Bleh, ok so Lucas had his 9 month appt today and he weighs 19 pounds exactly and is 28.5 inches. My scale told me a month ago that he was 20 pounds so either he lost weight or my scale is messed. I like the second option because maybe that means i weigh less then what it is reading;)
anyways, she asked the general 'what is he doing' questions and he wasn't doing a lot of them so she wants to see him again in 1.5 months instead of at 12 months. It's my turn to worry though even though I KNOW i shouldn't!! every time we go she asks if he is doing something and i say no and worry then he does it a week or two later. you would think i would learn by now:rolleyes:
so what he isn't doing that he "should" be doing is
pincer grasp- he uses a fist to eat still but sometimes if i hand him something he holds it in his fingers.
sitting for long periods of time- he can sit, he just falls over all the time and doesn't really seem to care. maybe if i let him do it more he will get better at it? i probably don't sit him down as much as i should.
crawling- not sure if this was one of them though i did tell her he gets around fine by dragging himself
looking when his name is called- he does look when he hears voices or sometimes when you say his name, but most of the time he is so interested in what he is looking at he ignores you. i told her this so i don't know if that was one of them either.
she also told me to start giving him meat, but i will start another thread on that one;)
