Six Month Checkup

We went for your six month checkup & shots yesterday. You are getting to be such a big boy!  

The nurse called us back & you were weighed, you height was measured, your head was measured, and your temperature was taken.

Your daddy & I had guessed how much we thought you weighed before we got there.  I said 17 lbs. 13 ozs. and your daddy said 18 lbs. 3 ozs. I was "closer without going over"!!!
Your new stats are:

You now weigh: 17 lbs. 14 ozs.-50th percentile
You are 27 inches tall-50th percentile
Your head is 17 inches round-25th percentile, which means your head is a little on the small side, but we sure can't tell.
Your pediatrician said not to worry because you have no teeth yet. They will come.
He told me there was no need to boil your water anymore, but I think I will for awhile longer. I just don't believe in bottled or faucet water. I want to make sure the water that you drink is "Mommy sterile"!
We've moved you up to Stage 2 foods.

You didn't do as well at this visit as you have before. You're getting older & you don't like being held down, much less stuck 4 times.

Thankfully, Daddy was with us this visit, so he was able to console you since Mommy was crying herself. You wouldn't even let us sit you back down on the table to dress you. You screamed as if you thought we were about to stick more needles in your little legs. My poor baby!

We got you home and changed & gave you a little Tylenol. You were fine after that.
I took a couple of pics of your chubby little legs.

We have to go back in February to get your second flu shot, but after that you won't have to get anymore shots until you are one year old. I know you're happy about that, because I sure am!
Mommy & Daddy love you, sweet angel! I can't believe you're growing up so fast.



  1. Such a cutie! If you don't want to boil all of his water every time you can buy distilled water at the grocery store. ;)

  2. He is such a cutie!! I hate when they have to get shots...breaks my heart. :( Jubal is just a doll and what a unique name. Your header is so cute too!
