9 Month Check Up

Cain had his 9 Month check up this week. The appointment went really well and his pediatrician was really pleased with Cain’s growth and accomplishments.

The following were Cain’s stats…

Height: 28 inches (28th percentile)
Weight: 19 lb 12 oz (27th percentile)
Head Circumference: 17.80 inches (38th percentile)
Body Mass Index for Age: 59th percentile

During this appointment Cain received the second dose of his H1N1 vaccine and his monthly Synagis (RSV) shot.

This picture cracks me up because this is what Cain does all the time now with his nose. It makes me laugh every time he does it.

Dr. Long was very happy that Cain continues to make progress with his weekly physical therapy. He was pleased with his overall motor skills but decided to go ahead and contact Vanderbilt's Pediatric Rehab. He said it can sometimes take several months to get an appointment with this group so he wanted us to go ahead and get on a waiting list. Dr. Long said even though he was VERY proud of Cain's progress he would like this group to do a more thorough evaluation of his gross motor skills and let them determine if he needs more specialized physical therapy other than the therapy he is currently receiving through Tennessee Early Intervention Services.
