You are now 9 months, Little N!
It has been a busy month for the Skolrud family. =)
We had our pictures taken with the amazing Holson Photography.
We celebrated Ry’s birthday.
You practiced blowing raspberries.
And made fish faces.
And you FINALLY started using your knees to crawl! We are SO proud!
We had your 9 month appointment with Dr. G and the results are in!
Weight: 16 lbs, 4 oz
Height: 28 1/4 inches
Head Circumference: 17 3/4 inches.
I will admit, my stomach dropped a little when we found out your weight. I thought for SURE that you were pushing 20 lbs! Dr. G came in and explained that breastfed babies tend to weigh a little less and that as babies become more mobile, they burn more calories and their weight gain slows waaaaaay down. She encouraged us to add more high calorie and protein rich foods into your diet, so that’s what we’re going to do! =)
You and Daddy waiting for your appointment to start.
Nurse P had to poke your foot to get a blood sample to check your iron levels.
You were less than thrilled.
Then Dr. G checked heart, eyes, ears, and teeth. She said your top gums are very swollen! Come OUT, teeth!
You showed Dr. G your fish face. =)
According to Dr. G, you are healthy and perfect! Your iron levels are great! She is pleased with how you are achieving your milestones and we will see her again on your BIRTHDAY! =)
Then Nurse P came back in to give you your flu shot. I work with a lot of college kids and they catch viruses like it’s their job. We want to try and keep your healthy!
You did not like it one bit, poor girl.
But you soon forgot the pain and went back to the smiley, happy girl we know and love. =)
You consented to a mini 9-month photoshoot for a few minutes.
But you had places to go and things to do.
Until we had dinner that is. You seem to always know if we have food, little scavenger. =D
We love you, Little N! It is such a joy to see you grow and change and become a beautiful little girl! You are so vocal and you love to sing and listen to music! You especially love rocking out to 80’s music which makes my heart proud. =)
You are the sunshine of our lives. =)
Happy 9 months, Little N!
