Doc Visit and Restaurant

Kylie had her nine month doctor's appointment today.

She is 28 1/4 inches in height which is an increase of 1 1/2 inches in 3 months. Her height is at the 75%.
She weighs 17 pounds 4 ounces which is an increase of 12 ounces in the last month. Her weight is at the 25%.
She has been consistently 75%/25% since she was born.

The doctor was great and let Karen hold Kylie for most of the exam. We only had to put her on the table for a couple of minutes. The doctor checked her teeth and told us one of the top ones was ready to break through any day now. Kylie endured her one shot (Polio vac.) very well--just a few tears and no aftereffects.

Earlier in the afternoon and before her appointment, we took Kylie out to eat for lunch at our local Red R*bin restaurant. Here she is getting ready to go:

I had the rattle she is holding in my coat pocket (you know you are a mom when you have toys in all your coat pockets). Anyway, she hadn't seen it in a while and was so happy to have it again. She held on to it for most of the afternoon.

She was our best good-girl at the restaurant. This was only the second time we have taken Kylie for a meal (other than when she was a newborn and asleep in her bucket carseat). We were a bit nervous but Kylie was fabulous. She was flirting with everyone around her. She ate the snacks we brought her without making any mess. She was quiet and fun.

Until, just as we were getting ready to leave, Karen and I explained to her that she would be going to the doctor's office later in the afternoon. We told her about the upcoming exam and shot. And then this is how she looked--

I wonder where she got that snarl?

Congratulations on a great appointment. It sounds like Kylie is doing really well...another "tall one" on our hands. :)

I'm glad that lunch went well too. It can be really nerve wracking to wonder how our kiddos will be out in public. I'm glad that it was a good experience for you all.
