6 [7] Month Check-Up

Micah didn't have his 6 month check-up until last Friday (at almost 7 months). He was sick at the time that his 6 month appointment was scheduled, so instead of getting immunizations he got a big old shot to clear up an ear infection.

But better late than never. Hear are his 7 month stats:

Height: 27 inches (56%)
Weight: 16 lb 10 oz (21%)
Head Circumference: 17.25 in (39%)

The doctor was a little bit concerned because his weight had gone down a little. I had asked her how much I should be pushing solids, and she told me to continue with rice cereal and fruit/veg once a day but to stick to breast feeding beyond that, since breast milk is more calorie rich, until his weight picks back up.

I asked about his late motor skills as well. She told me about an organization called CDR: Child Development Resources that have specialists who can come to our house and do an evaluation and teach me some exercises to do with Micah if need be. So we have an appointment set up for next Wednesday. I guess we'll see how it goes.

Isn't he just too cute for words???
