6 Month Check Up

Aren't you glad it's the weekend?

Noah has been doing just fine after his little candle holder incident yesterday. We can't even see the red mark on his head anymore, nor does it seem sensitive when we touch it.

Noah turned 6 months old today, and that meant a trip to the doctor for a check up and shots. :(

Noah is so cute every time we go in to see Dr. Fletcher. I don't know if it's the stethoscope or Dr. Fletcher himself (it's probably some combination of both), but Noah always seem so fascinated while he's being examined.

Anyway, Dr. Fletcher was very pleased with Noah's progress. Noah is ahead in motor development (sitting up, grabbing small things, etc.) for his age group. Of course, every baby develops at his own pace. Noah also weighed 19 lbs and measured 27 inches; both measurements put him in the 75th percentile for his age group. Honestly, we thought he would weigh more than that. He feels like he weighs about 40 lbs.

We told Dr. Fletcher that Noah has been doing well eating his veggies, and we got the go ahead to move on to more veggies, fruits, and eventually meats. Yum! "He looks great, just keep doing whatever you're doing," was Dr. Fletcher's comment. That always makes you feel good as a parent.

Noah also got a couple of shots while we were at the doctor's office. Needless to say, his big smile quickly turned into a puffed out lip and then into a crying frown. Thankfully Mommy had a bottle ready to help ease the pain. Isn't it amazing how food is comforting even at such a young age?

Here's a picture (taken with Josh's phone) of Noah in the examination room. Obviously, it was taken before the shots.

Poor Noah! He's had a hard couple of days!

Have a great weekend!
