This morning Ruby had a doctor appointment, another biweekly weight check-up. Instead of just being “cautiously optimistic” like last time, Dr Miles is very pleased with her progress.
Ruby was 10 lb 6.5 oz and 23 inches long.
Ruby’s height has always followed the growth curve but was just barely below. Dr Miles plans to use this as a model for Ruby to have her own growth curve for weight and head circumfirance also. Based on her current progress, Ruby will be caught up to her growth curve when she turns 9 months old.
Dr Miles no longer feels the need to see Ruby biweekly. She wants to see her in a month, to make sure we are still on the right track. Then again for her regular 9 month check up. If Ruby has reached her growth curve in weight by that point, then we will FINALLY be done with all the weight checks. She will be a normal check up schedule at that point.
