Chase's 9 month stats:

Head: 50%
Height: 75%
Weight: 90% (19lb 6oz...can't quite break that 20lb mark yet!)

Everything looks good...Dr. G told me to work on getting him off a bottle by one year- uh, yeah. We'll see about that. He can hold his juice bottle- reclining in the Boppy. I'm not quite sure that he's quite ready to start on a cup yet, but we'll give it a go and see what happens, I guess.

She wrote a scrip for a speech evaluation, which I thought was going to be through a private clinic, but the CDSA caseworker left me a message today saying that she got the order, so I guess it's through the county. I think that narrows our chances for getting ST because they've told me before that they don't "like to" give ST to kids under 1, and even then, they'd prefer them to be 2 before starting. Please. So, we'll see how that goes.

Now we don't have any more appointments for THREE MONTHS. Oh, except for those Synagis shots. So, never mind. We'll be in every month for the next 3 months. And in 2 weeks for Ian's 3 year well visit. I'm thinking about asking for my own parking space there. And a coffee mug to keep in the break room.

Yay! what a big boy! I can't wait until Ruby's 9 mo visit, I think it's on Feb. 8. I love to see how much she's grown.

We've had speech out for Ru, they mostly eval & watch her eat for now, but I like knowing they are there, monitoring her. I hope you can get something moving with your speech therapist, too.

He's so cute!! Jonas has ST 2 times a month. I love our ST. She's big on oral motor and we'll likely bump ST up to weekly at 1 year. If you think he needs it, you fight for it ; ) You're the mama!

Sounds like he's doing great. I love the new pictures. What a cutie!

Sounds like he is doing really well!
Yes, push for the ST. We get it monthly now, but more often soon.
