is apparently truly a little man! He had his 9 month well child visit yesterday and weighed in at a whopping 17.5 lbs, 27 in long and head circumference of 17.5 inches. That puts him in >5% for weight, 8% for height and 25% for head size. What a peanut! Of course when we went in for his visit he had a fever, so I asked them to check his ears and sure enough he has an ear infection. The Dr said that it wasn't bad but there was quite a bit of fluid there. Normally he wouldn't treat him but seeing as he has only gained a lb in the last 3 months he wanted to see if we could clear his ears up and perhaps that would encourage him to eat/sleep better. I think he is just too darn busy to gain weight! He is either sleeping or on the move- nothing in between! So here with go with the abx again. Hopefully this time they won't give him diarrhea b/c that isn't going to help him gain weight! He started on multivitamins too. We go back to the dr in 2 weeks for a weight check and then again in 6 weeks to have his ears rechecked and if that all looks good back again at 12 months.
Developmentally though he is ahead of the curve in most aspects.
