Yesterday was Brooklynn's 9 month check up. She weighs 17 lbs (50th percentile) and is 28 inches long (75th percentile). She can now hold her own bottle (thank you Grandma Renee)! The doctor referred us to physical therapy because Brooklynn is not doing any of the following: crawling, going from a laying to sitting postition, pulling up on furniture to cruise, and isn't rolling without encouragement. The doctor said that she wasn't too concerned, but she should be doing all of these things by now and she thinks early intervention is best. Thus, we'll be scheduling our physical therapy probably by the end of the week. The doctor said that of all things to be delayed in gross motor was the best (I guess she wanted to throw a positive in...haha). She said that she is more concerned when babies come into her office and aren't babbling or talking (mama, dada, baba, etc.). Brooklynn is quite the talker, so there was no need for any concern there! Brooklynn is trying to get around these days...she just prefers butt-scootin' over crawling, and she loves for us to let her walk around the house while holding onto our fingers. I'll keep everyone posted and let you know how it goes!
