Compare to Sister’s Blog: Month 6: Crawl
8/14 Day 173 T: Wow, he peed so much last night. I think I did eight change outs. We missed a morning poop right out of the gate too. We got an appointment today and sure enough I was right. He is healthy, meeeting milestones, is perfectly average, grew an inch, and weighs 16.2 pounds with a 43cm head. Shocker! Hah. He also decided to not have phlegm when the doctor listened so…that was that. I had him get the DTaP and only that. I think it is a crock of cow pie that insurance won’t pay for the thimerisol free vaccine. Bastards. I still haven’t been able to get Itty Bitty’s records transferred. She likes to play with the toys in the office, but I’m not sure it is a good fit for her and I get the feeling that if she were the one being examined she wouldn’t be cooperative. He’s not a particularly warm personality. Our family practitioner who retired was more friendly. I’d like to find a Family Doctor again, but it seems like no one is taking new patients and it is hard to find someone who accepts alternative vaccine schedules. I miss our family doctor. He treated me like an intelligent human being and trusted my judgment and kept his nose out of parenting matters.
We had a good morning of catches, but he was a bit exhausted in the afternoon and I missed a few pees as I was trying to blog. He seemed a bit warm to me but when I was at work Daddy Man said he perked up and was scooting everywhere. Daddy Man got a nice big wee in the sink. I also discovered why Mini Moose makes googly happy faces at me if I pee him in the sink. It is a game he and Daddy Man play. Mini Moose has the most infectious smile. We make happy babies!
