We are over 6 1/2 months...but due to our hectic schedule and the schedule of our doctor...we just got to our 6 month shots today. What an appointment it was. I am so proud of my little angels. Thomas is weighing 15lbs and 9 ounces and is 25 inches long. This is in the 25th percentile when compared to boys his age. Madelynn is weighing in at 15 lbs and 6 ounces and is 24 and 3/4 inches long. This is in the 50th percentile when compared to girls at this age. I know...funny...he is bigger but her percentile is higher. Dr. Jester said everything looks great and they are right on target. They also were great troopers with the 3 shots they both got in the thigh. OUCH!
We did schedule a few appointments for Thomas though. He is not eating as he should at this point (not totally out of the normal though) but just to be sure Dr. Jester wants him to consult with a speech therapist on his swallowing, etc. We see one therapist on the 21st for a Modified Barium Swallow Test and another therapist on the 29th for some other test. The stinky part is he can't eat 3 hours prior to the test....and we are used to a bottle every 2 hours during the day. How do you explain to a 6 month old you are not feeding him for his own good? We also have an appt on the 19th with an eye doctor just to check Thomas' eye. Shannon has a history of eye problems that runs in the males on his side of the family....Dr. Jester doesn't see anything but just wants to be sure. We agree!!!
All in all it was a great appt. We got our orders which I am following. We will continue on baby foods and pureed foods I make but no table foods or finger foods yet. I am so proud of my pumpkins and look forward to getting good results from Thomas' appointments coming up.
Good is sooooo good!
