6 month check-up!

Peyton had his 6 month check-up today and I guess the biggest news that we got from it is that he is a SKINNY boy! He's dropped a bit in percentiles for weight again due to his extreme level of activity. He weighed 15 lbs 11 ounces today and is 27 inches long. He's currently in the 1% for height to weight range. Skinny, skinny boy. We're going to try to incorporate a little bit of formula into his routine to keep his weight up. The Dr. said not to worry - we don't need to make any drastic changes, we just need to make sure that he's getting as many calories as he can get.

He got 4 immunizations today (poor guy!) b/c we decided to go ahead and get him a flu shot. They still don't have any H1N1 vaccines for infants, so we just got the seasonal flu vaccine. He has to go back in 4 weeks for the second half of his flu shot. He's currently taking a nap on his side b/c it's too uncomfortable for him to sleep on his tummy like he usually does. He's not due back for a check-up until he's 9 months old, so at least we get to sneak an extra month in before he has to get immunized again.
