Dylan's 9 month checkup & May birthdays

I took Dylan in this morning for his 9 month well checkup. I had actually thought the appointment was tomorrow until they called me yesterday to remind me about it. Guess I wrote it down wrong.

The nicest thing about today's appointment was no shots. I was a little surprised that Dylan was happy there and didn't start to cry the second we walked through the doors with the number of shots he has gotten this winter. He smiled at everyone. Just so long as I was right there. When the doctor was examining him, he made sure he had his hand on me. (Kind of like how he has a fist full of my hair as I'm typing this. At least he's not pulling it.) Unfortunately, his ear looks like it's infected again (or still...no way to know for sure) so the doctor gave me a prescription for antibiotics and said it's up to me if we decide to use them or not. Wants me to come back in 2 weeks to recheck his ear. So if we don't give him the medicine now, we may have to if it hasn't cleared up by the time I take him back in. I'm leaning toward giving it to him just because he does have a sedated echo at the end of the month and figure it's probably better if he doesn't have an ear infection then.

He now weighs 19 pounds, 8 ounces and is 28 inches long. His weight is almost exactly in between the 50th and 25th percentiles and his height is very slightly under the 50th percentile.

I know I'm a bit late and instead of making a separate post, decided to just do the monthly happy birthday wishes with this one. Which also means I won't post pictures. (Partially because my computer with all of my pictures on it didn't want to let me log in to blogger for some strange reason.) Anyway, happy birthday this month to Lisa, Salli, Katie and Michelle! Hope your birthday is (or was) great!

That's all pretty good news, minus the possible ear infection. :(
