9 Month Checkup

In this post Haley is 9 months 6 days old:

Hey everyone! I forgot to post on Monday after her appointment, so here is the update :)

Haley weighs 22 lbs 13 oz, is 28 1/2 inches long, and has a head circumference of 48 cm. She is in the top percentiles for everything :)

The doctor was very pleased with her development, and wants us to work on getting her totally onto table food, and off of baby food. So far she has had some roast, potatoes, carrots, purple hull peas, and other finger foods. She is doing fine with it, but we found out yesterday that gassy foods like peas make her mad :) She probably comes by that naturally :)

We are going to continue on the formula, until 11 months, when we'll transition to whole milk. That will make Ethan happy as he misses whole milk, so I guess I'll buy that for him and Haley and buy low fat for myself :)

Haley also got the first part of her flu shot on Monday, and so far so good. Her ears where "beautiful" and that was good news since we just got the bill for her tubes :) Money well spent!

I hope everyone is doing well, Haley says hello and COME VISIT :)

The Peterson Family :)

Hey Susan! I hope it's all right that I came here to comment. Just in case you don't remember, I'm Carina from WTE, mom of Joshua. Haley is so stinkin' cute! I can't believe she can already say bye-bye! Joshua just babbles...hopefully real works aren't TOO far away. You can see more pix of Joshua on my blog, which is on my profile. =) Here's to health and happiness to you and your family!
