Parker is officially 6 months old and that much closer to his first birthday. He went to the Doctor yesterday and blew Nancy the PA away! She couldn't believe he was sitting up by himself and so good at that. She doesn't want him using a no spill sippy cup but no worries there because we aren't. She said that the no spill sippy cups tend to cause speech problems in the future. I have been letting him drink from a Big Boy cup and I also got him Soothie Sippy Cups and he loves both. His appointment went very well until his shots. He knew that he was getting shots before he even got them. He was screaming, but shortly after he stuck his thumb in his month and held on to me for dear life!
His stats from his appointment:
Weight: 17 lbs 5.5 oz -----> 50%
Head: 44cm ----------> 55%
Length: 26 1/4in -------> 50%
This past Wednesday, Parker's tooth finally poked through the gums. That little tooth has been a big pain for Parker. It has made him feel horrible and the shots he got didn't help the situation. Yeah for his first tooth though!!!
Parker got to spend all day Friday with his Nana and I'm pretty sure he loved it! I had to work and Todd and his dad were working on the fence. He got lots of attention!
We got his 6 month pictures done today at JcPenny. He did very well despite being a tired little man.
It is Well!
