Today was DD2 9 month check up. She's only 16 pounds and 26 inches long. They didn't tell me the percentile and I forgot to ask but last month it was like 22%. She isn't standing on her own yet. Not pulling herself up. Not even trying to. Dr wants to set up an appointment with Easter Seals to do some strengthening exercises and so they can take a look at her.
She is babbling- mumumumumummm, dadadadada, doy doy doy that sorta stuff. She's waves a little bit-her hand motions. She understands how to kiss (open mouth of course but she leans in and opens). What do you think? Should I be concerned? She doesn't eat table food at all (no interest) although I do offer her a lot. Doesn't like none of the baby melts, puffs, or anything. She does like the stage 2 and 3 foods though. Not stage 1.
I've always referred to her as my "baby baby" because she's developed a lot slower than my other two-size from birth and up, eating, milestones:crawling, pulling themselves up, etc. Everything is slower so I'm not sure what to expect. She doesn't crawl on her hands and needs, rather she army crawls. She gets on her hands and knees and rocks though. She has trouble getting from on her belly to sitting. She sits but it's like she twists to get up so one leg is in the sit position and the other leg is bent backwards. Not sure if that makes sense. Should I be worried?
