9 Months

Reese is 9 months old today! We spent most of the day watching the inauguration. Here's a photo I took to remember the day:

That's President Bush (41) on the screen.

He fell asleep just before Obama took the oath, or I would have snapped a picture of him with President Obama. I'll be sure to tell him all about it someday.

We went to visit Dr. Johnson this afternoon for Reese's 9 month checkup. Reese weighed in at 18 pounds 14 ounces, which puts him near the 50th percentile. He's 28 inches long, which is also the 50th percentile. They drew blood for an iron test and gave Reese 2 shots, and he didn't shed a tear or even grimace. (He gets that from me. His dad would have cried and then passed out.) His 6th tooth has broken through and his 7th is not far behind. I'm very happy to report that teething is going much easier this time!

Here are a few more shots from today:
