9 Month Doctor Appointments

The babies turned 9 months yesterday - wow, time flies! We had an appointment with our pediatrician yesterday morning. They are definitely growing.

Ellery – 16 pounds 12 ounces, 26 inches
Gianna -17 pounds 1 ounces, 26 1/2 inches
Easton – 15 pounds 15 ounces, 26 inches

I so wish Easton was just one more ounce. The fact that he is 15 pounds and something, and Gianna is 17 and something, makes it seem so much more than a 1 pound and 2 ounce difference. Eventually he will catch up - for his sake though, I hope it is before they hit college age! Our doctor was happy with their gains, and has put Gianna and Ellery on regular formula. Because of Easton's low weight, he will stay on the NeoSure. This will help him get a few extra calories.

Gianna's weight was at 25% - yay! (She was first up, and the doctor converted her measurements to the gestational age chart and she would have been at 50%.) Ellery was about 10% on the nine month chart. And, then there is Easton - no such luck. Maybe next time he will make the weight chart.

They did do very well on their head circumference - all three were between 50 and 60%. At least they have big brains!
