    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Barrett had a great check-up. He has grown 3 inches since his 9 month appointment...he's now 29 inches and 20 pounds. =) Both stats are between 10-15% on the growth at least he's proportionate! heehee :sillygrin: We hadn't gotten any direction on what to feed him since he was 6 months old, but it looks like we've been feeding him right. We had transitioned to whole milk at 12 months, and have been feeding him several small meals of veggies, fruit, some meat, eggs, pasta, etc... I was surprised to see that the doc said he has hit all of his milestones. He has just started standing up and can "cruise" from 1 piece of furniture to the next. I always see posts of "he's walking!" on the boards, and I was getting a bit anxious, but it looks like it's very normal for him to be where he is! :grin: He did get 4 shots today, including the MMRs...I am nervous about any reactions he might get. I hear they can happen as late as a week or so after the injection. So...good thoughts and prayers my little guy's way. :smile: Hope everyone's little one's are doing great!
