9 Months

We met with Dr. E yesterday for E's 9 month check-up. Overall, he's a happy, healthy little boy. Despite the fact that we've been through two ear infections and two rounds of antibiotics last month, E looked great yesterday! Dr. E was most impressed with the great improvement of his eczema. E received just one shot yesterday and cried for only a second. He's still a long and skinny boy (just like his mom was as a baby). His weight has leveled out due to his increase in mobility, which doc said is normal. He's also pulling up to stand on everything, Stewdog, the dishwaser, etc. He'll be cruising and walking before we know it. E has been eating so well lately. He loves steamed squash, broccoli, bananas, mango, black beans and can even feed himself cheerios! We tried yogurt for the first time yesterday (per Dr. E's okay) and poor E had a horrible reaction to it! He broke out in hives everywhere the yogurt touched his skin :( After a quick dose of Benadryl he was back to normal. Needless to say, we'll be avoiding dairy products until we've had a chance to meet with an allergy specialist. His next well-check with Dr. E isn't for another 3 months for his 12 month visit and shots. Can't believe our little boy will be one so soon. He's grown so much in the last 3 months it will be fun to see what he's up to in 3 more.

The Stats:
Weight - 17 lbs 14 oz (10%)
Length - 28.5 in (57%)
Head Circ - 17 in (7%)

E loves swimming and being outside!
He also likes to help with the dishes ;)
