The Stats: 9 Months

Rose got a clean bill of health at her nine month appointment yesterday, except for a nasty diaper rash that turns out to be a yeast rash. Yeast rashes are pretty common in infants, especially after a round of antibiotics. They are super itchy and uncomfortable, but the good news is they are easy to treat. Rose should be back to normal after a few days of foot cream in place of her diaper cream. Who knew?

Rose's stats are still coming in about the same percentages as always:
Weight: 16 lbs, 13 oz -- 19%
Length: 28 inches -- 70%
Head Circ: 42.5 cm -- 24%

Her neck is still a bit tight and she is still favoring one side, so her pediatrician recommended continuing with her PT for the time being. But she doesn't seem concerned with the long term effects, so we're on the right path.

Rose was a superstar, as always, during the appointment. This time she didn't make a peep when they gave her a shot in her thigh. The only thing that set her off was getting her head measured. When the nurse wrapped the tape measure around her head, she didn't just protest, she completely lost it. I don't know if she was scared or angry, but she was not happy!

After the appointment, Rose accompanied me to the grocery story to help out with some shopping. Now that she's big enough to sit in the shopping cart, she really seems to enjoy these errands. Here she is listening to the grumpy checkout girl complain to her manager about having to stay late.

"Seriously lady, you should try having someone measure your head circumference!"

And here she is goofing in the elevator on the way to the car. Silly girl!

 "Who? Me?"
