9 Month Pediatrician Appointment

Joseph and I (T.J. had to fly to New York this morning) went to see his pediatrician today. He has a pretty bad cold right now, but we still got his last vaccine from the 6 month appointment.

He's doing great - just following along his own path. Here are his stats:

Height: 28.5" (55%)
Weight: 15lb 9oz (<3%)
Head: 43.8cm (11%)

So he's fallen a bit for head and weight, but stayed the same for height. I just realized today that we still have him on the CDC charts, not the WHO charts. He probably would be holding his own *slightly* better with weight on the WHO. I'll have to try to remember to ask about it next time.

We're going to add in meat, legumes, and dairy to his diet and cut back on the rice and oatmeal. The doc is more concerned that he gets nutrient rich foods vs. fortified calories, which makes me happy. We've decided against the multivitamin that has iron for now - he has some difficulty with pooping now that I don't want to make worse with an iron supplement. So we'll go with fish and meat for now and see how things look at his 12mo appointment.

I can't believe that at our next pediatrician appointment he will be a year old! Insane!
