9 Months Old!

Wow! I think the biggest shock of the 9 month marker is that in only 3 months Naomi will be 1 year old. How can that be? She's just a baby! So we try to capture the moments and soak in as much "baby" as possible.

Naomi had her check-up today. Dr. Austin gave her the thumbs up approval. She is long and lean, 28 1/2 inches and 16 lbs. 4 oz. This puts her in the 75th percentile for height and the 10th for weight. The the goal of charting percentages is just to see that baby is growing at a regular rate. So, since Naomi has been at these percentages each time, that shows she's growing at her normal rate.

Dr. Austin also encouraged us to start practicing "pulling up" with Naomi. She has the leg strength but is still learning how to utilize her hands & arms. So, practice we are and learned she will be, very soon I'm thinking.
