How's This Smile?

Amelia had her nine-month appointment today, complete with three shots, a finger prick blood test for anemia and new weight and height measurements. The blood test didn't bother her, but she did NOT like her shots. She's a healthy 22 pounds (90th percentile) and 28 inches long (95 percentile.) Her iron levels were very good and the doctor says she is in excellent health. She's growing taller faster than she is gaining weight!

Amelia also got the go-ahead to start eating chicken, yogurt and cheese. Yummy! A this rate, she might be ready for turkey, stuffing and pecan pie by Thanksgiving.
