Aaron at Six Months

Aaron had his six-month-old checkup today.

[li]Height: 27 inches (up from 21 inches at birth)[/li][li]Weight: 19 lbs., 11 oz. (from 7 lbs., 11 oz)[/li][li]Head Circumference: 17 1/4 inches (I don’t remember what it was at birth, but he’s grown)[/li][/ul]

In short, an above-average kid with a normal head. He also got his shots, too. He turned beet-purple and screamed, but got over it quickly.

And, yesterday, he started flipping over like a pancake! He turned from his back to his tummy and back again, without using leverage, which he had been doing. He also giggled as he was doing it.

He’s taking solids like a champ. He knows what a spoon is for, and loves fruits and the sweeter vegetables. The jury’s still out on peas, though, but he’s only had them once.

My little baby’s growing up!



Very nice. Just wait until he starts turning your water to blood and bringing frogs all over the place… :smiley:

In any event, congratulations. Enjoy this phase, because before you turn your back, he’s going to be going to school.

Ah, but before he’s in school comes the phase where you can’t turn your back because walking and climbing are fully operational and common sense has yet to start developing.

Congratulations, MsRobyn.

Shuckins…I was hoping for photos. We want photos! We want photos!

Hopefully, we’ll get some photos from BirthdayDope this weekend that I can post (or at least link to).

He is certainly a cute little bugger, if I do say so myself. :slight_smile:


And anyone who’s seen him in the last six months can attest to, as well. :slight_smile:

Wow. I remember those days, waiting until BabyMaeve™ could crawl…then wanting anxiously for her to walk.

What a fucking idiot I was. :smiley:

Conga-rats on his continued cuteness. I think Jonathan Chance has the “second cutest doper baby” sewn up…so you have a good shot at third place. :stuck_out_tongue:

Wow, six months already? Seems like it was just back in August when you gave birth!! :wink:

Congratulations…and wait for the first morning when he climbs out of the crib…

Nah, Aaron’s the Cutest Doper Baby in the Under 12 Months category. Y’all can have the Over 12 Months category. :smiley:


Fair enough :wink:

In the meantime,while we’re waiting on updated Aaron pics…I hope I’m not hijacking your thread too much if I post this.

We had started her bath water, and then went to make the bed. Apparently she was eager to take her bath. :stuck_out_tongue:

This thread really scared me at first. I thought somebody was talking about my sixth-month anniversary with my current girlfriend.
But now that I see we’re speaking of another smaller and younger Aaron, let me just congratulate the parents on choosing a name that guarantees high intelligence and irresistible boyish charm (and apparently a little concietedness). :smiley:

See, beagledave, what you have there is an innovative thinker! (And a darn cute one, too.) She’s thinking, “Hm, they take the clothes off me and put them in the clothes washer, then they dry them, and they put me in the bathtub and wash me, then they dry me…There must be a more efficient way to do this!”

Play along. Soap her up and toss her in the dryer! :smiley:

And to MsRobyn: Have a camera handy when you introduce the little one to strained meats. Trust me on this one. Words will be inadequate to describe the faces he’s going to make. Unless you’re raising him vegetarian, in which case you’re just going to have to be satisfied with the spinach and broccoli faces, which aren’t nearly as funny.

beagledave, that’s adorable!!!

And funny as hell, too.

What a beautiful family y’all are :slight_smile:
