Penelope had her 9 month check up today! I always look forward to her appointments, mostly because I'm curious to see how much she's grown - and the people watching in our Peds office is pretty spectacular.
Here are her growth charts, she's about the size of an average 15-18 month old (25.1 lbs & 30.5 inches):
She's crawling, pulling herself up, cruising (with assistance), babbling, doing Jedi mind trick waves (which are *hilarious*), eating whatever mommy eats, recognizes a whole host of words, and doing more and more each day. I cannot wait for her to walk! Everyone says I'll regret saying that at some point, but I'll say it anyway - you try carrying a 25 pound baby around all day! Walk Penny, Walk!!
Interestingly enough, her Ped did not recommend the H1N1 vaccine for Penny - but insisted that I get it. He did want P to get the regular flu shot and wants all 3 of us to get the shot. We'll see, I need to do some more reading. I didn't get the flu shot last year when I was pregnant with Penelope, but I'm in a slightly more complicated situation this year... so we'll see.
More later (maybe). I don't seem to have much time for blogging these days!
