This morning, Debbie and I took Maya to the doctor for her 9 month appointment. It was a fairly uneventful appointment, although Maya was on fire the whole time. She tore up the paper on the examining table, made raspberries in the mirror, and managed to drool on every possible part of the office. She was pretty excited and high energy. So anyway, Maya weighed in at a healthy 17 pounds, 9 ounces (28th percentile), and measured 27.5 inches in length (40th percentile). She also behaved very well with her 2 shots (polio and hepatitis). Dr. Put Put said that she is doing everything she's supposed to be doing for her age, and also mentioned that her gums feel swollen, which probably means that a tooth is on its way. So... all in all, it was a terrific appointment. I guess you all might think it's strange that I happened to have a camera with me at the doctor's office, but I keep it in my purse, and since we spent a long time waiting in the office, I thought I'd whip it out for a shoot!
"I'm so excited to be at the doctor!"
"Mommy, why am I still naked?"
"Wait, how many of us are in the room? Mom, Aunt Deb, me... and who are these other people behind the glass?"
"I'm sick of waiting. Why do doctors always make you wait?"
