We had two doctors appointments this past week. We had our 6 month check-up with our pediatrician in Dothan. It went well. Sam is now eating cereal in his fruits in the morning and at night with veggies at lunch. :) He is getting big!! He weighed 14 lbs 6 oz and was 23" long. He did have to get some shots and he DID NOT like that a bit. We will not go back again until our 9 month appointment.
On Friday we went to Montgomery for the developmental appointment. After waiting for 3 hours to be seen, Sam was asleep and not real interested in "playing" with the toys they had to assess him with. The examiner explained to us that they expected him to be the developmental level of a 4 month old (this was determined by my due date). We were told that Sam tested on a 5 month old level! We were thrilled that they dismissed us and we do not have to return to Montgomery for anymore appointments at this time. Praise the Lord!!
Our next big appointment is in December when he goes to the pediatric opthamologist. We are continuing to be amazed at how wonderful and powerful our God is and we are still praying that the Lord will continue to protect Sam from sickness and allow him to develop properly.
Sam has rolled over and is very strong. He likes to stand up and try to sit up on his own. He will sit up for several seconds alone. He is smiling and laughing and talking a lot and we are loving every second of it!
