Half a Year!
Here are his stats from his 6 month check up:
I don't remember his height and they didn't write it up like they usually do, but his weight was 13 lbs 6 oz. Yep, he's a little one. He actually has dropped off the charts which concerns my Dr. a little. Now many of you know that I just make little babies, but Jesse didn't fall off the charts until he was 18 months. The others stayed between 25-50 percentile until they were one. He also dropped a little in his height. He was running around the 50th percentile and has dropped to the 25th. I compare him a lot to Jess because James is his little clone. I just looked it up and Jess was 16 lbs 6 oz at 6 months...yikes that's a whole 3 pound difference. Anyway, at his appt., his dr wasn't quite sure what to do with him. On the one hand, he is happy, he looks healthy (no skin and bones), etc, but on the other, he is so stinkin' tiny. So, she had us go for a blood test just to make sure that he doesn't have any thyroid or metabolic disorders. We should get the results in a few days. I'll keep you posted. Well, at least Jesse won't be the smallest in the family!
I think his smallness only adds to his cuteness...I just hope that he is healthy.
