Today was our sixth month check up at Dr Van de loo's office. The kids seemed excited to go on a trip in the car...little did they know where they were going! Mommy had planned it so all three had been fed and napped, except for their appointment took us over 1 1/2 hours! Everyone was very crabby and extremely tired by the time all was said and done.
Addison was first to get weighed and examined. We recently realized she's getting "stranger anxiety" and of course there was no exception with the nurse or doctor. She cried throughout most of her one-on-one time. To make it worse, when she cried, Jordan felt bad and had a nervous look on his face until he finally broke down and cried too. Remember- this was all just during the usual check up...we hadn't even seen or discussed their three shots yet! Luckily- Jack wasn't fazed at all by any of it. Infact- during his hip check he actually chuckled at Dr Van de loo.
Here's their stats for 6 months old:
Jack- 15lb 10oz L- 25.79"
Jordan- 15lb 10oz L- 25"
Addison- 15lb 4oz L- 25"
This was the first appointment we were given percentiles to compare them to other 6 month olds. We found out they are definitely on the small side! Addison was in the 23rd percentile for her length and 35th for her weight. Jack was in the 15th percentile for weight and 25th for height. Jordan was 10th percentile for weight and 8th percentile forh is length.
