit up independently and put weight on his legs. He showed off for the doctor and stood almost his entire appointment! During the next 3 months, we are going to work on crawling, continue breast-feeding (and supplement with 1/2 formula, 1/2 breast milk bottle if needed), practice with a sippy cup and introduce soft table foods like pasta, couscous, stewed fruits, eggs, rice, etc.

His stats on April 23rd:

Weight: 19 lbs 0 oz (25th percentile)
Height: 28 in (30th percentile)
Head circumference: 43.5 cm (8th percentile)
