I should label this post “photo dump” because yesterday we put on a super cute outfit (one that Mema and Nina will LOVE) and headed off to the doctor’s office, for Vivien’s check up. Since Eli got a new job, we were in a weird limbo between insurance companies, so her 9 month appointment had been pushed back to now.
We met our new pediatrician, and she’s fantastic. We talked about weaning Vivien off breastfeeding around 12 months, and how to go about doing that by gradually introducing sippy cups of whole milk. She basically gave us the “Ok” to start mixing whole cow’s milk into her cereal, or whatever, since she already eats cheese and yogurt and milk in things.
And she gave us some stats:
- Vivien weighs 17 lb and 7.5 oz and is in the 26th percentile.
- Vivien is 28.5 inches and is in the 54th percentile for height.
Yep, she’s just a petite kind of a gal.
She obviously ate something orange (I think some cheese?) before her outfit photo-shoot, so her neck part of the onesie is all janky lookin’. Oops.
Then later on that night, I cooked dinner (chicken and tortellini) and we all sat down and enjoyed a family dinner. (We obviously need to work on Vivien’s table etiquette, who’s family does she think she’s in….Honey Boo Boo’s? She and “Mama June” can talk about neck crust together.)
Dirty little tortellini face.
She always curls her toes under the tray and “grabs on” haha
Raise your hand if you’re a messy eater!
