Reese's 6 month stats

Daddy picked me up early from school today.  Here I was, thinking he had something fun in store for us.  I mean, it isn't often that I get out of school early for one-on-one time with Daddy without my brother.

Well, turns out that there were other things in store for me.  Not so wonderful things, either!  We were headed to the pediatrician for my 6 month well visit.  The nerve of my parents to try & keep me healthy!

Anyway, all looked great & I'm growing like a cute, little weed!  I've been congested for what seems like 3 months now.  No exaggeration, either. Mommy & Daddy started to think maybe it was allergies, but Dr. LaCross said that babies don't have seasonal allergies.  And apparently babies also can't get sinus infections because we don't have sinuses like adults.  Learn something new everyday!

Even though it was Daddy taking me to the doctor, Mommy was stressed over the idea of me getting 3 shots.  But of course I handled it like a champ as usual & I was happy as can be tonight.

Here are my 6 month stats:

Head circumference: 17.32" (88%)
Height: 26.5" (77%)
Weight: 16.6# (64%)

So, I've grown 7" since I've been born!  That's nuts!  That's like my mommy going from her current 5'2" to 5'9" in 6 short months!  Us babies are amazing creatures, I tell ya.  I've gained 9.53# since birth which is 134%.  Wow.  I was looking at my big brother's stats & I weigh about 3.5# less than he did at this time & I'm 1.5" shorter.  Click here to check out Cam's 6 month stats.

I'm growing like a weed & it's been an amazingly fun journey thus far!

My new friend

This weekend when we were spending time at Grandma & Grandpa's house for Mother's Day, I met a new friend!

Meet my new buddy, Diego who I named myself!

Grandpa pointed Diego out to me & when I went over to check him out, he jumped into Daddy's hands.  Then I held him & he jumped from my hands to my shoulder where he perched for some time.

After we got to know each other, I set him free!  Bye, Diego, it was great to meet you!
