"He's Slowin' Down"...

...is what the doctor told me at Carson's 9 month appointment today. You're gonna laugh when you hear the numbers:

Length: 31 inches (99th percentile)
Weight: 25 lbs 3 oz (96th percentile)
Head: can't remember (98th percentile)

I feel bad for the kid, for how small he's gonna be and all...

Fuzz Head

You might think I am talking about Carson. Alas, I am not.
I feel like I struggled with all those pregnancy "coulds" that people mention. For instance, not everyone gets to enjoy morning (or all morning, midday, evening, night, and sleeping) sickness; but I did. I had also read that your face could either break out, or clear up while pregnant. I didn't have any facial problems that needed clearing, so my face chose the break-out option. The other things that could've happened which of course did were, spotting (which scared me half to death - I was sick to my stomach with worry until the next dr. appt.), serious swelling, the usual aches, pains and lack of breath, and the most miserable heartburn possible. The latest and greatest could that I have been dealing with is, losing my hair. A few months after I had Carson, I started to lose my hair. It would come out by the fistfulls. I went from just barely being able to get a hairband around my ponytail three times to have room to spare even after the fourth time around. My poor husband and baby have my hair all over them all of the time. There is good news though...my hair is finally coming back in! Because I lost all of that hair at the same time, it has all started coming in at the same time as well. The only problem with this, is now I have a PLETHORA of inch long fuzzy hairs all over my head. I look like I have an aura around my head all of the time. The other morning I took a picture of it (without making it worse than it was) to show just how bad it looks if I don't glue those babies down. I am not complaining though; I would do it all a million times over for my sweet baby.
