Sylvia had her 9 month wellness checkup last Monday. Everything was good health wise and she is still growing at a reasonable pace.
If you remember back to a much earlier post (when she was 9 days old) we had extrapolated her weight based on her birth weight and her 9 day old weight. Based on that, she would weigh 468 pounds on her 18th B-Day.
With a few more data points, I recalculated her projected height and weight. Now, based on new data, Sylvia will weigh 210 pounds and be just over 14 feet tall on her 18th birthday! That is one tall kid!
Weight: 15 lb, 12 oz (5th %) Length: 27.25 in (50th %) Head: 17 in (25th %)
She has been a very active kid lately. She figured out the forward crawling thing about 10 days ago, now she is pulling herself up on things. Because of these new developments, the baby-proofing is now #1 on the list of things to do. Also, Sylvia is no longer a vegetarian. The Dr. gave the go-ahead to start feeding Sylvia table foods. Her first meal - Rotisserie Chicken. She absolutely loves the moist chicken breast. She picks it up, rips the small pieces into smaller pieces and then eats them. It is pretty cool to watch.
Action videos are on the way...
