Ethan had his 6-month checkup yesterday and his head measured large, so they are sending us for an ultrasound next week. It's not even off the charts, just 75th percentile. Urg. I am so, So, SO tired of all the scary sh*t doctors have put on us for no reason.

First "there must have been a reason" he came early (so put him through a million and one tests to find NOTHING).

Then (while we are still in the NICU), "he probably has down syndrome" (because some quack of a doctor thought his ears looked too small...uuh he was PREMATURE.. his cartilige hadn't developed 100% -- They are PERFECTLY NORMAL ears, even a little big like DH! )

Now "his head is too big." Seriously? He's perfect and WAS born a month early so he's catching up! AND DH is 6'3 and has a rather large head himself.

Sigh. I'm just hoping it's nothing like everything else has been.

On a happier note, he's eating and loving everything we've given him since we've properly started solids. Oatmeal, bananas, apples, sweet potato, cantaloupe (and that weeee bit of chocolate!). Dr. said we need to get him trying some less sweet stuff, so I got some broccoli to steam up for tonight. I've been trying to get avocado for him for a couple weeks and every one has been rotten that I've cut into! So annoying! Must be a rough season for avocados right now.

My son loves food so much he's gained almost two pounds in a month (hes on the small side so its a good thing!) He absolutely loves guacamole! It's hilarious to watch him eat! We are up to feeding him a decent portion of solids three times a day. With his appetite, he will catch up in no time!

Lil one loves rolling now, and has just started rolling back the other way.
She is eating 3 times a day as well, she just loooves food. She has slowed down alot on the formula but making sure she still gets enough because she is only 5 months old.. actually 5 months today! I cant believe how fast the time is going..

Ethan has been blowing raspberries the past couple weeks and getting really into lately. It's even MORE fun when he has food in his mouth. Haha I've also veered away from the BLW approach and have started him on some homemade purees because he's a little on the skinny side and he just loves eating, but was getting frustrated because he couldn't figure out how to do it himself. I felt so bad for him that I just started feeding him with my finger and/or a little spoon and it made him SO happy I couldn't stop.

Doyle can fully sit up now, and he is working on crawling, he still doesnt understand you don't use your head to crawl. He is talking up a storm and is taking backward steps in his walker.
