Conner's 6 month check-up

Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at Tuesday, July 21, 2009
Today we took our little trooper to see his doctor. You know, the cute pediatrician that Collin has to insult by calling him an Aggie :D I also must mention that I have no problem whatsoever with our Dr. Aggie because he told me that Conner's eyes will probably stay blue because his Mommy has "beautiful blue eyes". Sigh. Ok, just kidding, he is a good doctor but he is no Collin O'Bryant! Anywho, Conner weighs 14 lbs 8 oz and is now 25 inches long. Dr. Aggie said he looks really healthy. But there are a few things Mom and Dad need to work on. Apparently we should have been feeding him way more than we have. I promise we are not trying to make Conner look like a little starving munchkin. I just didn't realize he needed so much cereal. And we need to up our frequency to 3X, not 2X a day. So he is eating his veggies (spinach, carrot, sweet potatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, butternut squash and peas) and applesauce quite well. Now we just need more rice cereal and to feed him more! We also have to have him practice sitting up more on his own. We use a boppy pillow, but I got the sense that the doctor thinks we should have him sit sans boppy pillow. Other than that, his motor skills are developing quite well. He is now able to take his pacifier in and out of his mouth, take off his sunglasses, grasp toys (and bang himself over and over on the head...oy vey!) He did get his immunization shots, cried, then snuggled me, which I can't help but admit melts my heart. Collin was there comforting him while he got the shots. And he was our little trooper. And he is ridiculously cute! So there it is, Conner's update.
