The 9-Month Check-Up

Today was Audrey's 9-month check-up. Now, granted, she won't be nine months until tomorrow, but I think we're close enough! She was a perfect doll in the waiting room, and endured the 15-minute delay in our appointment with the sweetest disposition. All she really wanted to do was get down on the floor and chase after 2 little blond-haired boys that were playing on the office activity table, but alas, I don't think she's fast enough to keep up with big kids... yet. Once we finally were in to see Dr. Longshaw, the first thing she said upon seeing Audrey was "My, what a happy face! Is she always this happy?" We all know the answer to that. After the usual poking and prodding, Audrey was given a perfect, clean bill of health, and a little prick on the finger (for anemia testing, which also was perfect). It wasn't a bad day at all.

So, did everyone finalize their answers on her newest measurements? Here they are:

Weight: 17lbs 4oz (30%)
Height: 27.75 inches (50%)
Head Circumference: 17.25 inches (50%)

Well, how does your guess measure up to our Little Meatball? Not a bad place to start the ninth month!
