9 month appointment

at 8 1/2 months.

We had Jacob's 9 month appointment scheduled for the 29th of this month, but hey, we'll be in CA already! When I talked with them a couple weeks ago there was an appointment open for the 9th, so I took it.

Jacob is doing really well! He weighed in at 21 lbs 14 ounces and was 28.5 inches long. He got the first round of the flu vaccine. The dr said he looks really good, everything sounds good and overall he's doing well.

He did ask if he was pulling himself up yet, which he's not. He's close though, maybe another month or so.

I did ask him about Jacob standing on his tip toes when he's standing, and he asked if we have an excersaucer or a jumperoo. Yup, we have a jumperoo. He said he's seen that alot, because they are jumping on their tiptoes when they are in the thing. He said it's not a big deal. Sometime's he's seen it cause babies to walk later or walk on their tip toes. But he said he's got great dexterity in his ankles and feet so he should be fine.
We haven't used the jumperoo much lately, but we won't be using it anymore now!

Overall things are going well, just getting ready to fly to CA on Sunday!! I can't believe the time is almost here already!

We had a last lunch with Sara today. We won't get to meet Sawyer before we go but that's ok. Tomorrow we have an appointment to take his 9 month pictures, then we have lunch with Lauren.

I also have to find some 12 month onesies, as I have managed to buy none and the 9 month ones are getting really hard to snap!

We have....

a little sliver of a tooth!!! You can't see it yet, but it's there!! I took these pictures just yesterday showing that at least one was coming.

In other news, he's getting really close to crawling. I give it maybe another couple weeks. He's not up on all 4's and rocking yet, but he goes from sitting to on 4's then back to sitting.
