9 Month Checkup

Ben had his 9 month checkup today. I wasn't there, but I hear he did well.
He got a shot in his leg and they had to prick his finger to get blood. He was a trooper and I heard he was having fun with the Garfield band-aid on his finger.

Ben was 20 1/4 pounds and was 29 1/2 inches tall. The doctor said he is a perfect size and he is perfectly healthy. He hasn't started teething yet, but the doctor said there is nothing to worry about until 18 months. If no teeth by 18 months, he'll have to get x-rays to track those teeth down.

The doctor also told us that Ben can start eating real foods and dairy. My first question when Allison said this "Can he have ice cream?" He can, in small doses. You know that that means right? Twistee Treat & Friendly's here we come! I can't wait to give him ice cream. Grammy and Poppy must be just as excited about it since that was the first question they asked too.

I started a box on the right hand side to keep track of the foods Ben likes and dislikes. I think the fun level is about to go from a 10 to a 12 and the poop stinky level from a 5 to a 20.

LOL I didn't see it, but Grammy said he actually spit it out of his mouth. I've never seen him do that with any food.

I'm sure he'll love it by next week.
