Ella had her 9 month check-up today. Her current stats are 18 lbs./14 oz. and 26 1/2 inches long. Because of Ella's reflux, the doctor seemed a little concerned that her growth seems to be tapering off (at 6 months, she was in the 75th percentile for weight and height; now she is a little below average). I'm not too worried about it as this point...she does spit up quite a bit but it seems to go in spurts and I think she's still getting the vast majority of the nutrients. The doctor did suggest adding cereal to her bottles. Has anyone else tried this?? We go back in a month to check her weight and height again.
Our little pumpkin is also a little under the weather right now which is just sad to watch. She has some sort of stomach bug and she's really worn out but very cuddly. Last night she slept in our bed between us for the first time in her little life. Dylan used to snuggle with us all the time when he was a baby, but we've never done it with her because she usually prefers her own space. It was a precious moment though, and I try to make a mental note of those moments because I know they grow up all too fast.
