9 Month Update - Pediatrician's Appointment

Today was Finnley's big nine month well-child visit at the pediatrician's office. All went extremely well. Finnley now weighs in at a whopping 16 lbs. and 10 oz. That puts her in the 10th percentile for weight, still. She measured in at 28 inches long. That puts her in the 50th to 75th percentile for length, still. Her Peanut head measures in the 50th to 75th percentile, too. The pediatrician said that she looks great and is tracking well for her development overall.

Food wise we are to continue with the solid baby food and with mushed up big people food. However, we are now to give food before drink. No more bottle first thing in the morning...the food comes first now. We will see how that goes! I am also to keep trying to introduce the sippy cup, which she should be fully transitioned to by 15 more bottles after that! We also get to introduce milk between 10 and 12 months. My little baby is becoming a big girl. Oh no! Hopefully all of that goes well...wish us luck!

To end the appointment Finnley had to get a shot and then have her finger pricked. She was crying before she even got her shot! Poor Peanut! She hated all of that, but luckily she survived with a big hug from mommy. Now she is napping because the well-child visit wore her out completely.

Next up...12 month appointment in August!
