9 Month Checkup

Today I took Tanner to see Dr. Scott for his 9 month checkup. We have really gotten to know Dr. Scott pretty well since Izabel was born and we just love him!

Tanner is 21lbs 2 oz and 29.5 inches long! He is obviously growing really well and Dr. Scott is very happy with how he is progressing. He is in the 85th-90th percentile for his length and 65th-70th percentile for his weight. Pretty soon he'll catch up and I'm sure pass Izabel in these areas! Needless to say he is not getting carried around in his car seat anymore :)

We talked about using the sippy cup and introducing finger foods. Tanner is eating stage 3 jar foods but moving on to finger foods and more normal foods would sure help out on the grocery bill. Tanner has sat up, crawled and pulled up to standing right on schedule. He even waved at himself last night in the mirror! Everything checked out perfectly and Tanner was described as having a "soft temperment" which just means he is very laid back. He didn't even cry when he got the two shots the came with this visit. He is the picture of health and development for a 9 month old and we couldn't be happier to have such a happy healthy little boy!

Check back later this week for 9 month pictures of our little quarterback!
