CHRISTMAS!!! – BEST GIFT EVER! Presents to Mommy and Daddy

Santa

Marco took pictures with Santa this weekend! He was more confused than anything by it, but he didn’t mind too much. 🙂 He made sure to tell Santa he’d been a very good boy this year.

Measure me!

Marco was such a CHAMP today at his appointment! He had 3 shots and 1 liquid vaccination (including his flu shot! he’s all set for the winter :D), and he only cried right before the shots, when the nurse held onto his legs in order to administer the shots. Brave boy. 🙂

His measurements:

Head Circumference: 16 1/2 inches (25th percentile)
Weight: 14 lbs, 10.5 oz (10th percentile)
Height: 27 1/4″ (75th percentile)

They weren’t concerned about his weight gain (or lack thereof), but I am, so they recommended giving him some Iron supplements in his bottles. It might help to make sure he’s growing at the proper rate. He seems so tiny! He has to go back next month for the 2nd part of his flu shot, so his doctor is going to check his weight and height again, to make sure he’s hitting his growth spurts.

Here’s some more cute pics!

Marco has started to grab books out of my hands when I am reading him stories, and it’s the cutest thing to see him looking at the books – even though he doesn’t even understand the concept! Half the time he tries to put the pages into his mouth, LOL!

Marco is now 6 months old! I can’t believe how fast time flies when you’re losing sleep, having your clothes covered in spit-up, and your hair pulled by tiny little fists.

He has his check-up today with the pediatrician, so we’ll see what his measurements are later! 😀

In the meantime, enjoy the pics:
