9 month checkup

Today was Callum's 9 month check up. You guys, I have a NINE month old. How did that happen?!?

He's still very tall, somewhere in the 80-90th percentile for height (29.75" - an increase of over 2.5 inches in 3 mths!!). He's average on his weight, at 19lbs, 1oz (40%) and his head measures 45.5 cm round. As a part of this check up, he received one shot (HepB) which he HATED. :(

In general, Callum is in good health and doing great. His ears, unfortunately, seem to be on the verge of another infection. So, Dr. Safir wants us to take the next step and consult with an ENT. On the one hand, no one wants their baby to undergo surgery (since he'll likely need tubes), however in this case, if it improves Callum's quality of life, I'm for it. We'll see.
