6 months and shrinking??

Okay, not really. However, I was completely surprised when we found out today that Henry has LOST 5 ounces since his 4 month appointment! WHAT?!?!? Here's his stats:

Height: 29 1/2 inches (off the charts)
Weight: 19 lbs 13 oz (85th percentile)

Our pediatrician said the weight loss is probably b/c of us dropping one of his feedings after his 4 month appt and also that he's had two colds since then. He wasn't worried at all, since Henry is obviously not starving and will start eating veggies and fruits now. Everything else was totally normal and Henry is doing great! It was cute - Dr. asked if Henry was babbling to us at all and Henry promptly answered him for about 5 minutes, adding lots of bubbles and drool to his words. =) Shots were a treat, as always, but he gets over it pretty quick.

I can't believe our baby boy is 6 months old! Time certainly does fly with babies (in the grand picture). Every day when we go in to get Henry up in the morning, we are greeted with the biggest smiles and most adorable sounds the human ear can hear. Not a day goes by that we don't remember how very blessed we surely are.

He is so beautiful, I mean Handsome.(: Such a big boy and I know what you mean about the morning smiles. Sam and I love to go in to his room together so we can both be greeted in such a way. I tell you, it beats an alarm clock any day. Have fun with the fruits and veggies, it's so fun to see them try new things. And if Henry is like Natie... he'll devour it all.
Hope to see you guys soon,

His fingers look like Vienna Sausages. No wonder he likes to chew no them.
