6 Month Check Up


This would definitely be the "after" picture, during involved a lot more shrieking.

Thomas had to get 3 shots and took an oral vaccine. But, I am proud to say he made it pretty far into the visit before he started crying. He even smiled at the doctor who loved his grin. But, I did warn her he was the baby that she told me was a "first" for all out screaming.

Our chunk remains in the 75th percentile for height and weight. I was sure he would break the 20 pound marker, but he was 18 pounds, 8 ounces. As for height, 27 inches. Which means I have a little while before we have to get a new car seat. Those carriers are only rated to 20 pounds!! In fact between the weight of the carrier and the weight of my baby, I have been taking him out of the seat and picking him up to take him places. I can barely hold all of that!

Thomas is in great health, and we made our appointment for 9 months. God bless my healthy kids. Knock on wood, neither of my children have ever been to the doctor for non check ups!!

Stella was 15lbs, 13 oz and 26" long at her 4 month visit last week. She also got 3 shots and an oral vaccine.

Her weight stayed at 90th percentile, but her length jumped from 83 to 96! She grew tall!
