9 month check up

The Booger also celebrated his 9 months with a doctor's visit and a flu shot. :-( On the bright side, it is confirmed that he is growing like a week. He is 30 1/2 inches tall (95th percentile) and 22 pounds 1 oz. (75th percentile). Conveniently- the doctor also checked his ears and throat to make sure his cold was just that, and examined the (yet another) rash he has had for the past couple weeks. He recommended Lotrimin for his rash because it is like a baby yeast infection from all his drooling.

So- last night's bedtime routine included a vast amount of lubrication! First- lotion for the little dry patches on his ankles. Then, Vaseline on his nose because it so raw from being wiped 10 times a day for the past few days. And finally, lotrimin under his neck and chin. Poor baby was shiny from head to toe!

I'll try and snap a picture tomorrow- it's quite a sight.

Glad all looked good. I just looked back to compare Booger with his cousin. Jacob was 25 lbs and 29.5 inches tall at 9 months. What a porker he was!!!

Hope the rash clears up with the lotion!
