6-7 Months!

Yet another way overdue post about one of my kids.  This time it’s a nearly-month-old update on Owen.  Needless to say the kids have been keeping me pretty busy.  Anyway, back to the 6 month update on Owen!

At his 6 month well check last month Owen had the following measurements:

  • Weight—15.2 lbs.
  • Height—2 ft. 2.75 inches
  • Weight to height—3rd percentile

Over the past several weeks Owen has experienced a lot of firsts.  He began sitting up on his own.  He got his first tooth.  And, probably the most exciting first of them all, he began eating solids!  Needless to say, by this age he was ready for solids (and my boobs are more than ready for a longer break between feedings/pumpings)!  As far as milestones are concerned, he’s a little behind where Bailey was at this age, but he’s a completely different baby from how Bailey was and just seems to do things at his own pace!  I’m very curious to see what sort of changes the next few months will bring.  Whatever they are I know they’ll be exciting to watch!

3 Year Well Check!

* To say the past month or two have been busy is an understatement.  I’ve got a back-log of posts that I’ve been meaning to write, so bear with me as I try to catch up. *

Last month I took Bailey in for her 3 year well check.  As usual, I was pretty interested to see how her weight and height have changed over the past year (check out her 24 month stats here)

  • Weight—29 lbs. 6 oz.
  • Height—3 ft. 1 in.

As expected, her numbers were up.  Also as expected, she’s still on the lower end of the percentile range.  But, as Dr. Reinhardt assured me, it’s much better to be on the lower end of “normal” than on the upper end.

As far as developmental milestones go, Bailey is meeting or exceeding all of them!  Some of her current favorites are:

  • Color—Blue
  • Toy—Jigsaw Puzzles
  • Food—Pizza
  • TV Show—The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That
  • Animal—Dolphins

No matter how desperately I try to hold on to them, her baby years are long gone. She’s now entering the 3’s, which is exciting and terrifying all at the same time (anyone out there who’s had a 3 year old will completely understand that statement!).  Can’t wait to see what the following year with bring!
