I had his 9 month well-check yesterday. No shots at this one, so that was the 1st bit of good news! Secondly, he is back on the charts for his weight!! He shot up from below the 3rd % to between the 10th & 25th% at 18lbs 5oz. He is 28 1/2" long, between 50th & 75th% for height, and his head is 17 1/2", which I think was 10th - 25th%? The ped was pretty pleased that he is already pulling up, cruising along the furniture, and standing on his own for up to 30 sec at a time. I believe he will be walking soon. He has already attempted several steps while he's not holding on to anything, but he hasn't completed one w/o falling, so I'm not counting it yet!
Anyways, the only bit of not-so-good news was about his eye. He has had a blocked tear duct since birth, and while I thought it was getting better, it got worse again when he got pink eye at 6 mo and hasn't been getting any better again. The ped said that if it is still blocked at 1 yr they will refer him to an opthamologist and they might have to do minor surgery to unblock it. :eek: I'm really hoping it gets better, I don't want my baby to have surgery no matter how minor!!
