Nine month stats

Last week was Harper’s nine month appointment.  She is hitting all of her milestones like a champ!  The doctor was very impressed with how verbal she is already (she is a chatterbox like the rest of our little family).  There was a brief scare when the doctor took her blood to check her iron levels.  It came back extremely low (the average is 10 – 12. Hers was a 7.6).  It was so low that the doctor sent us to a lab because he was confident the machine made an error.  The first lab wasn’t able to take her blood (after sticking the needle in her baby arm!!! Made my blood boil. And despite the fact she used to work for a children's hospital.) and sent us to another lab.  The first person who came in, took one look and said she was going to get someone else to do it.  I guess Harpsichord has super small veins, even for a baby.  The results came back the next week and thankfully were normal!!  Such a relief. :)

Here are our baby girl’s stats:

Head – 45 cm

Weight – 20 lbs. 9 oz (75%)

Height – 29 inches (90%)


Hudson’s stats at nine months:

Weight – 20 lbs 9 oz (75%) (how weird is that??)

Height – 30 inches (95%)
