What to muse about today?

What's in here?

Today we had Ashlin’s nine month well-baby visit.  She is going great! Doctor was pleased with her, her weight gain, milestone progress.

Ashlin now weighs in at 17 pounds, up from 14 pounds at six months.  Up from the 10th percentile to something “between 10th and 20th percentiles” according to the doctor.  But, she was happy with that gain.  No need to test poopy diapers, feed the baby butter, or make her eat in the middle of the night, or really worry much more.  Yes, she’s small, but she’s gained enough weight to not worry about failure to thrive.  That’s so good to hear!  I blame it on the macaroni and cheese, and the french toast, and the sausage casserole, and the lasagna.

The rest of the stats were good.  Height is now 27.75 inches, up from 25.25 inches, but holding at 50th percentile.  She has a big noggin, 46 cm (90th percentile) up from 43.6 cm (75th).

So, good visit.  Whew!

As you can see, she’s getting into things, even though she’s not crawling yet.  She still can move around in her space.  She can’t be deterred, she wants go explore.

      Yay!! Thank you, ladies!! I’ll still be nervous every time we go to the doctor and she gets weighed, but it seems as if we have turned the corner.

          Riana, I don’t think we’ll ever stop worrying about our babies! I still do about my 2.5 year old! Lane is such a sweetie, and so active, I’m sure he burns off any calories he takes in right away.

    That is awesome. I’m so glad your worries about failure to thrive are over. She looks so close to crawling!! And she said “mama” doesn’t get any better than that!!

    • lisasff says:

      No, no it doesn’t. And so good to not be worried about her, and simply enjoy her – when she sleeps! – is such a relief. I hadn’t wanted to say “failure to thrive” before. Maybe just saying it would make it so.

    Sleep is highly overrated…LOL. My wonderful son took 3 years to sleep through the nite..it sucks big time.

      We have been spoiled with Teagan. Though Ashlin was doing better, months ago, than she is now… I just want these DAMN TEETH to come through so she may go more than 45-75 minutes at a time. I’m just about ready to break out the Benedryl!

  7. She’s gorgeous! And never sweat the weight of the babe as long as they are going along on their own curve. My first was 16 lbs at a year. She’s six now, and 34 lbs. On the other hand, my 4 yo is 32 lbs. Each babe has their own normal, right?

    • lisasff says:

      Thank you!

      I had been trying not to worry too much about the weight. She did fall off her curve, three consecutive visits since, from 50% to under 10%. But she has been gaining, just much slower than the doctors hoped/wanted.

      Her normal seems to be peanut. That’s just fine with me :)
