June 8, 2016 – 9 Month checkup

Yesterday we took the boys to Kaiser for their 9 month checkup. They are not officially 9 months until next week, but this was the only appointment available. Our pediatrician said that they looked really good and appear to be right where they are supposed to be, Good Job – Mama & Papa! 🙂


Here are their official stats as of this visit:


  • Weight: 21 lbs. 6 oz.
  • Height: 26.5 inches


  • Weight:20 lbs. 14 oz.
  • Height: 28 inches


  • Weight:22 lbs. 15 oz.
  • Height: 28 inches

Surprisingly (or maybe we weren’t that surprised) Kaleo passed up Makani on the scale! We always referred to Kaleo as our little guy, I guess that only applies to his height now. I kind of thought Makani would be taller than Keoni, but that didn’t happen as they both are 28 inches in height. To the delight of the boys, there were no vaccinations this visit! 🙂

We are starting to get out of the house a little more often now. The boys were feeling a little cramped in their Graco Snugride 35 infant car seats,  so last weekend, I installed their new Diono Radian RXT car seats in the middle row of our Odyssey. I think they like the added room and more upright seating position!


Keoni, Kaleo & Makani…

We took the boys to the pool 2 weeks ago and they loved it! We have also started to give the boys more solid foods. They pretty much love everything – except Kaleo, he has issues with various textures (I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from this tree!)

The boy’s first trip to the pool!!!

    Great article, Paul! Boys growing up perfectly! Quick question…Lucy had to have her carseat facing back until she was one. Is that a rule thing or personal choice thing? Just curious, not sure of these things anymore…been a LONG time since I’ve had a car seat in my car!!! 💙💙💙

    • Thanks Lori!

      Rear facing is required by law for the first year in the US. It is “recommended” to rear face for the first 2 years (this is a law in Europe). Most people switch up and front face after 1 year because it takes up less room in the backseat. We will go as long as possible or at least 2 years!
