Little man had his 9 month check-up today….

We took Little E to the doctor today for his 9 month check-up.  They had to take blood from his toe to for a lead test (one of those things his pediatrician does at this age) which he did not like at all.  At least he didn’t get any shots on top of that today!

He’s doing everything he is supposed to be doing now and he is doing great.  We have to start him on a diet – no, not really but he weighs 25 pounds and is 29 inches long.  His pediatrician told us he is as big as an average 15 month old is supposed to be!  With his length he is proportionate though.  We are going to try to cut out one of his bottles throughout the day.  He usually has five 6 ounce bottles and she wants him to only have about 24 ounces of formula a day.
That’s not really a big deal since we are trying to get him to drink from a sippy cup and giving him food that he can pick up to eat himself.  He’s just a big happy boy!

    He is so cute!! Those appointments are always stressful for us. I hate the vaccinations. Our son has had 2 bad reactions to the vaccines. I'm glad your little one is such a good eater!

    He is PRECIOUS!! My 14 month old has always been on the higher percentiles for things, and I think it won't be long before he catches up with his big brother (20 months older). I think he's about the same weight as your son now. I always say a big baby is a healthy baby!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a cutie! But wow, definitely a big guy. My little one just went to her 18 month checkup and weighed 26 pounds. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My older daughter was always big for her age when she was a baby (but she was born almost 10 1/2 pounds, so it was hard for her not to be pretty darn chunky) but she grew into it. If Little E is happy, who the heck cares? There's just more of him to love!

    Thanks for joining in Friendly Friday – have a great weekend!
