9 Month Well Baby

Yesterday was baby Harp’s 9 month well baby appointment.

I always dread his appointments because I know he’s going to get shots and I just hate to do that to him. So, a few days before the dreaded appointment I started thinking maybe he wouldn’t have to get any this time. After three days of telling myself that, I was damn near convinced of it when we got to the doctors office yesterday! I was so convinced that I was almost surprised when his doctor told me he had to get two shots…but, I wasn’t as anxious about his appointment and I think I’ll just go ahead and start convincing myself that there won’t be any shots necessary next time.

His stats are:

  • 22 pounds, 1 ounce
  • 29 inches long
  • 47 1/2 head circumference

That means he’s about 3 1/2 pounds heavier than at 6 months, about an inch taller and his heads grown and inch and a half! The doctor assured me that he’s growing perfectly fine and turning out to be another little cutie.

But I already knew that.
