Our Little Chunk-a-Monk

Laney had her 9 month well-baby check up yesterday. Everything checked out well. She didn't even have to have a finger/heel stick in order to check her iron levels...so no shots! Yay! However, she'll make it up by having a venous blood draw at her 12 month check up...boo. We will be incorporating a new eating schedule (more of a routine b/c I've never done a precise schedule) that will hopefully help her get more of her calories from table food and less from formula (which will help ween her from the bottle) AND help her sleep through the night again.

Anyways...as promised, here are her health statistics:

Weight: 23 pounds 11 ounces (with a lightweight dress and diaper on)--95th percentile. I knew she was going to weigh quite a bit since she's been following the curve, but almost 24 pounds--WOW!
Height: 29"--90th percentile
Head circumference: not sure the exact measurement, but I was told she is inbetween the 50-75th percentile.

She looks a lot like her brother there!

I need more details on this feeding routine. Lucero is waking up too much in the night also, so maybe it would help her as well.
