At her 9-month doctor's visit, Veronica weighed in at 16 lbs, 2 oz and was 25 1/4 inches long. She is on the growth charts for her actual age which is remarkable, considering she really is only supposed to be 5 1/2 months old. On top of that, premature babies often have challenges in the area of growth. We are so thankful that this is not an area we have to worry about, at least not for now. The doctor was impressed with her progress and really had no concerns. She suggested that it might be time to unswaddle her and move her out of the bassinet and into her own crib, which is something we already knew....maybe one of these days we'll actually do it.
Happy 9 months, Veronica!
