The Nine Month Stats.

Mason had his 9 month well check today.  As I predicted, his new exercise routine has melted some weight off.  Not only is he a little easier on his mama's back, but some of the diapers that were hidden at the bottom of the pile that couldn't snap around his thunder thighs are once again seeing daylight.
He weighs 18 pounds (down from 20.5) which is middle of the line for breastfed babies.
He is 27 inches long and although I don't remember his head circumference, I do remember that he has a big noggin.. like 90th percentile big.
No shots this visit, which was nice, but also made the visit seem kind of pointless.  There were some smile and nod moments when the doctor talked about self soothing and new table foods, things we don't approach the way she preaches.  But, we always like finding out how our little one is growing.  And he's growing pretty darn well.

Oh my word, he is just precious. Look at that drool!! He's only an inch longer than miss Sprig, but he's got her beat in the roll department, for sure! ;)

I know what you mean - appointment might be pointless but it's fun to see how he's growing!! William has his nine month appointment tomorrow and even to just weigh and measure him, I'm excited. haha
