month six

as mentioned below, max had his six month check up on my birthday. it went well {besides the fact that he had to get three shots...} but the doctor was a little disappointed with his weight. this is how he measured up:

weight: 2.71 percentile {yes, there is a period between the two and the seven}
length: 35.17 percentile
head circumference: 55.19 percentile

what i want to know is...who are the babies that they base this percentile scale around??? max seems like a decent sized baby but according to the charts, he is a little shrimp! i want to see a baby in the ninetieth percentile for weight!

the doc told me to up his feedings to twice a day instead of just once. last week we gave him mango's for the first time and let's just say he LOVED them. every single bite. after each spoonful he would follow it with "mmmmmmmm" in that cute little voice of his. i love him!

we had a little bit of a scare last week {the day after his shots} when he woke up with a fever of 103. conference weekend he just wasn't acting himself, but we just assumed it was the shots. on sunday night, when he woke up hotter than i have EVER felt {104} we decided it was time to go to the doctor. so early monday morning we took him in and found out that he had an ear infection. so sad. but luckily, they just got him on amoxicillin and he was back to his normal self within a matter of days. having a sick baby is no fun!

lately he has been fascinated with:
strings/ribbons/anything that dangles
textured surfaces
{he does the funniest little thing each time he feels something new. i'll get a video of it tomorrow and post it soon!}
{basically he just tries to eat or attack them}

his two bottom teeth are getting bigger every day and i am almost positive that he has more coming in. he has been gnawing on just about everything in sight.

we love our little bubba. he is such a happy baby! every night when we lay him in his crib we say goodnight to the animals that are hanging in his mobile. he gets the bigggggest smile on his face and it is pretty much the cutest thing ever.

and is this picture not incredible?

have you ever seen such cute little babes?? i love them all.


  1. The picture of Max on the chair made me laugh out loud for some reason. Adorable. And there's a baby in our ward who's in the 85th percentile for weight. Trust me...he's huge and I'm not sure if I'd rather have a kid in the 85th or in the 2nd.

  2. I love the little shrimp!!! Don't worry about his weight.... he's as cute as ever and he shouldn't be expected to look like this:



  3. hey jessy, lets just say that my child is in the 75th percentile for weight and you have seen him, hes a fat one!! but we need to get together!! my number is 801-750-5032 give me a text or something to set up soemthing!!

  4. Jess, he is such a cutie. I love the pic in the glasses. Hope you are doing well.

  5. I LOVE MAX!

    Hey...he is perfect to me. Brinley is petite too. Oh well. Some girls just produce Cold Stone cream and their babies are F.A.T. I like Brinley skinny. She has just the right amount of chubs...as I'm sure Max does too. TEETH! I can't believe that. Brinley eats everything in sight and there are no signs of teeth. I do give her those teething tablets and they saved us. Those are fantastic!

    We love you guys. And I want to skype with you when we get to NC!
