Fun with Feet

Today was Curly’s (nearly) 6 month well-baby checkup. How is this kid 6 months old on Sunday?? Nutella and I were both able to be there, and Curly did very well. His current stats are:

16 lbs 5 oz (30th percentile)
27.5 in (85th percentile)

Does this officially make him a string bean? The doctor said he looks very healthy, and even though he still sleeps like crazy (around 16 hours a day), there are no signs of anything wrong. She showed us that his two bottom teeth look like they’re going to break through very soon. Then came the shots, and he did so well. He was playing with a toy when he got the first shot, and just as he was going into cry-mode, the second shot was done and it was over. He cried for maybe 30 seconds, then we gave him a bottle and he was fine. Such a good boy! Our next visit will be at 9 months and there will be no shots, hooray!

In other news, Curly has found his feet and loves grabbing them. He is still trying hard to crawl but usually only manages to move himself backwards. The few times we’ve seen him move forwards, he lifts his butt high into the air, standing on his tip toes, and flops forward. It’s very entertaining to watch. He’s also had 7 different types of food now (applesauce, avocado, rice cereal, peas, chick peas, banana, squash) and we’re starting to give him a little more quantity and sometimes twice a day.

Now we’re looking forward to Halloween!
