Measuring Up

We had a great 6 month check up today. JD is looking good and right on track. He is in the 90th percentile for his height (28 inches) and 45th for his weight (17 pounds).

The doctor was impressed when JD did a chin up on the doctor's hands on the examining table. JD already knows how to get really tense around doctors. He gets that from his mother.

JD took his shots like a man and just cried a little this time. He got a few extra doses to get him ready for all the winter illnesses (Rotavirus and Flu) that attack little babies. I am all in favor of avoiding anything else that hits him like this last stomach bug did. We are still dealing with multiple "code browns" daily (sometimes hourly).

He got the thumbs up to start real food this week - first cereal, then vegetables. I already told his daddy that he would need to wait a little longer before trying his first cheeseburger.

Our little guy is growing up!

I thought about y'all yesterday when I was seeing a three year old for some shots she needed. Glad he did okay! He is such a cutie!!

So he is a handsome, tall & thin guy! I know he will pass up midget (I mean, Ellie Beth) soon in height and weight. By the way, what is JD's height and his weight? We have doctor check ups for the next 3 weeks in a row (EB's ears, Emma 6-yr, EB 21-month), so I will let you know the results!
Glad he is doing so well! Good luck with all the food. I'll bet after a week or two, he is really going to enjoy eating solids!
