Nine Month Visit

We saw Dr. S today for Ladybug's nine month check. Boy is she growing! She’s now 17 pounds 12 ounces, 27 ¾ inches long and everything looked good. They checked to make sure that her iron levels were within range so they had to prick her finger. She was so fascinated by the whole process that she forgot to get upset, she also had to get her first polio vaccine* but it didn’t bother her either. She’s such a brave little one!

*for those of you wondering why she was getting a vaccine at her nine month visit we are following an alternative vaccination schedule. She will receive a maximum of two shots at any given time. For more information see: The Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears. I would highly recommend any parent read this even if you plan on following the “normal” vaccine schedule.

No more visits until she’s a year old, can you believe that’s only 2 months away?
