Six month pediatrician visit

Ian weighs 15.2 pounds and is 26 inches long, which puts him at the 15% for both. He's a little guy, but he's growing well. The doctor did not seem concerned with his size. We're going to start feeding 3 solid meals a day, which Ian will enjoy. Before he was getting only 1 solid meal. He can start eating pretty much any solid food, including teething biscuits, with the exception of chocolate, strawberries, eggs, and honey. I'm looking forward to seeing his reaction to the new tastes. He already likes everything to he's eaten, except green beans, so I'm sure he'll be excited.

We knew Ian was teething because he's been such a drooling machine. However, we had not seen any teeth until yesterday. When he was crying after being poked, he opened his mouth enough to see 2 little white lines just below the gums. The white was visible, but the teeth have yet to break the skin. Soon though...very soon.

That's funny, green beans are the only vegtable DJ would eat when he was a baby. Hopefully Ian is going to take after his Mama.

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to let you know we're still checking in on your little cutie pie! Congratulations on a successful surgery and recovery! I know it's still a while away, but sorry I won't have any advice for the palate surgery. We'll be praying and thinking about Ian though!
