9 months and counting!

Cole had his 9 month well baby today! Things are looking good! The doctor was very happy with his progress developmentally and physically. She even made me cry a little when she started telling me what a great job I'm doing with Cole and how proud she was of the mom that I am with him. I even saw some tears in her eyes. Ughh I'm such a cry baby! lol

9 month stats:

Weight: 18 lbs. 13.6oz

Length: 27 1/8 inches

Head: 52 1/cm (ya, I know...pretty big)

Cole is having some x-rays done tomorrow with his orthopedic doctor. Really hoping everything is looking good there and I just found out that his next MRI will be in July to follow up the last one. Still not out of the clear with the head :(

Brooks' parents got here today, Nana and Grandpa, and Cole is LOVING having them around. He is happy and giggling and showing off all of his new crawling skills! He is such a crack up. They haven't seen him since Christmas, so it's a treat for both of them.

We are off to Michigan on Friday! I will for sure have lots of pictures and stories to share when we return. I'm sooooo sad that I won't be able to meet in person all of my Michigan friends. We will definitely meet in the future...I promise! Til next week!

Ok, this last picture is just too freaking cute! Oh, and Cole better look out - Noah is going to catch up to him in weight!! LOL. He has his 4 month well baby tomorrow and we'll see just how much my little sack of potatoes really weighs. Last time we weighed him at home he was 15lbs 4 oz...LOL...he's all belly! Cole should have a little package waiting for him when you get home from your trip! Hope you enjoy it. :)

Very Cute pic of Cole! I swear Caden has that same pose and same facial expression!

Good luck with the MRI. I hate that part of our little achons! I wish we could learn to enjoy every minute 100% and not always worry about the next doctor appointment.

Have fun on your vacation!
