Yesterday we had Jacob’s 6 month check up. Our pediatrician was very pleased and said he is a very healthy baby boy and all is well! He gave us the green light to start fruits and vegetables, so I’ve been reading up on homemade baby food and am getting ready to bust out my food processor and steamer. I am sure they are going to become permanent fixtures on my kitchen counter now. We talked about Jacob’s motor skills and he seems to be right on track, he warned us that he could start crawling at anytime and we should start baby proofing our house. So our multi-level home will be quite the display of baby gates soon.
Of course with a check up there are always those lovely shots…Jacob handled them better this time than he did at his 4 month check up. He was all smiles when we got home and slept it off with a 2.5 hour nap in afternoon! Today he had a little fever and was a bit fussy at times and I think he is still achy and just not feeling 100% due to the shots. He is still drooling and chewing on everything so I am expecting a tooth to pop through any day now. I have to say that this past month from 5 months to 6 months has been so much fun! I mean all of it has been fun, but this last month he seemed to change and grow in so many different ways that has made for some exciting changes around here. Every day seemed to be something new. I know it is only going to keep getting better! Here are his latest stats:
- Jacob weighs 17 lbs 6 oz (47th percentile)
- Jacob is 27.25 inches long (77th percentile)
- The circumference of his head is 17.25 inches (65th percentile)
AND…..check out his latest skill!
We have a sitter!
