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!

Dr. Langston says her molars are already working there way in (really!?), so by 10 months, she might really have a mouthful of teeth…time will tell!  For now, I’m just pleased as punch that baby Mac is as healthy and happy as she is!

Until next time,
