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!

  1. Can’t wait for our string beans to meet ! Holland has been holding steady at 30% for weight for the last 4 months

  2. My boys are long and lean too. Makes for dashing men.

    Glad he was so healthy, and did so well with his shots.

  3. Gosh he is so handsome! Looks perfect to me! I like comparing his stats since hes just a few weeks younger.

  4. What a happy boy! So glad all went well at the pediatrician.

    I can’t believe he’s six months old! How did that happen?! Curly is just adorable with a capital A!

  9. Awwww!!!! So, what is he going to be (if anything) for his first Halloween?

  10. Isn’t it amazing how the time flies! My “string bean” is now a teenager…..ugh!

  11. God that kid is cute. (I feel like I say the same thing every time I come by your blog.) That is one cute boy!

  12. He is sooooo cute! Long and lean little guy – he sure is going to be a heartbreaker one day 😉 Tomorrow the twins go for their 3.5 month (4 month early?) well visit. We hope they do as well as Curly did with their shots.

  13. Love the pic of your cutie, as usual. I had to laugh because our 4 month old outweighs Curly, but she’s an overachiever when it comes to size!
