“You’re perfect.”

“You’re perfect.”

That’s what your doctor said a few weeks ago.
That’s what I heard, anyway.

What she said is that you are as healthy as you can be. You’re growing exactly as you should.

You’re a month behind on your checkups, so you were at your nine month checkup the day before you turned 10 months old.

You’re right where you’re supposed to be on the chart. Your length and weight and even the size of your head, are all normal and healthy.

You don’t have much baby fat, your weight is muscle. Without hesitation or fear, you hang from open drawers, the top rack of the dish washer, the door of your play pen, and anything else you can grab and pull yourself up off the floor.

“You’re perfect.”

You love it when we take you places. You actively engage with people you see and smile and make eye contact. You laugh and smile all the time. You seldom cry or fuss or complain.

Or, as the doctor said, “You’re perfect.”
