We are still trying to get The Bug to eat food. Last night he seemed to enjoy Peas! Tonight he will probably close his mouth and turn his head. With the peas he didn't make his normal horrible face. The boy might be odd and like his veggies.
He had his 6 month check up yesterday. He's still 50% for weight and 75% for height. He had the last round of shots until he's 1. Then we have to decide how we want to handle the Measle and Mump shot. We are thinking of going to a homeopath. They will give the shots separately where as the doc won't. They say the risk of Autism is less if the shots are given separately. Still researching it.
All was good. He is progressing as he should be. He has been feeling a little punky the last couple of days. Spitting up more than normal. We think he's fighting a little bug. The doc asked if we wanted to wait on the shots, but since he has had these before and didn't have a problem we figured we would get them out of the way. All seems good- no fever. We gave him tylenol before the shots and later last night.
He is still waking up once in the middle of night for a feeding. The doc is thinking he should be moving away from this. It's hard for me not to feed him when it's been 6 or so hours since he ate last. This is probably more something I need to work on than him. This morning he woke up around 4 and since I don't have to be to work this morning I gave him his pacifier and he slept for another 45 minutes.
Baby steps, Baby steps.
