A Well Oiled Machine

Today Noah went in for his nine month check up. He received his third Hep B vaccine, had a hemoglobin check, and weighed in at 18lbs, 26 3/4 inches. Dr. Beebe told me he was doing great and keep up the good work.

Noah is beginning to stand freely more and more. This evening Matt saw him let go of the chair and pivot to the deep freeze in the kitchen.

Also Noah has begun making what I believe to be monkey face #1. For those who do not know, My "gaganny" (Noah's great granddaddy Hughlett) used to have me make monkey face #1 and monkey face #2. I sure do wish he would have been here to meet Noah and see his monkey face!

Detective mommy?

Well I took Noah to the doctor again today. It seems these visits are becoming weekly, not because I have some over active need to take my kid in and be told everything is fine, but because I know there is something wrong before the doctors can even detect it. This past friday Noah was diagnosed over the phone with pink eye. Since I took him in today, the ARNP thinks he probably didn't have a classic pink eye, but rather an infection in the whole right side of his face. He is developing an ear infection in the left ear also, with the right ear already there. The good news is that we do not have to pry Noah's eys open to put drops in his eyes anymore. He is on Omnicef that will cover anything that is going on.

On a lighter note Noah is beginning to stand up without holding on!!!! Yesterday, Matt was standing with him and let go expecting him to sit down, but he stood there for 5secs or so. How exciting!!! Also, his second bottom tooth broke through last Monday (Jan 29th). Well I guess that is all for now...Wish Noah a happy 9 months birthday tomorrow!

And the Winner is...

Well through many sleepless nights, (Not due to the photo contest, but due to an irritable, teething baby) it has been decided. C will be the picture we will send on to Regis and Kelly. A was the close second, and although maybe the best photograph, not the best representation of Noah's beauty. Maybe we will enter it into a photo contest at the state fair...
