6 month check up

Yesterday I took Pearson to the doctor for his 6 month well check-up.  
Since our appointment was at 8:30am Matt was able to go with us and just go into work a little late! 
Our big healthy boy checked up perfectly.  He's hit all his milestones and is growing right on his growth chart.  
 He weighed 16 pounds 14.5 ounces (50th percentile).  He was 27 1/2 inches long (75th percentile).  And his head circumference was 44 1/2 centimeters (25th percentile). 
While we were waiting for the doctor to come in, he couldn't keep his hands off the paper.   
He tore it to shreds and even got a little taste of it!!   
 Pearson had to get 3 shots and one oral vaccination.  He cried pretty hard after his shots. 
 It just breaks my heart to see him cry.  I'm glad Matt was there to help comfort him.  
We go back to the doctor in 4 weeks for a flu shot booster, then our next appointment isn't until he is 9 months old.  Thankfully there are no shots at that appointment!!

What a cute little guy! Those shots aren't any fun though :(

Glad to hear there is actually a well check up appointment that doesn't involve vaccinations. :) It makes me sad to see my little guy cry too.

Naomi still tears at the paper too. We had a vaccination (in addition to her flu shot) at her 9 month appointment, mmm... wonder what's different.

Katy, he is just SO precious!! I didn't think it was possible for him to keep getting cuter, but he does! Glad to hear everything looked good at the doctor's office. :)
