Jax's Nutrition Appointment

We had Jax's appointment today. I was so surprised that they were able to get us in so quickly. We headed over to WAMC this afternoon and met with a super nice lady who just happens to have a 9-month-old daughter. It was so nice to bounce ideas off of her since her baby is doing the same things as Jax. She started off by weighing him and measuring him. Oddly enough, her measurements were completely different than those taken at his appointment on Monday. It seems to be Clark Clinic's error. He measured a whole inch longer than he did on Monday. Which is good because it shows that he isn't quite as small as his doctor thought he was. The nutritionist wasn't too worried about his size. It was more important to her that he was proportional with his own weight and his own height. And he is perfect!! She said he looks exactly like healthy babies should look... no ankles and chubby feet! We went over everything that he eats/drinks on a typical day. He seems to be getting just about everything that he needs. I need to make a few small adjustments, but overall everything looks good. She wants to make sure that his weight and height stay proportional and don't fall off the chart (because it's only about 25th% right now), so we go back in one month for a check up. In the mean time, she gave me a chart with servings of each type of food that he should be eating each day. My goal is to get him to each of those servings... or as close to it as I can.

On a different topic, he's so, so close to crawling. He's all over the place with scooting around backwards, and he is rocking on all fours a lot. He also started this new thing where he gets on his hands and his toes (like he's going to do a push-up!). Too funny!

Here is some playtime this morning
Drop and give me 10!
