6 Month Check up

So, we had our 6 month check up and needle today!

Ethan is a happy, healthy boy and took very well to this needle. Just a small little fuss and that was it!

He weighed in at 17 lbs 4 ounces, and the debate is on about his height.

The receptionist measures the babies, and when she measured him it came up as 26.1 inches, which is pretty much what he was 2 months ago. So, they are going with the thought that he was 'mis-measured' at his last visit, but infact, when measured correctly at this visit he is just about 27 inches. I tried to show the receptionist that, and she wouldn't listen. Basically when she measured him she didn't straighten his leg completely, and it was over to the side, which obviously will give you an inaccurate reading. But, she knows what she is doing best, so of course she wouldn't let me show her different! Oh well!! I know the real truth .... LOL!!!

Our doctor has given us the go ahead to start giving Ethan dairy as well. So he is good to have cottage cheese, regular cheese and yoghurt. Of course, no milk yet other then breast milk! He once again had no issues with the fact that we are on 3 meals a day as Ethan is tolerating it all quite well and really enjoying his food!

Next checkup will be in February as a follow up for the Kidney Ultrasound and then in March for his 9 month check!!
