9 month checkup

Well, today was Alvin's 9 month check up. Wonderful.

He is 26 1/2 inches long (<5th %ile) and weighs 16 pounds, 9 ounces.(<5th %ile). His head circumference is 17 1/2 inches.(25th %ile).

So, what does this mean? Well, he is a little guy, with a big head. But, it also means that he is severely underweight. So, we have 3 weeks to put weight on him, or he gets a feeding tube and diagnostic tests to see what is wrong with him.

Also, he was referred out to 2 different developmental specialists because of his delay in development. Bleah.

I dont even want to think about all this right now.
