So i had to take Cooper into his dr. today for his 9 month well-baby visit. He is just shy of 20lbs and 29.5 inches tall. For height he has stayed in the 75th percentile, but his weight dropped to the 25th percentile, which was really shocking to me because i always thought he was a tank. Anyway, the dr. isn't worried because its normal for a 9 month old to not gain weight because they are becoming more active and their appetites decrease. But he said feed him more regular food and only as much formula as he wants. The good thing was that he is up-to-date on his shots, but they did have to poke his toe to see if he is anemic (just a routine thing that they do). He didn't cry but tears welled up in his eyes and he looked right at the nurse and started pouting. It was the saddest thing ever. But he seemed better once she put a bandaid on his toe. Then when i was driving home, i heard him cough a little bit but i didnt's think anything of it, until we got home and i went to take him out of his carseat....i think he tried to eat the bloody disgusting bandaid beacuse it was off of his toe and stuck to his face! I wanted to puke! Then he started crying when i threw the bandaid away. Anyways, Cooper is doing great, we just need to feed him more (i never thought i'd say that!)
Here are some cute pictures i took of Cooper. He loves going to the park and swinging, even tho it puts him to sleep. And its so weird, whenever he is in the swing, he won't ever look at anyone or smile at the camera or anything. It's like his in his own little Cooper zone or something! The other pics are of Coop and Rawn. He gets so excited when Rawn gets home from work and he wants to play with his Daddy. The last pics are of coop after a messy chicken and stars dinner!
So we went to get a 4 generation pic with Cooper, Me, Mom, and Nana in it (we have one with me at 9 months old, mom, nana, and grandma nelson) anyways they turned out so good. While we were there we also took Cooper's 9 month pics and i can stop looking at how absolutely adorable they are. They are by far the best pictures of him ever! And i totally love the place we go for pics now. Its called Portrait Innovations, its by the chandler mall and the people there are awesome (especially when your trying to make a screaming baby cry!) They take like a bajillion pictures with different poses and props and outfits and backgrounds, and then you view them on a giant flatscreen tv! Their prices are great, and the best part is that they print them at the place, so you get the pictures 20 mins after you pick the ones you want! Amazing!
