Quick Thane update

Thane’s 6 month checkup was on Wednesday. He passed with flying colors. Two important things. First, the stats:

Height: 27 inches (65th percentile)
Weight: 17lbs 13 oz (50th percentile) (Editor’s note: This increases by roughly a pound per minute when carrying in his carseat)
Head circumference: 17.25 inches (50th percentile)

So he’s right on average for his age — a little tall.

Second, he is supposed to now get real food that he’s allowed to feed himself. Sniff sniff. MY BABY! He is too wee for real food! He has no teeth! And he’s my BABY! He’s not allowed to do this “growing up” stuff!

Also, apparently now is the age to start applying discipline, with limits, etc. I hadn’t realized how much I liked the innocence of a child who couldn’t be expected to know better.
