Just hanging out in the pediatrician’s office, waiting to see the doc. Nine-month stats are: 17 lbs 11 0z, and 28.75 in tall. That’s 40th percentile and 90th percentile respectively. I’m relieved she’s growing well, because judging from the amount of food that is fed to the dogs, ends up in her lap, or in her hair, it’s hard to tell just how much she’s getting in her. No shots this month, just a heel prick to check for anemia.
I was surprised that one of the developmental tasks they ask about is clapping. I can’t really figure out the importance or significance of this, maybe it shows coordination? I checked the box yes for “claps occasionally but reserves enthusiasm for only the truly hilarious.” She is nothing if not discerning.
