Joshua’s 6 month well-baby check up was today.
His head circumference is 17 3/4 centimeters–75th percentile.
He weighs 18 lbs, 14.7 oz.–75th percentile.
He is 29 inches tall!!! —he’s off the freaking growth chart for height.
I don’t know where he gets it. Dan isn’t short by any means, and from what I hear Dan’s mom’s family members are unusually tall for Asians.
At any rate, it might be time for me to get interested in basketball.
We’re also supposed to start trying to work harder at getting him to fall asleep on his own. This means a probable change in our bedtime routine. I’m thinking we’ve got to switch up when he gets his bottle so that he doesn’t get it right before bed, but I’m not sure. We’re also supposed to let him fuss for up to 20 minutes before going in to him. And when we go in to him, we’re not supposed to pick him up. We’re only supposed to pat his butt and/or rub his back. And we’re supposed to stay in there for less than a minute.
I’m not sure how well this is going to work. I might need more than just Celexa and Sauvignon Blanc to make it through the next few days.
Y’all pray for me, mmkay?
