6 months, part two.

Thomas and I spent the morning at the doctor's office getting his 6 month checkup done.  In the last month, I could tell his height and weight were starting to even out since he didn't seem as chubby as before and sure enough they are!

Height: 27 inches {75%}
Weight: 18 lbs. 6 oz. {75%}
Head: 17 and 1/4 inches {90%}

He grew 2 inches since the last visit, jumping from the 50th percentile in height to the 75th and stayed right in the same percentile for weight.  It's simply amazing to see how much he's grown-- can't believe he was in the 5th percentile for height when he was born!!  Everything else looked great and right on track according to the pediatrician.  Thomas got 3 shots, but thankfully he never cries until the last vaccine, so it's short-lived.  I thought he might be teething since he has been fussy and grumpy these last few days, but I guess it's just a phase because there are "no signs" of teeth popping up yet.  We officially made it to 6 months with breastfeeding, which in the first month of struggling with it I never, ever thought would happen.  I'm not necessarily set on going all the way to a year, but I have no plans to stop right now.  We'll just see how it continues to go. Oh, and napping is currently on the up and up!  Thomas is back to longer naps and has longer waketime too, which is fun!  I am working on cutting out the 3rd nap because he seems to be waking MUCH earlier than he used to and I think it is because he is getting too much daytime sleep now.  He did well today without it, but we are taking it day by day :)

Enough rambling. 

Here are a few more pictures from yesterday's 6 month "shoot." For some reason, Thomas just did NOT want to smile, no matter how we tried.  He was just way to interested in biting his lip :):

Man, our little guy is just so much fun right now!  He loves to sit up and play, laugh and smile.  He is eating some solids and loves most of them- except green beans and peas. What an amazing blessing he is!

Sweet Thomas, we thank God that he gave us you 6 months ago!  You are such a joy to have and we love you so much!
