Can you believe it? Evan is 6 months old! We visited our new doctor yesterday for his wellness appointment. We found out that our lil' man is in the 98% overall for his age. He is 27 1/4 inches long (76%). He weighs 16.2 pounds (24%); and his head is 45 1/4 cm around (85%). That said he is long and strong just like his Daddy.
Dr. Davey was wonderful and immediately made friends with Evan. We are starting to eat cereal and He gave us a meal plan to start working on. He thinks that Evan is just Lactose intolerant and suggested that I start bringing back whey, casein, and soy into my diet. If Evan tolerates those we can play around with slowly bringing back dairy-YAY. Dr. Davey even thought Evan might grow out of it by his 9 month appointment. That would just be awesome!
We were all smiles until nurse Judy started with the shots! Evan was cooing and smiling and then all of a sudden got a very serious look on his face and the seriousness turned into a painful cry. My poor baby! But soon he was back to smiling. He has 4 marks where the needles went it, 2 which have bruises. He's also ran a low grade fever and was very lovey this morning-I love that.

So our little boy is Six months old. He is constantly smiling. Rolling over. Pushing himself up when he's on his tummy. Reaching for toys. Eating cereal. He is a lean machine. Mama and Daddy love you so much Evan. You are our precious gift from Jesus!
