Connor had his nine month appointment today (today he is 9 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days old!). He measured ~31" tall and weighed ~20 lbs. that puts him in the 96th percentile for height and 60th percentile for weight! :| The doctor said not to worry about it if he's healthy and eating -- which he is. He just wiggles and squirms and moves so much that he burns it all off, I guess. And it probably didn't help that he's had the stomache flu all last weekend and didn't hold anything down. He weighed 21 lbs at 8 months, so it's a minor setback. I'm sure he'll be back up at 1 yr again. His head was in the 70th percentile for size, but I don't remember what it measured. Maybe I'll look it up when I get home.
We had family pictures taken on Monday evening by Krissy Allori Photography. She's a local photographer that does REALLY good work! and, she's also Ron's boss. (Long story, but she didn't want to take our pictures because she thought it would be a conflict of interest... she set up a contest so we could enter and try to win it instead... a little wierd, but oh well). The pictures turned out AWESOME. I was totally bummed, though, that Connor had been sick, so he wasn't smiling in any of them that I've seen so far. (She set up a sneak preview on her blog for us to see). Krissy is in the process of posting all of the proofs to the gallery so we can review them and buy the ones we want. Maybe there will be a couple in there that are smiling. I gotta hand it to the kid, though, at least he wasn't crying his baby eyes out. He's such a good kid! We count our blessings every day that we have with him.
Once the pictures have been purchased, I'll post some here. They're really quite cute!
