Payton had her 9-month checkup today with the pediatrician. She weighed in at 19 lbs. 3 oz. and measured 27 inches long. Her weight was a little less than last time, but the doc wasn't too concerned since it could have just been due to the difference between scales.
Developmentally, Payton is doing okay. She has been sitting like a champ for months now. She is not crawling on all fours yet, but she definately is scooting a bit on her belly (i.e. army crawling). We are working hard with her to get her on all fours and hopefully she will figure out soon that those legs can get her places! And she is clapping!
She is eating mostly 2's food, but can deal with 3's as long as it isn't too chunky, otherwise she gags a bit. We will slowly be introducing her to table food and see how she manages. A month or so ago, we also started her on a straw and she was able to slurp the water right up that straw, so that is awesome for her!
