Chim and Badger both saw their pediatrician yesterday, and both kids look great.
Chim just needed a look-see at her elbow, which got dislocated. The pediatrician didn't seen any use in sending her to a specialist, and said that we just need to be more careful until her ligaments tighten up.
Badger had his 9 month checkup. He's 20 lb, and 29 inches -- average weight, above average height. All on track for physical and verbal development (crawling, cruising, babbling), and eating and drinking appropriately (he's moving onto finger foods in earnest now and really resents being spoonfed). His teeth are comng in a strange order but that's fine. I started nightweaning him last week and it's going very well -- it was clearly a good time for him. We checked his hemoglobin, which looked good (but on the low side of good, so we will be diligent about his vitamins).
All in all, an easy, successful visit with no tears! I still cannot believe I have 2 kids sometimes.
