32 Weeks

We finally had his six month appointment (at seven months).

Here are his stats:
Height: 28.5 in (90th percentile)
Weight: 16lbs 15oz (21st percentile)
Head circumference: 45 cm (76th percentile)

The doctor was slightly concerned that he had dropped on the curve for his weight so we have to go in for another weight check in 4 weeks. I'm not too concerned. This happened with Nixon, and I think it's just that I need to bump up his solids a little bit. Other than that, he said everything looked great!

Now that he's much more mobile, crawling, pulling up, maneuvering between the couch and chair, he's become much more accident prone. He got his first real wound. We were at church and he was crawling around in the nursery. He had pulled up on his knees on the leg of a stable table, so I didn't worry too much. I was blowing bubbles for the kids when I hear a cry. I looked over and saw he bonked the leg. I tried to console him thinking he'll stop as soon as I pick him up. And he did, but there it was, blood coming from his face. As he was trying to get back down to a crawling position, he scraped his face on a screw head on the inside of the leg that I couldn't see. I felt so bad. Luckily he wasn't maimed too bad, but I could tell it was tender for the first couple days. I guess it begins again.
