Six Month Check Up

Tanner had his six month check up today. We didn't learn anything we don't already know. He is strong, healthy and big! He is still spitting up so we will continuing giving him medicine. It does help somewhat. Tanner weighed in at 21 pounds 3 ounces putting him in the 90% for his weight. However, he has hardly grown longer in the past two months. He didn't even grow a 1/2 inch! He is only 26 inches long putting him in the 30% for his height (he was in the 75% at his last check up). As a result he is looking quite chunky, but still as cute as ever. I predict that in the next three months he will do a lot of growing longer and not much gaining weight. This is my hope anyway! I have a hard time packing around babies when they are over 20 pounds! Tanner had to have shots today. :( Never fun, but he didn't cry much when he was poked so hopefully it won't bother him too much. We shall see!

Oh no! The Porter genes are kicking in. Growing out but not up. He's a little too young to start that isn't he?

Yeah, I kept forgetting to email you and tell you I had a blog until after I shut my computer down. I check your blog obsessively every day and I was telling Mandy that she needed to start one too. So I told her if she would do it then I would jump on mine again. (As you saw, the first post was from 2 years ago.)

Anyway, of course you can totally link to my blog!

Thee is nothing sweeter than watching a baby sleep! I used to go in and just sit and watch mine when they were little.
