Luke’s 6/7 month check up

Fri 19 Sep, 2008 at 8:14 pm 1 comment

Wow – he’s really getting “old”. It was his 6 month check up but he turns 7 months next week, hence the title!

Let me see … he’s 27.8 inches long (I remeasured him when I got home since I could’ve sworn he was longer when I measured him last month), but nope – he is! He’s 19 lbs too. So weight for length he’s exactly right now. He’s dropped from 90th to 75th percentile for height and 75th to less than 70th percentile for weight. And his head is 47.5 cm around! (even more off the charts than before!)

So he’s dropped off his percentile curves, but the doctor says not to worry. He was such a brave little man during his shots! The first one he didn’t like and yelled at the nurse. The second one he REALLY didn’t like and started to cry and yell (poor nurse). But I gave him a quick cuddle and he was all smiles by the time we were heading out the door! Compared to past vaccinations, this was amazing!!

Here’s some Luke pictures doing one of his favourite things (sucking his fingers!):
