Six Month Check Up

Alex passed his six month check up with flying colors. He proved he could sit up in the waiting room, so that I was able to tell the doc that he's managed that milestone in addition to many others. The only one we didn't hit was self-feeding cheerios, but that's only because we haven't tried it. I am sure he has the motor skills to do it!

For the record, he weighs 14 pounds, 14 ounces and is 26 inches long. A little on the little side -- the doc didn't tell me the percentiles, but I'm a geek and looked it up, that's around 27th for height and 10th for weight -- but so there mentally and physically that the doc wasn't concerned. The nurse who gave him his shots was entirely enamored with his bright eyes and obvious strength. When pediatric nurses think he's special, I know it's not just my Mommy bias!
