Nola's 9 (and a half) month check-up

Best thing:  NO shots!

Size thing:  18 lbs 6 oz and 27" long

Crazy thing:  She's only at the 30th-40th percentile for weight and height.  Someone please explain to me how my long and chunky girl is into 18-24 month clothes when she's only in the 30th-40th percentile for height and weight.  Does this mean that 9 month old girls who are at the 50th-60th percentile are in 3T clothes?  Nola hasn't fit into her 9 month clothes in like 3 months.  I don't get it. 

Worst thing: Nap refusal day for Nola was yesterday which resulted in her crying every time somebody at the doctor's office touched her.  Or even when they looked at her at one point.  Did I mention how glad I am there were no shots yesterday?  That would have been complete disaster.

Side note thing:  Nola got her third tooth last week - her first on top.  And she's working on the other top front tooth right now.  Can't wait until they're both through and she's gotten used to them in her mouth so she doesn't need to use me as a teether every time she begins to eat.

  1. That's REALLY weird that it said she is only in 30-40 percentile. Madelynn was 22 lbs 6 oz and 31 inches at her 9 month appt, and she is always 90th percentile or more... so, that said, 18 lbs vs. 22 lbs isn't that big of a difference. It is weird to me that they said that. :)
