9 Month Check Up

Owen had his 9 month check up today so we finally found out how much he weighs. Barry swore he was 24 pounds and everybody else did too. They were pretty close. He's 21 pounds exactly and 28 inches tall. Owen was given a clean bill of health except for his eczema. We were told to start applying a moisturizer to his legs at night and then putting tights over them to keep the moisture from escaping. I felt a little weird buying them at Target today but at least he only has to wear them at night.  

We were also told that Owen should no longer need to be feed in the middle of the night. We are to feed him solids right before bed time and then if he wakes up crying to give him a bottle of water instead. I would be in heaven if he didn't make a peep until 5 AM!

Unfortunately we missed the boat with the flu vaccine booster. They are all out of flu vaccine. Since we missed getting the booster this year he will need two shots next year instead of one. It was nice though not getting any shots this time.

After the doctor we went over to JC Penney and had Owen's 9 month pictures taken. He was such a good boy even though it was during his usual naptime. I just love the one we chose as an 8x10. I think this one and his 3 month picture with the teddy bear are my favorites of him. I'm looking forward to sending them out to all of you.

Well, sorry for the lengthy post. I better get back to work.
