Patrick had his nine-month check-up today and did very well.  He entertained himself in the waiting room by pushing a chair around and was generally on good behavior.  (It’s a lot easier to take a kid to the doctor when said kid isn’t actually sick.)  His stats were right on target: 20.00 lbs, just shy of 30 inches tall (though the height measuring technique the nurse used looked to have a significant margin of error).

Everyone kept telling him he didn’t have to get any shots during this visit, but that seemed like false advertising, since he did have to get stuck by a needle for a routine test.  This being health care in America, we had to go to another part of the clinic and hang out in another waiting room for the lab, but Patrick did enjoy playing with the pager they gave us (it’s like waiting to have your blood drawn at Applebee’s).
