6 Month Check Up

Today I went in for my 6 month check up.  Mommy asked Grandmother Lou to go with us because last time I was bad so she didn't really get to talk to the doctor.  I weighed in at an impressive 16 pounds, 7 ounces and was 26 inches long.  For those that aren't good at math like Mommy is, I have grown 8 inches and gained almost 11 pounds in 6 months.  Wow!  The nurse gave me 5 shots today, so when I got home, I was exhausted.  When I woke up, I was still a little sore, but mommy is so smart and gave me Tylenol, so I was happy.  She tried to sit me up, so she could take pictures of my cute Band-Aids, but I would have none of that.  I wanted to take me socks off instead.  
Hahaha, I got it!
But, Mommy is pretty smart, so she laid me on the floor and gave me a toy so she could get pics of the Band-Aids.  
She was successful, so I decided to smile ;)
Ok, I know what you guys are thinking.  To answer your question, I am 50th percentile in height, weight and head circumfrance, so I am about as 'normal' as they come.  But, of course, I am still advanced ;)  The doctor was very impressed with how happy I was during my appointment.  

I get to see all of Mommy's family this weekend, so I am really excited!  I get to see my Great Granddaddy, Great Aunt Watts, Cousin Kristin & Kari, Uncle John and Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kelly.  I can't wait!

Sweet girl! Beks had her 9 month check up Monday. 19.2lbs, 28 inches, down from 90% to 60%. On the way home, she was coughing/choking. It scared her Daddy so he pulled over. Finally she coughed and up came a little round bandaid. She'd pulled it off her leg and ate it! YUCKers.
