Spot Update

Well, wouldn't you know it by the time we got to the doctor's office most of the spots were gone, but where they were really bad there was now a little bit of bruising. His ear was a little purplish as was right below his eye, near his belly button, and under both arms. Apparently, that isn't normal so the doctor invited us to go get some lab work done. Imagine a baby tourniquet if you will! They drew blood like they would for an adult... Everett's platelet count is okay, so his clotting is okay. Who knows, the kid seems fine, doesn't act like he is in pain, still eats, poops, all that. Anyway! The blood work did show that Everett is low in iron, so bring on the meat!

In other news, at Everett's 9 month check up he was almost on the weight chart (yeah!) at 16 lb, 9 oz. Length was 27 inches (10-25%) and head circumference was 45 1/2 cm (50%).

Yay for a growing boy! Just so you know, Sam was only 16 lbs 4 oz at her 9 month appointment, and they told her she was 10th percentile. So Everett IS on a growth chart out there somewhere, and he is bigger than Sam!

The Earth's Best Crunchin' Grahams have added iron, and Sam LOVES them...

Meant to say they told "us"!
