With the drama that occurred with our last doctor appointment (i.e. me locking the keys in the car while it was still running) I managed to misplace E's 6 month stats somewhere. I was really bummed about that so I was extra excited to get the 9 month stats and share them with everyone.
Drum roll please ...... (And a picture, or three, because that's what makes blogs fun)
Height: 2 feet 2.38 inches (aka 26 inches plus a little)
In case you're wondering, that puts him in the 0 percentile for length.
And, when compared with a Gorilla ... well... he's shorter.
Weight: 16 lbs 12.3 ounces.
9th percentile for weight.
His weight compared to a gorilla is also smaller, in case you were wondering
His head circumference is 44cm
Around the 21st percentile (I didn't get an exact number I'm just guesstimating based on the chart they gave me).
And finally his Weight-for-Length percentage is 42 percentile which means he's a pretty proportional kid. And, in case you didn't realize, he's really little---hence the nickname we've given him, "The Little".
E's foot compared to a hippo foot is also significantly smaller, while we're on the subject of him being little.
Anyway, back to the doctor appointment, we only had to get a flu shot this visit so he handled that like a champ---didn't even cry!
Unfortunately, because E is a little too content and won't attempt to crawl, scoot, or roll from back to tummy to back (or tummy to back to tummy) his doctor is slightly concerned so he'll have to go back in for a little checkup in 6 weeks just to make sure he's developing correctly.
If he's still not moving around they'll send us to a PT to learn some exercises to help encourage him to start moving. Luckily, I think we're okay and we won't need to do that. Since his appointment he's gotten really good at just staying on his hands and knees for a bit before decided it's time to roll onto his back again.
Either way, he's super cute and I'm pretty okay with having a kid who'll sit, unmoving, and play with the bathroom rug the entire time I shower. It makes getting ready in the morning a lot easier.
