Nine Month Checkup

Camden had his nine month checkup this morning with Dr. Reynolds. He was a happy camper until they started examining him. I think he's made the correlation between the doctor and having to get shots. Although today, he cried more when the doctor was listening to his heart and lungs than he did when he actually got his flu shot.

I call Camden a chunky monkey, but that is not the case. He is in only the 5th percentile for his weight. The doctor was a slightly concerned since he's only gained a little under a pound in two months and wants us to try to get him to eat more. He's always been a finicky eater but I really thought that he was putting on more weight. After all, he feels heaver than 17 pounds. I suppose I have my work cut out for me now...get a picky stubborn child to eat more.
As far as his other numbers go he's 28 1/2 inches long (75th percentile) and his head is 46 centimeters around (also, 75th percentile). So basically he's tall, skinny and has a big head. lol
Anyway you measure him I think he's perfect! :)

Don't worry, Brier has always been tall and skinny and a hard to please eater. It will all even out once you find out his favorite foods.

Looks like Camden is taking after his cousin Kiera. She was at 5% or off the charts from 9-15 months. I think he is just perfect and hey don't we all want to be thin anyway, lol. Don't worry he will catch up, if he is hungry he will eat. I love your Blog I can't wait to keep up with you this way.

Miss you all! Can't wait for January!
