9 month check-up

Friday, Hudson went to the pediatrician

for his 9- month well visit. He is now 29 inches long and 22 1/2 lbs. This puts him in the 75th percentile, so I guess he's evening out now that he's mobile. Hid head is still the smallest thing- at 45cm, he's in the 25-50th percentile. When the doctor came in and saw him, he asked "Is he really only 9 months old?" He looks a lot bigger than he is due to that barrel chest he's had since birth. We got a questionnaire to fill out and send in so that they can screen him for autism and any other developmental anomalies, but I think he's right on track for his age. The doctor said that he's doing everything a 9 month old should. He got a flu shot, but it didn't seem to phase him. We'll take him back in 1 month for the second half of the shot and for a H1N1 immunization. You can see from this picture that the shot didn't slow him down any. He was raiding the fridge while I was putting up groceries.
