9 month Pediatrician visit

by Juliemara

Yesterday was the girls 9 month pediatrician visit.

The girls were in a great mood at the doctors office. Playing and laughing with each other while we waited for the doctor.

The doctor was happy with their growth since their last check up. He said the were on the skinny side but it’s ok. They are definitely skinnier than most of he other babies I see their age, but the are so muscular I wouldn’t call them skinny.

Here’s how they measured up:

Baby A – Talia
Weight 16lbs 15 ozs, 25th percentile
Height 27 1/2″, 50th percentile
Head circumference 44.3cm, 50th percentile


Baby b – Jordan
Weight 16lbs 12 ozs, 25th percentile
Height 27 1/2″, 50th percentile
Head circumference 43.2cm, 50th percentile


The nurses asked questions like are they crawling-yes, are they pulling up-yes, do they understand “no” and “good bye”-well, if a big smile means they understand, sure, they completely understand.


Then the doctor told me that waking up in the middle of the night is common at this age, it won’t last forever. Great, do only three more months of 4am play sessions, and they can eat almost everything, which they mostly do, and the next milestone is that they should start talking. We can’t wait to see if their first word is in Hebrew or English!

Over all the doctor said they are doing great, they are perfect! He kept telling them that they are so cute. He even tried to eat Jordan, I don’t blame him, I suggested he start with he inside of the elbow, it’s my favorite baby part! He also noticed the girls personality differences, Jordan is our very serious girl and Talia has a funny little sense of humor.

Thankfully there were no shots at this visit, but the girls did have to get a toe prick to get blood to test their iron levels (which are fine), the girls did great, Talia cried a bit but Jordan just looked at the nurse with her “what in the world are you doing” look.

Next check up, 12 months! Crazy how time has flown by. The doctor assured me there is no cure for babies growing up. Oh well, I’m sure toddlers will be fun too.


Going to the Dr is hard work, the girls went straight to sleep at bedtime, no crying! Jordan woke up at 2:30, but all she needed was her pacifier and she went back to sleep. They both slept until 5:30. Next goal, teaching them to sleep in, at least until 6:30!
