Well Baby Visit (Six Months Old)

Nathaniel had his six months old well baby visit today. We had plenty of questions about his constipation, stranger/separation anxiety, and waking up every two hours at night again :( According to his pediatrician, these are quite normal (except for the constipation) and are to be expected right around his age. For his constipation, we are going start giving him water on top of what we're already doing, which is eating prunes every other day. Last week, his constipation and grunting were so bad that his doctor told us to give him a suppository (and I made Dean do it!).

Anyway, here are his stats: (Compare his last visit here)
Weight: 17lbs, 10oz (50 percentile)
Height: 27 3/4 inches (90 percentile) --- no wonder his toes are curling up in his Sleep & Play clothes!
Head Circumference: 44 cm (50 percentile)

Buddha belly :)

Paper makes an awesome toy!

Also, Nathaniel finally successfully rolled belly to back three days ago! Yay!
