Yesterday was baby girl’s well-baby visit and she had a great report card! Our previous check-up was in August so we were very much looking forward to this appointment. Dr. C checked all the usual things including weight, height, head circumference and where Gracie falls on the growth curve. Not surprisingly our little gal climbed from the 70th percentile to 86th in head circumference. What can I say, she has a big and beautiful brain. ;)
Dr. C was very pleased with Gracie’s motor skills and energy level. Her verbal skills were also praised and Grace made sure to give us all a sampling of just how vocal she is. At one point, I went to the bathroom clear across the office and could hear her shouting as clear as day from inside the bathroom stall, lol! We discussed baby’s diet and talked about new foods we plan to try this month. Some of the new foods we’re introducing include, black beans, pinto beans, cottage cheese, onion, garlic, cauliflower, peaches, natural yogurt and the spices nutmeg and cumin. With the exception of peas, Grace has LOVED everything so I’m sure she will enjoy these new foods too!
8 Month Stats:
- Weight: 18lbs 12oz – 60th percentile
- Height: 27in – 43rd percentile
- Head Circumference: 17.8in – 86th percentile
With Thanksgiving on the horizon and the good news we received yesterday, the thing I am most thankful for this Thanksgiving is our healthy and happy baby girl.
What are you thankful for?
