6 month checkup

Mac had his 6 month doctor's appointment the other day.  He officially weighed in at 17 lbs 11 oz and measured 27 inches.

The (new) doctor said that he's roughly in the 50th percentile for weight and the 75th for height.

Thank goodness--after that scary 4 month apointment it was amazing to know that he's made up for lost time.

And, yep, we got a new pediatrician.  After feeling like my original pediatrician wasn't concerned or responding to my concerns about Mac's lack of weight gain, David and I decided to change.  For me, it was more of a relationship and trust issue that medical skill...because, honestly, I have no idea how to evaluate if a pediatrician is a good medical professional.  I can, however, tell you if they make me feel heard.

Anyway, moving on.  I really like my new guy.  He came very highly recommended by some co-workers.  Mac seemed to like him, until it was time for shots.

Then Mac turned into a hot mess.

At least there aren't any more shots until Mac's 12 months.

  1. Really? B got shots AND follow shots in January for his 6 months and we have to go back on the 24th of this month for a follow up flu shot? Maybe they don't have to get the flu shot, I just said ok with whatever they said :(
