6 Month Checkup Stats

Sam's 6 month checkup was today and he weighs 18 pounds, 2 ounces (70th %) and is 28 inches long. (97th %).

Dr. A has set us up with a physical therapy referral because Sam should really be putting weight on his legs at this point! We will go to an initial appointment at Children's and then I am hoping that we can have a PT come to our house. That would be such a blessing, rather than have to get out in the cold 2-3 times per week. But we'll do what we need to do!

He has a lot going against him, in that he is a boy and that he is a BIG boy, both of which make for later-than-normal milestones. But I have noticed that he doesn't have very good "core" strength either. Sitting in a bumbo or exersaucer is a large challenge for him and he usually begins leaning to the side or forward after a few minutes and can't pull himself back up. (If he'd put weight on his legs, it would help him tremendously) So that is what we will be doing over the next couple months! Here's hoping to some progress!
