9 month miscellany

As some of you know, I've been seriously under the weather this week. Blek. Just a cold, but it's a doozy.

So, since I've already put the majority of my creative energy into the post below about Stacy's c-section date being moved up 10 days, I'm succumbing to a boring list to report on Seth's 9-month well-baby check-up.

  • 16 lbs., 14 oz. (3%...which Dr. H said to expect to fall off the charts by his one year. Hrmph.)
  • 26 3/4" (10%...not too shabby!)
  • 8 teeth, with molars on the way. I was spoiled by the ease with which he cut the first batch; these new ones are turning Seth into Monster-Boy.
  • We can start the transition to cow's milk!!! This was the most exciting news for me, as my supply has taken a hard hit, and I knew there was no way we were going to make it to my one-year goal. The new plan is to pump as much as I can between now and early November (I'll be out of town for 4 days, and I figure it's as good a time as any to wean), and be transitioned to milk by then. We'll see.

And that's that. Seth was given a clean bill of health on Monday, but. BUT. His temperature was 102.6 at two o'clock this morning. =( Not fun for any of us to wake up to. Tylenol got his temp under control, and Jenny promised to be extra generous with snuggles today, so here's hoping all he needs is some extra TLC.

Alright, interpeeps. I'm out for a bit. Need to go replenish the Kleenex. Stupid drippy nose. Hope you're all enjoying the gorgeous fall weather as much as we are!
