9 Month Well Check

Bethanie had her 9 month check up today and got an A+ :)
The doctor said she is PERFECT! Yep, that's right...we've got a perfect child!

Here are her stats:
Weight: 20 pounds 12 ounces - 75-90%
Head: 46 cm - 90%
Length: 30 inches - GREATER than 95%

Yep, we've got a tall one on our hands! :) Never would have guessed that we would have a tall child. Hehe.

Bethanie is doing great! She's growing up so fast. She is such a joy to have around...even in the middle of the night when she wakes me up multiple times. LOL!

Bethanie loves to get around...she is always on the move. You have to keep a close eye on her because she gets into EVERYTHING! She knows right from wrong and is rebellious already. When she knows she is heading towards something she is not supposed to get into she will turn around to see if I'm watching and then book it as fast as she can to get to whatever it is before I can catch her. She's such a goofball!

She is so talented...she can already pick things up with her thumb and index finger...according to her Aunt Sheree, that's very advanced. :)

Bethanie loves to stand up and "cruise" as they call it...that means walking along furniture. She is still timid to stand on her own or to walk on her own but she can stand up for quite a while on her own until she realizes she is not holding onto anything and then she plops back down.

We got a toy piano from our neighbor and it plays different songs when you hit the keys and today Bethanie was was ADORABLE!!

I can't believe how fast she's growing up. Still no teeth...but that's ok.

We love our little girl!! :) We are so lucky to have her!


  1. Wow! 30 inches, holy cow, she is super tall. Payton was 30.5" tall at 15 months! She was 27.5" at One Year! I can't remember at 9 months what she was. How do you find clothes long enough??

  2. Haha! Yep, we've got a TALL one! ;) She will have the same issues I've had my whole life in finding clothes long enough. Right now she's in 12 month clothes and growing out of them quickly. Luckily we haven't had to try to find pants long enough because we haven't had any cold will be interesting to see if we can find any when it does get colder because she's skinny too so it will be a challenge to find long pants that fit around the waste too. We will see what winter brings ;)

  3. Buy the adjustable waist pants! Best. invention EVER.

  4. Good idea! I will definitely have to check into that! ;) Wish they would have had adjustable waist pants when I was growing up instead of me having to wear high waters. LOL!
