Brax's 9-Month Stats
We went to our doc this week for Brax's 9-month check-up. I felt like a foreigner in there since we haven't had to "visit" since the end of May! With the spring we had, the Conkling family should have received a frequent flyer discount for all of the pediatrician visits we had.
Anyhow, here are Brax's stats for 9 months:
Weight: 22 pounds, 8 ounces (75th percentile)
Height: 29 1/4 inches (75th percentile)
Brax is slowing down in the weight department, which is completely normal at this stage - especially for breast-fed babies. Compared to big sis at this age, he's more than 2 pounds heavier and 1/4-inch shorter than Mackie. I also forgot to mention in his milestones post that he's wearing all 12-month clothes and a few 12-18 month items. We can't seem to keep pj's fitting him! I have a feeling we'll be visiting some of my favorite consignment stores and the sale racks at Target, Carter's, and Baby Gap/Old Navy soon!
We also had the joy of getting some 9-month pics and sibling/family pics taken this weekend. Our fave photographer, Jen, did amazing work, as always! Here are some of Brax's snapshots. More to come!
