Nate Learns to Love Shots

Ok, not really. But we had a great six month visit to his doctor. Nate is now 19 lbs. 6 ozs. and is 27 1/4 inches. He apparently peaked at four months in terms of the chubby factor. He's dropped to the 85th percentile for weight and the 75th for height. He is still in the 75th percentile for head circumference.

His heart and lungs sounded great and the doc was happy with his gross motor development. And she said his head looks great! No helmet for Nate! Phew. All that time spent in the jumperoo has paid off, Buddy.

She said we could start feeding Nate meat, so we just went ahead last night. Have y'all ever had pureed chicken? It smells like cat food and tastes like cardboard. Actually, that's not true. It tastes like chicken. But like chicken that was way overcooked and dried out before it was pureed. It has a grainy texture to it. Anyway, Nate L.O.V.E.D. it. He doesn't open that wide for anything except prunes and apples. This kid is a carnivore! After my own heart.

He did actually do pretty well with his shots this time. Far less tears, and he seemed to be in good sprits the rest of the day, which is quite different from his two month and four month visits. Our little champ is getting tough.

This post has to be short and sweet, and I have no new pics. I know, I'm awful.

  1. Maybe when he gets some more teeth in and is expected to chew the meat he won't be such a carnivore, just like his Aunt Julie. ;) Naw.

    Dude, no pictures? Really? I must have them!
