9 Month Check Up

Today Audrey had her 9 month check up with the pediatrician. She is 22lbs and 28.5 inches tall. My chunky monkey! She showed off her new skills to the doctor, including clapping, standing, crawling, babbling, and more. She is meeting all of her milestones and the doctor said that she will be walking soon. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

She has another ear infection. She finished a round of antibiotics last Monday for an ear infection. This is her fourth in four months (or five months? Can't remember the first one). The doctor seemed concerned that she has another one, and referred us to an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist. I'll be making that appointment soon, but in the meantime, we are trying a different antibiotic, making this her third different type. I told the doctor that it seems more like the ear infections never went away to begin with, not that they are coming back again and again. I was kind of surprised that she seemed so concerned, but she said that it is an inner ear infection caused by bacteria, not an outer that would be caused by water - bathing, swimming, etc. She just wants to make sure that the ear infections are not affecting Audrey's hearing. I don't think they are - she is extremely vocal and responds well when we speak to her - but I will feel good once we know for sure.

Here's our beautiful muffin:
oh, so pretty!

this is the new face she makes...?

another interesting face
