Yesterday the boys both had doctor visits. Mason got his ears re-checked from his ear infections last month
and River had his 6 month well baby check-up!Both boys are doing great. Mason's statistics have not changed since the last visit but here are River's offical 6 month stats:
Height 25 1/2 inches (10- 25%)
Weight 15 lbs 7 oz (10-25%)
Head Circumference 42.5 cm (10-25%)
Dr. Spiegel is very happy with River's growth and development. We have the green light to increase solid food feedings to twice a day. (still stage one until 7months) He also said to start baby proofing the house because River is going to be more typical boy and just get into everything....unlike Mason that was more cautious. We will see if he is right.....as of now that is pretty spot on! River got two vaccines and one oral one. No major reactions. Just a low grade fever and a bit more fussy. We also got the go ahead that both are fine to go to Mexico to celebrate Uncle Jonathan getting married at the end of the month. Mason's ears are clear and back to normal as well!
It has been in the 90s here all week so after the doctor we headed to Rattlesnake Lake.
The water level is still very low due to the very little snow we got this past winter AND the mild drought we are currently in!
We watched THREE bald eagles dive for fish around the lake. To me it is amazing to watch them so closely in the wild. Truly breath taking! (they are not in this picture!)
Today we went to the zoo.......
And I took this picture........
Where did our baby go?!?!
