Billy just had his 6 month well baby exam yesterday and just came down with his first cold also. :( Anyway I Was very happy to see that he went from the 2% all the way to the 25% for both his height and weight! 16 lbs. 1 oz., and 25.25 inches! Then I looked at some of the 4 month stats and saw that many of them were larger than Billy now! Wow, I was surprised, he seems so huge to me, maybe because he started at 5 lbs. 14 oz. He's finally catching up. Anyone else have a six month check yet?

Nicholas had his 6 month yesterday (was late due to the holidays)

He is now 15lbs 14 oz - I swear he feels alot heavier and I was shocked he only gained 2 lbs - about 25% for weight

he is 26 1/2 inches - about 50% for height

I guess my girls were much bigger by this time as he hasn't even doubled his birth weight which would be 16pbs10oz. The dr is not concerned as he he said a pound a month is normal and Nicholas eats like a pig. He wants me to start adding meats to his diet along with all the fruits and veggies.

Oh my! My boys didn't reach 20 pounds until after they were a year old!

I'm so nervous about Charlotte's 6 month appointment. (Not scheduled yet) She was 11 pounds at her 4 month appointment and the 1st percentile. The doctor wasn't too concerned, but I would like to see a nice big gain this time.

Ashley had her 6 month check-up today.

Weight: 14lbs 2oz

Length: 24 5/8 inches

Doctor wasn't concerned about her weight because apparently she stayed on the same curve as the last appointment (though at the last appointment she dropped a curve).

Bruce's 6-month appointment is scheduled for the 14th. We got off schedule a bit because of picking a new doctor. Our home scale says he is about 18 lbs or so. I know what you mean about how big Billy seems. Bruce was 4 lbs 14 ozs at birth, wearing premie diapers and premie clothes. I can't believe how big he is now!!

I haven't scheduled Jenna's 6 month appointment yet, but we have to wait until after the 11th because of having to have a certain number of days between shots.

Jenna also just came down with her first cold and thrush. When she was weighed at the doctor visit for that she was just 14 pounds, so it sounds like you Billy truly is catching up. We just have the peanuts of the bunch.
