So on Friday we went for Brayden's 6 month checkup. He was just about 6 1/2 months at this visit...you will see why I am aging him in just a moment. So the nurses weighed him and measured him...after both commented on what a big boy he was (an of course how cute he is). He weighed in a 20 pounds and is 28 inches (later the Doctor and I both agreed that he must have been mis-measured because he is longer than that). None the less, he is still 90+% for both height and weight. The doctor, Brayden and I all discussed food and what Brayden should be eating at this point. The doctor said it was time to beginning adding meat and yogurt (as well as some other processed dairy). The whole time, Brayden is chatting up at storm, grabbing for his medical chart--just being his happy, cheerful self. Then the doctor and I begin talking about developmental milestones....I really only have one concern...as of course I feel Brayden is so advanced---of course this is the teacher and proud mommy in me....but he can sit and he's babbling, etc....however what he is not doing is rolling over...well not from his back to tummy. The doctor responds with, "Don't take offense to this...but I have 2 words for you...BEACHED WHALE!" Apparently BIG boys do not roll as easy because its harder for them to move their weight and defy gravity....I understand my son is big....but he is no whale! Anyways, he is enjoying life and eating...of course...and he is just the happiest guy ever---beached or not.
Here are a few photos from this week...
Can you guess who dressed me???
