Nine Month check up

I took Ruby for her nine month check-up today.I can't believe she is already nine months old!
She is 14.5 lbs which puts her in the 50th percentile for weight on the down syndrome growth chart and she is in the 25th percentile for length at 25.5 inches long.She is such a little person,she is in 3-6 month size clothes.They also did blood work today to check her blood count and thyroid,I will hear back on that on Monday.
She is doing great! She can sit propping herself up with her arms for a few minutes and she has started getting up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth .She has her own cheering squad every time she does anything:) We are all so excited for her anytime she does something we know is hard for her.Go,Ruby!

That is great news! Keep up that cheering too. Even at 7 years old it's the cheering section that keeps my little one motivated. When she does well with school or anything we do a "way to go" with a high five and she soaks it up and keeps it up.

She's so adorable! I hadn't realize what a peanut she is! I have often thought that the smaller size helps us handle the extra time it takes for them to walk. Sean hit 20 lbs a couple months after turning one,but grew very slowly after that. At 4 1/2 he is just 33 lbs. Just fine for me to keep lifting for snuggles!
