6 Months!

We went to the Dr.'s today for Tyler's 6-month check-up. I think he has finally realized that going to the Dr. means getting some shots. He was fussy the whole time and every time I laid him on the table he would start to cry.

This time he is weighing in at:

17 lbs 14 oz (50th percentile)
26.75 inches long (75th percentile)
17.3 inches around his head (50th percentile)

So he looks bigger than he is! I thought he was going to be at least 19 lbs!!! I guess he feels heavier than he really is too! He has grown a lot in the past few months (he gained 2 lbs 6 oz and grew 1 inch longer since last time) From birth he has gained 9 lbs and 13 oz and grown 5.25 inches longer!

While he was on the scale, it changed weight 3 times... finally we got him to be still to get an accuarate measurement.

Little boy knew the nurse was coming for him.... he got all fidgity. I hate when he gets shots. It is horrible, because you have to help hold the baby down!! But as soon as I picked him back up, he knew that it was all over!

All he needed was his paci and he was ok again!
