Tayden's 6 month Check Up.

So I took Tayden in for his appointment today. My worries about his weight were confirmed....he hadn't even gain a pound since his 4 month appointment. Ahh....I feel so bad. He was 16 lbs 12 ounces and 26 3/4 inches....which means he only grew a little over an inch also. He went from the 75-90% for height and weight to the 45%. So now the dr. says that I have to give him formula every time I nurse him, and now that I will be feeding him real food to give him some seriously fatty stuff....butter, whole milk products, alvacados.....you name it....fatten that boy up. So I hope I didn't stunt my poor little guys growth. On a good note....he only has a cold. No ear infections or sinus infections so that is good. Some of the things Tayden is doing now are, he is sitting up on his own. He talks and babbles to himself all the time. He likes to scream and spit and blow bubbles....and he especially spits when he is irritated or doesn't like something. He still will take a binky when I am trying to get him to sleep, and he loves to grab his feet and role around when he is on the floor.
