Nine Month Stats

Well, we went to see Henry's doctor today for his nine month check up. When we were there it hit me that this boy has really not been sick much at all since being born. (knock on wood, knock on wood, knock on wood) He had his one virus when he was six weeks old (which did cause the choking horror and land us in the ER due to the low grade fever) and then he had a cold around Thanksgiving, but it wasn't bad enough to take him to the doctor. So...basically Henry has only been to the doctor one time in the last nine months because he was actually sick. That really says something about breast feeding! Or his immune system. Or something. It says something about something, I am sure.

Anyway, Henry is growing like a weed. This visit was awesome because there were no shots. Just some measurements and talking about his progress. All in all an easy appointment. are the stats

Height: 28 inches (5oth percentile. He is catching up!)

Weight: 16 lbs 12 oz (5th percentile. Still a skinny guy, but I was always in the 5th percentile too, so I figure it's just genetics)

Head: 18 1/4 inches. That's 75th percentile. So looks like he got my gigantic head too. He can totally pull it off though. No worries. Henry says: "Mama, every girl loves skinny, big headed boys! Don't you know that?!?!"

Mama says: "Henry! You are way too little to be talking about what girls love!"
