6 Month Check Up

We had Cameron's 6 month check up yesterday. Everything went A-OK. Our doctor asked about his ears and our recent ENT appointment. She said I made the right decision on insisting he gets the tubes now rather than wait it out. I would much rather take the advice of someone who sees him every few weeks for at least 20 minutes than someone who spent a total of 3 minutes with him since birth. Reassures me I am making the right choice.

We talked a few minutes about trying to let him cry it out again. She suggested we wait until after tubes, which was what we were planning on doing in the first place. Little guy was a champ last night only really waking up twice. That's awesome for him. Of course he did get shots so he could have been a little worn out. Cooper was too cute when he was getting his shots, he kept rubbing his head saying, "it's okay Cameron, bubba here".

One small concern is his growth. He has always been in the 50th %. Now he is in the 20th, he is 15lbs 14 oz, and 26 inches. He is now almost the exact same size as Cooper when he was 6 months. Could be due to all the illnesses these past few months or he could just end up being small like his brother.

Here's to another (hopefully) three month before we go back.

Sounds like you made a good decision, mom! I wouldn't worry about his size, you're probably right about his sicknesses!
