The Check Up

We went to Henderson's 9 month check up yesterday and it went okay - I won't say GREAT, but it wasn't bad. To start, here are his stats (more for my memory than anything else):



Weight: 15# 4oz (minus 5%)



Height: 27 inches (20%)!!!!!



Head: 45 cm (25%)!!!!!!



Now, the weight is no surprise, but still disturbing - I mean, he is a GREAT eater!!! He still has an ear infection (he had this 2 weeks ago, along with the RSV) RSV is gone, but ear is still infected, so we switched antibiotics. They did a CBC and his white blood cell count is HIGH (20,000). Now if you remember, we dealt with this back in September. My prayer is that it is related to the current ear infection and will go away with the current antibiotics and that he will be in no pain. My pediatrician didn't go into any what-ifs with me about what it could possibly be, which is good b/c I know how my mind works. We go back in 3 weeks for a re-check and if he is well, we will go to the hospital to have more blood drawn.

Otherwise he is a healthy, developing 9 month old with a tenacity for being on the move!!!!

Wilson did great yesterday with potty training (wearing underwear to school) He did have one accident, around 11:00 while they were playing in the gym - my guess is he was having too much fun to stop playing! He'll soon learn that it takes more time away from playing when you have an accident than it does to actually go to the potty! He went back to school in underwear again today, so hopefully he will be accident free!

Emma Claire had a fun play date with Mary Alice yesterday at both houses (at her house while I was at Henderson's appt, then at our house for the rest of the afternoon). They turned my living room into their "house", bringing all the baby paraphenelia (baby doll bed, high chair, strollers, chairs, pretend food, etc, etc, etc). And guess what - I LEFT IT THERE!!!! Emma Claire is having Patton, Caroline, and hopefully Mary Gibbons over today after dance, so it will all be dragged out again - pure fun!

I am praying for little H today. Let me know if you need some help during the week, as I am available to babysit if he needs to stay home any. :)
