Gabe's 6 Month Checkup

Well, the good news is Gabe doesn't have a large head for his body. The nurse from two months ago must have measured his head circumference wrong, either that or his head shrunk!

His stats for today are:

Height: 24 1/2 inches (less than 5%)
Weight: 18 Pounds 5 oz (50-75%)
Head: 16 1/2 (10-25%)

I might introduce rice cereal to Gabe this week just for some fun. He doesn't seem to need it, but the doctor really wanted me to start. We'll see how it goes!

To compare the boys, at 6 months Drew was weighing almost 15 pounds, Gabe is 3 1/2 pounds heavier than his brother when comparing them at 6 months. Physically they are both doing the same things (rolling, smiling, grabbing, babbling) and maintaining the similar sleep schedules. Boy my boys require lots of sleep in order to play hard and keep joyful hearts!
