9 month checkup

Our little miracle is 9 months old! It’s amazing to think back to where we were 9 months ago and how far Olivia has come.

Olivia weighs 17 lb, 13 oz (12 oz gain from last synagis shot on 3/29). She is 27.25″ tall (3″ gain from 11/28/04). She is in the 25th – 50th percentile for both height and weight. “Just perfect” according to Dr. Friedman.

Dr. Friedman was thrilled with Olivia’s developmental progress. Exactly where she needs to be. The only question I answered “No” to was if she was furniture cruising yet.

We have been given the green light to start Olivia on whole milk! So bye-bye expensive $22 for a 1 lb can of Alimentum formula! She just suggested we also give her polyvisol w/ iron (liquid vitamin) in a cup of OJ if she’ll drink the OJ.

We talked about our upcoming trip to Disney. She said Olivia won’t get anything out of it but she feels we deserve this trip after everything – especially our Maddie Rose who has been an absolute trouper throughout the past year. She suggested we bring Olivia in to weigh her the day before we leave. This is so if we end up in the hospital down there (due to dehydration, etc) we know exactly what she weighed before we left.

She recommended packing motrin, unflavored pedialyte and benadryl (in case of allergic reaction). I need to contact Dr. Heller to find out if I can give Olivia benadryl with her heart issues and what the dose would be. I also want to get the name of a recommended cardiologist down there in case of emergency.

So that’s all going on here right now. I’ll try and update again before our trip!
