We took Oliver to his 6 month check up on Friday, and he did great! Oliver was happy and talkative the whole check up and then only let out one big scream after getting shots and was done. Seriously, easiest visit yet! Brian was able to make it to this one too, but the punk retreated to the corner of the room for shot time because and I quote he "didn't want Oliver to associate him with pain." haha So I was left to do all the distracting/comforting myself. :) Bottom line - We feel very grateful that Oliver is healthy and happy.
At 6 months, Oliver
-weighs 15.2 lbs /11th percentile (Yes. He is a small baby. But he does have cute, chubby thigh rolls, and I can promise you he is definitely eating!)
