39 weeks in, 39 weeks out

In and out pics below!
Still have some to go...
Baby weight seems to come off faster with your first delivery

Morgan is nine months, teeth, pneumonia and nearly walking

Morgan turned nine months a couple weeks ago. She had her nine month check up and is weighing in at 22 lbs and 1 oz and measuring 29 point something inches which puts her in the 95th percentile for height and the 93rd for weight. She is wearing 12-18 clothes and considering her sisters, who are 21 months older, are still wearing some 24 month clothes, I would say she is going to outgrow them pretty soon. For perspective, Brooklyn and Bailey both weighed 20 lbs 7 oz (same weight) and were nearly 29 inches at ONE YEAR. So she is bigger at nine months than her sisters were at one year. My giant baby!

She also has two teeth officially in on the bottom. B&B didn't get teeth till 13 months. She is also pulling herself up on everything, furniture walking and desperately trying to walk. Probably within the next month.

Sick baby!
We also had our first trip to the ER with a kid. Morgan spiked a temp of 104.2 (personal record) and was acting pretty off. Couldn't keep her head up or her eyes open and was breathing funny. We took her to the ER and they did a chest x-ray and diagnosed her with pneumonia. (If you have never seen a baby chest x-ray machine, good lord, Google it. They basically put the baby in a plastic tube that looks like a blender to hold them still.) Got sent home with antibiotics. Then she started throwing up and couldn't keep her meds down, and based on the discharge papers which said to come back if this exact thing happened, we went back to the ER. We were there till 3 am until she could keep liquids down without throwing.  They gave her baby zofran (the magical drug used to keep pregnant women from having nausea), Anyway, she's fine now. It was pretty scary though.
