Garrett had his 9 month Check up today it went pretty smoothly other than the poo explosion he had on his way to the appointment. DUMB PRUNES! Here are his stats Height: 30 inches- 90th % Weight: 22lbs 13oz- 75th % Head: 46 1/4cm- 75th % He also had a flu shot I wasn't planning on him getting because I didn't order it ahead of time like the asked me to. When his Pediatrician mentioned they had ordered extras of the Thimerosal free flu shot I decided to get it. I have been so freaked out about shots with the Mercury based preservative Thimerosal so It eased my mind having the shot without it. He also slept right through the shot. Garrett has started eating real people food just broken up really small. He loves string cheese and cheerios. Last week he started standing unassisted and not holding on to anything for about 5 seconds it lasted until he tried to take a step and lost his balance. He is so fast with his monkey crawling- by monkey crawling I mean on all fours with his bum up in the air. It is so funny watching him. He is also mimicking words we say in addition to the few he knows and understands what they mean. He is growing up sooooo fast.
