Meet the Sullivans: Big Boy

Big Boy

Dear Owen,

Today we went for your 9 month old well baby doctor's visit, although you are almost 9 1/2 months. Better late than never, right? We tried getting into the office earlier, but they are always so busy!

You are 28 1/4 inches tall (47th percentile) and weigh 20 pounds 10 ounces (45th percentile). You are getting so BIG, my little boy! Dr. K says you're growing right on track!

You adore Dr. K and even squiggled out of my arms to get on the floor so you could get over to him and pull up on him. He let you sit on his lap and play with his Goofy tie while he and I chatted about you.

He is happy with your growth and development and said my biggest concern should be safety since he can tell you are / will be into everything--he is right, you are!

No regular shots today, just a flu shot.

Dr. K and I also talked about your little breathing / gasping thing. He said it may be Stridor. He isn't overly concerned because it's just occasionally and doesn't cause you any distress. I was told to watch it closely to make sure it doesn't get worse. He says it will go away as you grow and your airways widen.

We're so happy and thankful for your good health and sweet spirit, Owen! You're fast asleep in your carseat in the nursery right now.
