Back to normal...

For me at least...

OK, before the A/C went out we did take Squink for his 6 month appointment... He is a big baby...

But, I still feel bad for him to have to live in the hot house the day he had his shots... What a trooper I must say!

So, he is doing well... Hanging out in the 75th percentile for weight, 92% for height and that gorgeous head is a wonderful 70%... If I age adjust those numbers, I have one huge baby... All in the 90 -100+ percentiles... yikes! He is spitting out his iron supplement... But, Squink's pediatrician is not as concerned as the other doc... And I have never been as worried, plus the kids eats amazing amounts of food! Is it normal to use two jars or baby food per meal (not there yet, but may be soon from what he is appearing to want to eat...)?

He slept through his first firework show (so did I for that matter), but considering we live in a highly flammable desert, I am not that concerned that I missed such a fire hazard, not when family in Europe are calling to ask if we are on fire... The fires are no where near where we live (Phew!) Though our skies are frightfully cloudy!

I once got to see fireworks in Chicago, that was wonderful!

Schatzy and Squink

That's impressive that he slept through the fireworks, hopefully he'll always do that and not be afraid of them!

What a sweet blog you have. I have only gotten thru about half of the archives but be sure I will be back. My baby Dominic was born at 27 weeks and I was on bed rest for 6 of those weeks, 10 of those days in the hospital. He is doing wonderful. Big and beautiful and the smartest! (says me, proud mama) Isn't it amazing how resilient these tiny ones can be? I'm glad to be reading a similar story. Best of luck to you and your family!! ~j
