Mason had his 9 month well child check up today and he weighed in at a whopping 22 pounds 12 ounces (90th percentile) and measured in at 29.5 inches (95th percentile)!!! Can you say healthy!!! His head was 18.25 inches round (80-90th percentile). Doc looked him all over and the verdict was...HEALTHY!!! One concern I had was about one of his front teeth...part of it is slightly discolored. Dr. M thinks its just poor enamel (which would be a congenital defect) but wants us to pay a visit to a Pediatric Dentist to be sure. Of course he's not on our insurance policy because typically children don't visit the dentist until they are 3 years old...go figure. Here's to hoping its not too expensive of a visit!!! But Dr. M did say Mason has another tooth about ready to pop through. Hope it doesn't disrupt his sleep cycle too much.

Love begins before a baby is born...and that love will live forever in our hearts. When you lose a baby, you lose not only the promise of a very special human being, but you lose many beautiful hopes and dreams as well.

We simply do not see the bigger picture, but we choose to believe that there is a bigger picture and that our loss is a part of some wonderful story authored by God himself.
