6 month check-up

Travis had his 6-month check-up on Tuesday.  Time is going WAY too fast.  His stats are as follows:

Weight: 20 lbs, 1 oz. (88%)
Height: 28.25 in. (96%)

He's a BIG BOY!!  I love that he's so big.  I love the little rolls on his arms, legs and belly.  They are just delicious.  The doctor checked him out and said that he is a healthy little boy and that we're doing a good job. That made me feel good.  I'm trying to be the best mom I can be and it's good to know that something I'm doing is working!!  After I asked like 20 questions (Eric thinks I'm crazy, haha!) Travis got his 6-month shots.  They didn't go as smoothly as the previous two visits, but I think he was a little tired and hungry by the end.  He screamed when he got pricked and then kept crying until I picked him up and then a little after that.  He calmed down soon after but I haven't heard him scream like that in a long time.  Poor baby.  He now has little bruises on his legs where the shots were.  Sad.  One funny thing is that later that night when I went to give him a bath I took off his band-aids and noticed that one of them was TAZ!  This is funny because his initials are TAZ and before he was born we said we would call him TAZ.  We only call him that every once in awhile, but we thought the band-aid was perfect for little man.

His next appointment is in June, and there won't be any shots at that one.  Yay!!

I love my growing boy.
