Big Girl


Yes I did take my camera to the doctor...I told you guys the other day that my husband gets on me about taking it everywhere but I just can't help it. I absolutely love this picture!!!!

We're back...all four of us and believe it or not we're in one piece and everyones happy..well for the time being that is since it's almost naptime for Caleb and Allie. Of course Allie will only sleep for 30 minutes and then she'll be up and into everything again...life's great!

Allie's healthy and her ears are great. Her doctor said that everything looked good and that we can start on trying to give her some table food gradually..Allie's never really been very excited over baby food so we're hoping that she'll develop a liking to table food alittle better. Caleb was like that...he started 100% on table food at 10 months and would never go back. Allie had a weird breathing incident yesterday that I was alittle worried about and I mentioned that to her doctor but she seems to think it's nothing. I watched her closely yesterday afternoon and night and didn't notice anything else. When I was changing her diaper she went from breathing fine one minute to rapidly the next and making little short almost gruntlike sounds at the same time. She did this for a minute or so and then went back to breathing normally. It was odd and scary to say the least but she was fine the rest of the night. Her doctor told me to watch for cough,runny nose or fever and if it's accompanied by the breathing then we'll check it out further. She thinks maybe she just swallowed alittle too much saliva or something and that was why she was doing it.

Anyhow...today was her 9 month visit even though she's 10 months now. She weighed 24.4 lbs,was 29.75 inches long and her head was 17.72 inches around. She's growing great and is already weighing what Caleb weighs right now Her doctor thinks she's at her chubbiest right now and as she starts moving around more she'll shed the weight quickly. I like her the way she is now though so maybe she'll stay that way for a while :)

I was getting ready to leave a comment on your other post and this one popped up. Glad you are all back in one piece. I avoid leaving the house too..sometimes it is unavoidable, but I try to dodge it whenever possible. I get too stressed.
She is a big girl. But...I love the chubbers. So cute!
Glad she is doing well and no ear problems.

What a great report. Abby has her 9 month check up next week. Isn't nap time grand? When they actually sleep. :)

Alicia said...

Wowza!! 24lbs!! No wonder she is not feelin' her baby food anymore!! The girl wants some FOOD!! LOL!!

I'm loving the headband!!!! She is so cute!!! Good to hear she got a clean bill of health!!!

The breathing would have scared me too, but I think our mothers instincts kick in and know whether or not something is really wrong.

HUGS!
