Hi! Yes, I know it's been over two weeks since I've blogged. We have been gone the past few weekends visiting friends and family, and our weekday evenings have been filled with errands, yard work, and of course, spending time with our sweet babies!
Wes had his 6 month well-baby appointment this morning. He did so great; he was perfectly behaved and didn't make a peep. Today, he was 27 3/4" long (85th percentile), weighed 16 lbs, 2 oz. (20th percentile), and his head circumference is 17" (35th percentile). I had a feeling that he hadn't gained much weight since his last visit, and I was right. He grew two inches but only gained a few ounces. That wasn't surprising, though, since he's had no solids since his throat ulcer/reflux disaster, and he only nurses/takes bottles 5 times per day. We got the go-ahead to continue with solid foods and are planning on giving him some daily.
Our poor little man also has an ear infection. He didn't sleep by himself at all last night (had to be held), so this is no surprise. Let's hope that the antibiotics can kick in and that he'll start making good developmental progress soon! His health and sleeping habits have certainly been challenges, but we are so excited to see what the second half of Wes' first year of life has in store!
