OK so this morning was our 9 month appointment! Man am I exhausted. It seemed like we were there for…. evvvvv…. errrrr….but we made it through. We didn’t get to see Dr. Bo this time because today was a reschedule and he wasn’t available. Sad. We love Dr. Bo! Instead we saw Dr. Brad who was ok but not awesome. Must be the name. *cough*
ANYWAY. So Oscar is doing great! He is HUGE but anyone who has seen him in person knows that hehe. As promised, here are the stats:
Weight: 23lbs 4oz (75th%)
Height: 30 inches (93rd%)
Head: 19 inches (97th%)
Ok so the head measurement makes me giggle. We always joke in our family that we have big heads. And we do! None of us can wear a normal sized hat. Must be adjustable or stretchy! Oscar has clearly not escaped this lovely family trait (both sides) so I am sorry buddy, you are doomed to share our hat-fate. This Dr. however, seemed to think it would be necessary to make sure his head isn’t growing TOO fast so he wants us to get a “head ultrasound”. I swear I think they make this crap up, but whatever. As long as it’s not invasive, we’ll go with it. Anyone else feel like all these tests are getting OUT OF CONTROL? I mean really. The kid has a big head. Let’s move on.
All else went great and Oscar was extremely well behaved even despite skipping his morning nap. I was so proud of him! We decided to get him the regular flu shot today. It’s not the live virus so I felt ok about that. Also, they do have H1N1 shots available in the dead-virus version which is what we want. However, they were out today so when they get more, we will probably get it. We decided that as long as it wasn’t the live-virus version, we would do it.
Curious about my unofficial poll results? Well out of 23 voters we had a pretty even split. I find this kind of thing very interesting! Would you like to see more polls like this on my blog? Just let me know!
