6 month check-up

Yesterday we went to see the pediatrician for Ian's 6 month check-up. As you can see, he is a growing, healthy boy. He weighed 20 lbs 8 oz (90th percentile) and is 28 inches long (95th percentile). He received 4 vaccinations and a flu shot, so his little legs were bothering him yesterday and today. The funny thing was, that he cried more when the nurse was holding his legs still than when he was actually getting his shots. As soon as she was finished and let his legs go, he stopped crying. He was needing lots of cuddling and Mommy-time today, and I'm sure he'll be feeling better tomorrow or the next day. I gave him a sippy cup for the first time yesterday with some water in it, and he held onto it and put it right in his mouth like he's been drinking from a sippy cup since the day he was born. He mostly let the water drool down his chin, but today he was actually drinking more than he was drooling out of his mouth. Sitting in the stroller after going to get the mail.
First time with a sippy cup.

Ian is growing up so fast! I can't believe he is already 6 months old and using a sippy cup! I was eating at Cafe J's this week and really missed you. I need to plan a trip to visit ASAP! When do you think Ian will be ready for a girls trip? :)

Aww, how cute of him holding his sippy cup. That is so amazing that he can already drink from a cup!
