9 months old and some updates

Time is just flying. I'm sure you've noticed my posts are few and far between and I apologize, I've just been so busy.

Carter has been doing pretty good. Last week Grant had to take a few days off work and took him to the doctor to find out he had two inner ear infections and bronchiolitis. We thought he maybe had a cold or allergies we had no idea he was that sick. You couldn't tell though he was pretty much his normal happy self. He ended up getting an antibiotic, steriods and a breathing treatment. On top of all of that he's teething too. But like I said, you'd never know.

I took a little peek in his mouth this afternoon and his top right tooth has partially broken the gums and I could feel it. The top left tooth won't be far behind. I think he'll look adorable with his two top and two bottom teeth.

And now for Carter's 9 month stats:
Length; 27" (12th percentile)
Weight; 16.2 pounds (2nd percentile)
Head; 70th percentile

He's still a small guy. I recently found out some very interesting information though. My mother-in-law looked through Grant's stats from when he was a baby and came across his stats from when he was 9.5 months old. Grant was 27.5" and 16 pounds. I couldn't believe that they are almost exactly the same size. That made me very happy that Carter is following in his daddy's footsteps.

And without further ado...Carter's 9 month photos;

Today Carter is 9 months, 1 week and 1 day old.
