Connor went in for his 6 month check up today. He weighed 20 lbs. 13 oz. which puts him in the 95th percentile. He's back on the chart...at 4 months he was greater than 95th! His height was 27 1/4 inches which is 75-90th percentile...same as last month. And his head circumference is still in the greater than 95th percentile...big brains = smart kid. He got one shot and did not cry at all.
We talked about his crawling, or lack of crawling actually. She said bigger kids develop later...does that mean he'll be two before he crawls? I showed her the "tooth" that was coming in. She said it wasn't a tooth at all! It's a cyst, kind of like the one he had on his chest. So no teeth yet, and no Cheerios until the teeth come in.
Other than that no big news. He seems to be having some troubles with allergies right now, but that's to be expected with his parents being who they are. She did ask about sleeping. I said he was doing ok until we got back from Ireland. Since then he wakes up about 6 times a night! Thanks Lydia! I said I wasn't prepared to let him cry it out yet and she said that's all she had to recommend. So for now I just need to work with him, but that usually around 1 year they all tend to straighten out.
So that's where we are. Connor exceeds at eating and not at moving!
PS - Connor made a complete roll this afternoon...back to belly to back! Again, he was trying to get my cell phone, but whatever motivates him works for me. He also made his first snot bubble today! Those allergies are really getting him today (hope it's allergies).
