nine month checkup

James went in for his 9 month doc apt. yesterday. He weighs 17lbs 15oz and is 29 inches long, that's 10th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height! Looks like I have a string bean baby, tall and skinny! Dr. Hall wasn't too concerned about his weight, even though I kind of was. He asked if he was an active baby...I almost laughed. He is and has been all over the place all day long for a while. So that is pretty much the conclusion of why he is thin...he is just one fit baby. Burning a lot of calories! I still wouldn't mind beefing him up a bit so after the doc we ran to Wal-Mart and bought tons of food that James can eat. He has pretty much boycotted baby food so he is strictly table food (and of course his bottles). Healthy little guy though! Knock on wood! his head is 19 1/4 inches...holy shmoly he has got a honker! My favorite nurse Becky made a comment about how smart he must be HAHA!

Here is a pic for old times sake. For those of you who haven't been long time readers, for the first 20 some odd weeks of James' life I took a series of pics like this and would post them. I stopped mainly because my camera broke. I guess I couldn't do it forever. Well, maybe I could, but I think when James would turn 15 or so he might think it is kind of weird LOL!

I love the picture that way. Looks like Cooper and James are twins, those were the exact same measurements at his 9 month. I look at it like this they have the rest of their lives to gain weight, if we could just be that lucky.

lol at the "at 15 he might think it is weird". But at 30 I bet he would love it! haha, or at least his wife will. Who I am still hoping is Maddie by the way.

Gotta plot their love at first site meeting soon! ;)
