41 Weeks

I'm 41 weeks old.  This past Wednesday, Mommy took me to see the doctor for my 9 month check up.  Here are my stats.  I now weigh 18 lbs, 14 oz (59th percentile).  My head circumference is 45 cm (78th percentile) and I am 29.25" tall (93rd percentile!!!).  I was in the 80th percentile at 6 months!  Mommy thought I was pretty long, as my 9 month sleep onesies don't really fit anymore, but she didn't think I was THAT tall.  Yay for me.  Grandma was just happy I wasn't in the 90th percentile in weight.  She's scared I'm going to be fat.  Sigh.  Grandma, all babies should be fat. (Sorry for the blurry picture, and thanks Auntie Colleen and Uncle Eric for the shirt!).

Most of the week was rather uneventful.  At school on Friday, we had Family Day.  We have a picnic with our parents to celebrate both Mother's Day and Father's Day.  Daddy had to work but here's a picture of me and Mommy.

On Saturday, we met up with Uncle Kenny and his parents for dim sum.  I decided I wanted to wear my animal hat on the way there.
I'm pretty happy with Uncle Kenny!
Cousin Drew was there too!  He's almost 2 years old now.


 Although I was getting tired at the restaurant, once I got back in the car, I was good to go.

Hi Mommy!

 While Elliot stayed home to nap, I got to go shopping with Mommy.  This is my first time sitting in the front of a shopping cart.  I wasn't sure what to make of it once it started moving though, but right now I'm pretty happy.

Like we said, it was a low key week.  Maybe next week we'll have more pictures of Elliot.


  1. Please.... babies can't be fat. Don't you worry. Once you start moving around Grandma will start worrying that you're not enough and getting to skinny! :)

    Auntie Colleen and I can see you're getting your teeth in! Makes your smile even cuter!

    Love the animal hat, Elliot. Totally rocking it!

  2. Julia, I see your rosy cheeks in almost every picture, and all smiles too! Mommy is doing everything right, so don't you worry about Grandma's worries. Yes, once you get moving she will start saying your are too skinny!

    Elliot I love that Husky hat on you!

    It was fun hanging out with Kenny, Drew and his grand parents! We don't see them very often so this was a treat!
