Joseph at 6 months and 21 days old

Today we went to the doctors for Joseph 6 month check up. He weight 18.03 pounds, at the 46.25%tile, his head circumference was 17.5 inches at the 58.65%tile, and he is 28.6 inches tall and in the 93.98%tile. They had to measure him three times to get his length. The first girl did it twice two different numbers both times, she got how tall he was last time and then the second time he was shorter than the first time. (She was new and had to call in for back up) The second lady got it the first time she did it. Much better.

Joseph loves to sit up. He can get where he wants to go kinda, he scoots backwards. When he is sitting on his bum he can move around. He is growing up so fast!! He gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth alot. It is only a matter of time before he learns how to crawl forward.

He is eating some foods at night when we give him the probiotics which have helped alot. He likes to sit in his highchair and eat some crackers when we are having dinner. It makes him happy to eat regular food.

When I nurse him he loves to hold his foot, it must be a comfort thing. He also likes to chew on his feet when he is sitting. It looks pretty funny when he is eating his toes. He loves to put stuff in his mouth!

Joseph loves to make noises. He is learning how to use his voice. He loves to smile. He is a very happy baby!!

Joseph has 2 bottom teeth! They hurt when he bits, he loves to bit your figure if you are not paying attention and he can get your hand in his mouth. He has started to take his pacifier again, which has been very nice!! He likes to be able to put it in and take it out whenever he wants.
We love him tons!!!

I thought Emme was catching up to him, but apparently not, lol! He is definitely a cutie and I'm glad he's been feeling better!!! By the way, I think you are amazing for taking all 4 kids to his appointment. Seriously, next time I'll watch the rest of the crew if you want! :-)
