Yesterday was Ryder's 6 month vaccines and wellness check. It all went exceedingly well. His weight is now at 15lbs, 10oz, length is 26 inches. He was born in 3rd percentile, last wellness check was in the 10th and is now in the 25th! Yay baby!!! They also said he is ahead in his basic motor skills...he can sit up without support, stand holding onto something and is rolling over both ways. He is also starting to crawl, although only for a second or two before it turns into tummy time..lol. He is super strong. He also babbles non stop...lol, gets that from his mommy I think. Overall he was pronounced healthy and doing well.
The vaccines went well as well. He let out a little scream, but calmed down and was all smiles within a minute or two. A few hours later he was super cranky and interested in nothing but being held and rocked, which we were happy to do. We just sat quietly in his rocking chair and read books. He was up a little later then his normal bedtime, but then gave us 8 hours!! Those nights are still infrequent, so always a pleasant surprise. Today he is his normal playful happy self, so obviously no long lasting affects.
It still boggles my mind how much they change in 6 months. It's really hard to believe that this healthy strong little guy was only 4lbs 14oz and had to stay in NICU for 5 days after his birth. He is so chubby, smiley and happy and I just love every second of being his mommy. Every day is something new and exciting.
