7-Month Checkup

On Wednesday, Ken and I had a rare hour to spend just the two of us–we went out to lunch together before we picked up Julia from daycare to take her to her 7-month checkup! Here we were at lunch: image

At Julia’s checkup, she passed with flying colors! She weighs 15 lbs. 11.4 oz. and is 25.5 inches long.

She’s still in the 25th percentile for height and weight, which means she’s little but she’s growing appropriately and staying right along her curve.  Her head circumference is still in the 50th percentile.  The doctor was perfectly pleased with her development!  You may recall that last month I took a photo of Ken and Julia sitting on the bench in the doctor’s office waiting for her appointment… well I took another photo on that same bench this month.  Here was this month’s photo: photo

and here they are side by side, at 6 months on the left and at 7 months on the right: image

Even though she’s only gained a pound in the last month, she looks so much older!

The doctor wanted us to wait until she’s 9 months to come back for another checkup but because we’ll be moving between now and then, she said we could come back at 8 months so that when we get to Baltimore we are not scrambling to find a pediatrician.  That will be one of my first priorities when we get to Baltimore but this way we will have about a month before we need her to be seen.  All in all though, her 7-month checkup was a great success!
