The time has come again for a Wellness check-up with Charlie’s doctors (Nine Months!) Everything proved to go really well again. As for the major stats, they are as follows:
75% for head circumference – not sure of the exact measurement
22.7 lbs – 75% for weight (3.3 pounds in 3 months)
29.5 inches – close to 90% for height (almost 2 inches in 3 months)
He did great and the doctor was very happy with his growth! We told her of his crawling, sitting up on his own, standing up by pulling up against things. The funniest part of the appointment was when she asked if he responded to words we say to him, like bye-bye – he proceeded to wave at her! (The answer obviously being YES!)
Getting up through the night is apparently fairly common and we’ll be working on re-training him the next few days. He also receive TWO (!!!) shots and a finger prick for lead poisoning. He cried despite a bottle being at the ready and he CLEARLY knew what the nurse was up to when she came back into the room. All in all – we both survived (thankfully) and he drifted off to sleep pretty early tonight. We go back in one month for more shots (rolling schedule) and then for his YEAR appointment! WHERE is this time going?!
BTW – he does NOT have lead poisoning.
