Abigail had her 9 month appointment this morning. I think the icy weather helped to make the visit nice and quick. Abigail is doing well. She weighs in at 18 pounds 7.5 ounces and is 27.5 inches long. This appointment was free of shots, which made it pleasant. However, her one year appointment (which falls on the day after her birthday) will be filled with shots and blood work.
On another note, it seems like Abigail and I have a good routine going that carries us through the early evening. We have a fairly predictable schedule that includes a morning and afternoon nap that lasts at least 1 hour each!!!! The only things we cannot predict are (1) when she finally goes down to bed for the night (varies from a little after 8:00 to a little after 10:00) and (2) whether she will sleep through the night or not. Regardless, it is wonderful to have a schedule and even better that she takes two long naps!!!!!
