Legoland and Malachi's 9-12 month check
Yesterday was Malachi's 9-12 month check with the health visitor. His weight was 7.6kg although he had just been fed. The health visitor gave him 2 cubes and tried to get him to bang them together. He just held one in each hand and gave her his best "you're being daft" look! He picked up the raisin no problem and shoved it straight in his mouth. I got a telling off because we haven't got socket covers (although Jeremiah could get them off from this age so I didn't see the point). We got our free books and she was explaining how to read to him even though I've got 3 children and a degree in early childhood studies so I know all this stuff. She stopped after a couple of pages and he shrieked and tried to take the book off her lol. She asked me if I was worried about his development and I said no but I know he is behind. She said he needs lots of stimulation which I already knew and that he should be going to a baby group at TOG which I don't agree with. We have to see her again in a month.
