Zachary's 9 Month Well-Baby Check-up

He wasn't exactly a "well-baby". Poor little guy has been fighting the worst cold of his life and he's been miserable. But besides that, he scored well with all other nine month olds. He's doing what he's supposed to be doing and developing just fine :) Over this last week he has drastically improved his mobility skills and he is finally capable of moving around to get to a toy he wants. It's not exactly a crawl. More like a sit-scoot-crawl position - sit but it works and that's the point. I can finally put him down for a little while and he'll entertain himself. Anyway, back to the Dr. visit. Stats: Zachary is in the 50th percentile for everything this month - height, weight and head circumferance. An average sized little guy who may end up being a bit smaller than his brother who was always in the 75th or 90th percentile. Zach weighs 20 pounds, 12ounces and he is 27 or 28 inches long (I already forget).
Alan got another immunization shot in the leg - DTP - He's so brave, he just said, "Ouch" - no tears or anything. The nurses love him. :)
