Teagan 6 months

It is time to do both a 6 month and 7 month update on my baby boy but I will do them one at a time. Teagan was 6 month on the 24th of May. Too long ago. I'm not doing to well on catching up, but I will get there. I think once I am caught up, I won't feel so hopeless.

Teagan's 6 month appointment with the Dr. was an absolute disaster. I took him in a few days before his actual appointment because he had a weird rash and wasn't feeling too good. Hayden and him were both schedule for an appointment the next week I believe. Since it was supposedly just a sick visit, the nurse told me we only needed a "close" weight. She was going to weigh him in clothes and a diaper. I told her I would like a more accurate weight so I at least changed the wet diaper. Let's just say that after three different weghts, I am still not quite sure what he weighed exactly. I am pretty sure it was around 16.8. The reasoning behind the different weights, After that nurse weighed him and I had a visit with the doctor, she decided to just go ahead and do his 6 months since we don't have that thing called insurance. So, when yet another nurse came by to weigh him properly, of course, it was different. I was okay with that seeing that she did it the right way. The problem then, it was recorded at a completely different weight than either of the numbers I had seen on the scale. Incompetent!

The height, not much better! The first nurse stuck the pencil about 3 inches behind his head. I was thinking, "hmm, cutting off 3 inches off the top of his head makes a lot of sense!" Not! When his real nurse came in and told me he had shrunk since his 4 month appointment I said, "no kidding, the nurse before measured him rather oddly!" That was fixed. He was about 26 1/2 inches long. I thought he would be taller. Hayden had grown out of the baby carseat by that age due to height. He still had a couple inches to go.

He got some shots and after had waiting about 1 1/2 hours to see the doctor, having multiple measurings and weighings, all while being shoved in a very small room (with only so many painted on animals you can talk about) with a toddler who was bored stiff and extremely talkative, we were finally out of there. It was a terrible visit. I do still love my pediatrician. Just not waiting forever after your scheduled appointment and seeing the other incompetent nurses! Side note, Teagan hardly cries when he gets shots. So sweet. Makes me less on the verge of tears.

Teag is still sitting up, rolling (not often), say's momma and dadda, eating rice cereal, etc. Here are some of Teagan's 6 month pictures.

Those eyes are still striking to me. I love how he sucks on his botton lip. It is actually red and chapped most of the time now.
Loves gnawing on his fingers.

He is amused by grass. Hayden would lift all limbs off the grass when he was on it. Teagan, on the other hand, loves it and if you put him on a blanket, he will reach and pull the blanket aside until he can rip out a handful. He has even been caught tasting it a few times.
This picture is a little blurry. It wasn't meant to be a picture of just him but because he was the only decent one in the picture and had such a sweet pose going for him, I cropped it and kept it!I can't believe how fast he is growing up. After having your first, you realize how fast the time flies. Although I try and enjoy every moment, life still happens and time still goes on. It hasn't slowed down even a bit. I love being a mom!
