9 month check-up at 10 months

Ian went to his 9 month check-up Friday. Ian weighed 17.8 pounds and was 28.5 inches long. He's in the 3-5 percentile for weight and 20th for length. Looks like we really will have a little guy. I was a bit worried about his weight, but the doc said we shouldn't worry as long as he's eating and gaining. No troubles with the eating. Our little guy likes to eat. It seems the palate surgery had more impact than we thought. But, all-in-all, he's a healthy little boy.

At 10 months he can: cruise around the room by holding onto furniture, say ma-ma, ba-ba, and da-da when he wants, wave bye-bye, sign milk, make a huge mess, give slobbery kisses, terrorize the dogs, play patty-cake, make the touchdown sign, and turn pages in a book.

way to go 3-5 oercentile....we are right there with you. What percentile was he before the pallet surgery? I think Avie has gained some...but then I thought that last time.

goodness Ian is definetly growing up. Ramsey is not a very big 9 month old and not even a big eater. I just offer and hope for the best. Maybe we'll just have the buff, slender built kids?
