6-month appt

EJ weighed in at a hefty 15 lbs 6 oz yesterday. He's gained a full 10 lbs in the short six months of his life. He's also up to 26.5 inches (he started at 19"). He also got one oral (which he loves) and two IM vaccines yesterday. My poor fellow cried, but it didn't last too long. I've gotten smart at these appts and always have a toy ready to distract him.

I've decided to switch pediatricians. There have been a few things over the six months that have bothered me. Each one is something small, but when you add them up they're reason enough for me to leave. A few friends gave me the name of another doctor they love. Not only do they say he's great with their kids, but apparently he's a hottie. Like hot enough that one friend's DH insists on going to the appts with her. LOL.

And more big new...we've booked a trip to Texas next month! We're going to see Happy Hour Katie, her mom Patty and Fertile Rambler Kristin. I'm bringing EJ and my Mom is coming along too. I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And here is a daily dose of EJ cuteness that this proud mommy wants to share :)

He has gotten so big! I didn't think he could get cuter, but I think that's happening too. :)

I *cannot wait* to see you all in a just a few weeks!

Sounds like a great appointment - but I am glad you are moving on to another doctor.

He looks gorgeous.
