Kenzie turned 9 months old this week! She is now almost 28 inches long (which is the 74th percentile) and 15 lbs 10 oz (which is only the 11th percentile). As the doctor says, it looks like all her calories went to her length growth. Since she isn’t putting on weight as quickly as the doctor would like and she is a bit slower developmentally, the doctor ordered some labs for her just to err on the side of caution. The poor thing fought the blood draw and screamed her little lungs out. They still weren’t able to get enough blood for all the tests, so she will have to go for another blood draw.
We are happy to report that this week was Kenzie’s last at physical therapy. Her therapist said it’s very usual for kids with her condition to slip into their head tilt when they are tired because it is habit and comfortable for them. However, she is now able to hold her head up straight and can turn her head and tilt in the other direction without any discomfort or resistance.
