9 Months Old

My little Timothy James is 9 months old! He had his 9 month appointment on Friday. He is doing very well on all development and milestones. His only concern from the appointment is that his blood test showed he is anemic. I don't understand how a child who eats 30 ounces of iron fortified formula and 2 large servings of iron fortified baby cereals a day can be anemic, but he is. So for the next 3 months Timmy gets to take a very foul smelling vitamin with iron drop to bring those levels up. Hopefully that will do the trick!

I know I say this all the time, but I will say it again. He is a BIG boy. He weighed 26 pounds 11 ounces and was 31.1 inches tall. He is way off the charts on both measures. But he is proportionately large so the doctor wasn't concerned, he is just a big boy.

As many of you know our family will be moving to Chandler, AZ soon. While visiting a friend who lives near our soon to be home I discovered a McDonald's with a toddler playzone. This is so much nicer than those play areas with the big tubes and slides. It is perfect for my kids right now. Plus, it is inside and air conditioned, unlike all of our parks. Timmy and Kristen had a blast playing here. I have a feeling we will be making regular trips to this McDonald's at least until the weather cools off and we can start going to parks again.

Kristen kept stepping on to this stump, counting to 5, 10 whatever number she felt like, and jumping off, she had a great time.
Timmy loved crawling back and forth through this log, over and over and over again.
