9 Month Check Up

On Monday Sarah went in for her 9 month check-up. This time Daddy joined Sarah because I was with Abigail for her appointment (more on that later).

Sarah weighed in at 17 pounds, 13 ounces (20%) and is 27 inches tall (20%). Thankfully, she didn't have to have any shots. I can't believe in three short months she'll be going in for her one year check up!

I thought I'd add a bit more about her milestones. Sarah loves to pull herself up! She'll try and climb up the side of our couch, coffee table, TV stand, crib, vacuum cleaner, us-just about anything and everything! She is everywhere. Also, we've expanded her options when it comes to table food. We moved from cheerios and biter biscuits to cut up grapes, green beans, and chicken. And just yesterday Sarah started waving "hi" to us by folding and opening her hands. So cute.

Sarah is growing up so fast.

We also took Abigail to the Doctor because we didn't like the way she was breathing. She came down with a cold after our eventful weekend. At first it was a simple stuffy nose and cough. Then came the fever and a bad night of shallow breathing. I'm glad we took her in. Her oxygen levels were not great. We ended up giving her three nebulizer treatments right there in the office. Thankfully they did the trick, otherwise she was going to be sent to a hospital.

We're going to pay another visit to our Pediatrician in a few weeks to talk about preventing this in the fall. The Doctor we met with (not our regular Pediatrician) mentioned possible asthma.

Thankfully, Abigail is quite used to having her treatments. We had a very hard time in the Doctor's office, but now she does it with no complaints, and even does it on her own.

Sarah caught Abigail's cold, but thankfully it isn't nearly as bad. She no longer has a fever and is only congested-which makes it harder to sleep and eat. Hopefully she'll be over this quickly!
