Skinny Little Stinker!

Kelty had his 6 months appointment today (yes, even though he is 7 months now). The appointment went well; he had 3 shots and an oral vaccine. He didn't care for the oral vaccine ... he grimaced and twitched ... it was actually pretty funny. He didn't cry when they pricked him for his little blood sample, he was rather curious actually and just watched while the nurse pricked his toe and squeezed out a little sample. His height and weight gain has slowed down but the doc didn't seem too concerned but did encourage us to feed him solids 3 times per day instead of 2 and really encourage Kelty to nurse from both sides each time he nurses. He weighed in at 15 lbs 13 oz and measured 27.5 inches long. Our baby scale at home must be off because we weighed him at over 17 lbs last week. Kelty now falls in the 64th percentile for height but only 8th percentile for weight. I guess he has mom's chunky thighs but daddy's slender build.

We've decided it's time to take the bumper out of Kelty's crib ... he just a little too mobile now. Here is a pic of Kelty pulling down his bumper to look at me after his nap today.

Bye-bye bumper!

Sitting up and playing ... what a big boy!

Kelty in his doorway jumper ... he's still trying to figure this one out but has fun trying!

This is a little game Kelty and I play ... I call it "Run and a Jump Jump!". I set up a little obstacle course for Mr. Calimari and make him jump around ... Kelty LOVES it! I took this video while we were still at Altus ... it's about 2 1/2 weeks old but it was worth posting!
