9 months old today!

Today is Aidan's 9 month birthday (we sang her happy birthday this morning). And she had her 9 month check-up today. Dr. Denison said that she looked great - except for her ears, which are still infected. If our latest course of antibiotics don't work, he's thinking about trying shots. Let's pray her ears clear up by next Friday when we have a recheck appointment. But, otherwise, she is healthy and growing well. Her stats were:
  • Height: 28 1/4 inches (75th percentile)
  • Weight: 19 pounds, 3 ounces (55th percentile)
  • Head: 17 1/8 inches (45th percentile)
In breaking Aidan news, last night she was playing with her Cherrios and actually picked one up and put it in her mouth. It may have been an accident, as the other 15 got fed to the dogs, but still, it is progress. She seems to have an idea about the Cherrio-mouth connection, but playing tiddly-winks is still more fun than feeding herself!

A week from Saturday we are having our homestudy (a meeting with an adoption social worker) as one of the last steps before Christianne can formally adopt Aidan. We are hoping the adoption will take place in mid-July. How exciting!

That's the news from here. Sorry there are no pictures today. Cindy
