6 Month Well Baby Visit

Philip had his 6 month check up and vaccinations today. He took them like a champ; much better than the last two times he had to have his shots. I was so worried that he'd be a hot mess for the rest of the day since I've heard a lot of horror stories about how the 6 month vaccinations cause baby to be irritable, run a fever, etc. I'm happy to say he's been sleeping soundly in his crib since seven o'clock this evening!

Our little guy is getting big, too. He was 16 pounds even today and 25 and a quarter inches long. He's right around the 50th percentile for height, and a little less than the 50th percentile for weight. He's meeting all of his necessary milestones and developing and growing beautifully, according to our pediatrician.

Our next visit to Dr. Hayes' office won't be for another 3 months and no more shots until the 12 month visit. I can't believe that the next time he goes to the pediatrician's office there's a good chance he'll be crawling! I have a feeling these next 6 months are going to go by a lot faster than the first 6 months. This is mostly likely due to the fact that I was awake for most of the first 6 months. Thank goodness Philip is FINALLY sleeping through the night!
