9 Month Check-up

Evan went to the doctor this morning. The doctor said that he looks good and he is right on track as far as growth goes. Evan is 22.06 lbs. and 29 1/4 in. long. His head is starting to level out so his noggin size isn't off the charts anymore. I also asked about Evan's eye color since they are still blue and the Dr. told me that his eyes will stay blue and that there was a 25% chance of him having blue eyes and a 75% chance of having brown eyes. It is crazy to think that we have a baby with blue eyes.
Evan also had to have his hemoglobin checked. I was worried about that because I knew it wasn't going to be pleasant. It was a little finger prick and he didn't shed one tear! I couldn't believe it! He was just mad that the guy had his finger and wouldn't let go. What a tough little guy!
We can give Evan anything to eat and the Dr. meant ANYTHING (except honey and nuts). That is nice to hear. When he is 11 months old we can start him on real milk. I can't wait!
