Back on Track

Caleb had his nine month check up today (although he technically doesn't turn nine months old until tomorrow). When we took him in at the beginning of the month, he weighed in at 16 pounds 13 ounces. After two and a half weeks of bulking that little baby up, he weighed in today at a whopping 17 pounds 14 ounces! He gained a whole pound in two and a half weeks. So, now we can say with much confidence, that we switched him to the bottle because he wasn't getting enough to eat from nursing. And look at him now!

He's still not back up to his normal 25th percentile, but he's making progress. The doctor was quite pleased and thinks that we have nothing to worry about with our little guy.

In case you really want to know the rest of his stats...Caleb measured 27.5 inches long with a head circumference of 44.5 cm. Which makes him still in the 25th percentile for both of those.

That's awesome. teak was 26.5 inches and 16-9 with head at 46.5. Teak is small and we will see in two weeks how big he has gotten. I don't think very big and the kid isn't bulking up. Doug feeds him sweets and I think that is making him not hungry. He will only eat two meals lately.
