Took the kids to their 9 month and 5 year check up the other day. Brock was 9 months on Friday 13th! Yikes! That might explain the up every hour last night :)
9 month stats:
75% for both height and weight
He is pulling himself up on everything. pushing his walker and highchair and dinning room chairs all around the kitchen. He is obsessed with the dishwasher and wanting to be in the bathroom and Lily's room. He hates getting dressed and runs (crawls really fast) away from me once he is nudey. He is a snuggler and loves kisses and tickles. He WILL NOT be ignored! The other night Shane got home from work and had to use the bathroom. Brock had crawled really fast towards him and screamed until Shane was done and able to pick him up. Both kids get really happy when Shane walks in the door. Shane said it is the happiest time of day for him. Brock says "Dada" most of the time and calls us all Dada. He is starting to point and I think he has waved at me a few times. When he is excited he jumps up and down. He is in 12 month clothes. He pretty much just passed right over 9 month clothes. People are always surprised when I tell them he is only 9 months. He has 5 teeth and is working on 6 and 7. I really hope we get a break from teething once these ones come in. He is pretty much doing everything a month or two earlier than Lily. At this time Lily didn't even have any teeth and was still only army crawling.
My 1st project competed from an idea I saw on Pinterest. It will be going on the picture wall for now. I hate my handwriting but I think it would be wierd if I had someone else write it.
Lily's 5 year check up went really well too. She won't be 5 till February but thought I would get it out of the way since we were going for Brock's 9 month.
40 pounder (50th percentile)
43 inches (75th percentile)
Good news is she is tall enough to go on the majority of the rides at Disneyland!!!! and we can now use the regular seat belt with her booster seat. I can't believe she is going to be 5.
She had to get her 5 year shots. Three of them. 2 in one arm and 1 in the other. She was so brave for the 1st two and just said "ouchy". She told the nurse that was enough, but we had one more left. And unfortunately the worst one. She screamed the whole way home that she couldn't stretch her arms out and that she couldn't believe the nurse would do that to her when she wasn't even sick. Maybe she will be an actress when she grows up and can take care of us when we get old.
