Ryan had his 9 month check up yesterday (his shot free check up I might add!).
He is 18 pounds 8 oz (25th percentile) and 27 1/2 inches (also 25th percentile) - no concerns since he is holding steady on his curve and he is as healthy as can be.
Everything else was great! Once again the doctor said he is ahead of the curve developmentally (not by a lot, mind you, just enough to make me proud). As if on cue he blew her a kiss when she asked if he had any special talents! That's my boy - the flirt!
Stayed up late last night with every intention of going to the store to get my book, but ended up feeling so ill I closed my eyes and fell asleep! I was so disappointed this morning when I didn't have my book to read, but I got it this afternoon and have already read the first 4 chapters. The second chapter is GOOD! I won't spoil it, but I will say that I think there is more than meets the eye in that chapter - if you've read you probably agree!
is still absent! I am still not concerned as it is due today. Not sure if I will use my last test tomorrow or Monday. BTW - Dollar Tree test are apparently very good. They can detect HCG at 25 whatever units it is, but that is pretty sensitive. The sucky thing is that you need to pee in a cup and use a dropper to do the test - ewwww!
Other weekend news...
Ryan had his portraits done today. They were cute (as all pictures of him are) but not the best. I bought about 4 picture sheets and I plan on taking him to the brand spanking new Target down the road this week for more. I figure they will be running big grand opening specials. I think the problem is that Ryan has such a big happy smile, but squints his eyes when he does it! Silly baby!
Festa Italiana was a BUST! First it was raining. Second there was hardly any food! Maybe 3 food vendors and then carnival food. No calamari, no arancini (rice balls), no freakin cannolis! We paid $3 each to get in, walked around, and left! We met my sister at a microbrew for burgers instead.
I think Ryan is sleeping now so I can creep back into the A/C bedroom to read my book - YAY! Oh, we don't co-sleep (not that I oppose it) but it is so hot and we only have the one air conditioner so Ryan is in our room. Most of the night in the pack and play, but many nights he ends up in our bed and stays there until morning. He is such a snuggler, but he snores! Like father, like son!
