9 Month Checkup

*Took camera but silly me did not charge it so no pictures. :(

Length: 31" (95%)
Weight: 20 1/2 lbs. (50%)
Head: 18 3/4 (90%)

Dr. B. said William looked great.  His ears are clear but his cough is still terrible.  Luckily, Dr. B suggested Benadryl (1/2 tsp every 6 hrs) for the cough.  Thank God!  William has slimmed up ALOT even though he is not crawling.  It does not matter if he crawls or not this guy gets where he needs to go.  He can also go from tummy to sitting (new in the last couple of weeks).  His appetite is great but sleeping at daycare is not happening.  I asked Dr. B. about this and he actually said 9 month olds need ONE nap a day for about 2 hrs.  WHAT??  William is taking around 3 naps a day (time varies) and he is still cranky.  Hopefully napping will improve at daycare.  He got the routine shots in addition to the 2nd part of the flu shot.  He screamed then fell asleep on the way home.  All in all William is on track and hopefully he will be back to himself once he finally gets over this cold.
