Cooper's 9 month Dr. Appt

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!)
