Mac’s 9 Month Pediatrician Appointment & Stats

Let me start off by saying that I’m happy to report Mac’s 9 month appointment was a much better experience than her 6 month appointment!

Unfortunately, Daddy wasn’t able to join us (something about being busy at work…what a slacker), but I was lucky enough to have Doctor Abby in the house ::



Mac checked out perfectly (she’s even stretched out a bit!), and I’m glad to say I asked Dr. Langston about Abby’s speech and he put all our worries to rest. I told him about our experience at her two and a half year appointment (with a different doctor) and he made me feel so much better. He basically said that at two and a half, if she knows 40 words and we can understand half of those, she’s on track…

I think it’s safe to say Abby’s vocabulary far exceeds 40 words and the number of words we understand far exceeds half of them…so, I’m going to stop worrying and sleep a bit better at night!

Back to Mackenzie…

She’s so awesome. She’s so happy. She’s so curious. And she loves to eat…she’s my kind of girl!

Until next time,
