Robert had his 6 month well-baby check today. He's weighing in at about 17 pounds (we were having major scale problems - the regular baby scale said he was 15 lbs 12 ounces - less than at 4 months - so we did the weigh me/weigh him with me thing. I successfully carried a naked baby in and out of the exam room without getting peed on!) and 26 inches long. He's right on the mean for weight and just below for length. We never got around to getting a head circumference, but I'll do that later tonight myself. (17.75" on 8/18/05)

We talked about his ankle eczema (normal once babies develope little chub-rolls like he has... and we can keep using the aquaphore on it) and his hivey day (no idea, just be careful... and he will most likely remain sensitive because he's a redhead).

Otherwise, great appointment and we don't have to go back until 9 months (the day after my birthday, actually).
