Since William turned six months on Monday, it was time today for his six month well child and vaccination appointment. As I had to work, Matt took photos for me of the appointment. Instead of crying on the scale as he’s done in the past, William looks pretty calm and engaged for his weigh in. As we all suspected, he is now over 16 pounds.

I was fortunate that my schedule allowed me to attend William’s four month doctor visit during which he would, among other things, receive some more vaccinations. It began with him being weighed. I’m not sure what about this makes him cry, my guess is that the scale feels cold to him even with the diaper bad over it. He’s close to having doubled his birth weight of 7 lbs, 7 oz.

Although William was 10 weeks old and not 8, this he had the appointment known as the Two Month Pediatric Appointment on Thursday. It was a bit delayed due to the schedule of the pediatrician at the holiday time. At the time the appointment had been made I had not accepted the job I am at now.

Matt and I really like my OB, Dr. G, so we wanted to find a pediatrician similar to him. Dr. G had supplied us with two names of doctors meeting this criteria with one slightly more recommended as he had been in practice longer. Last week I talked to the first doctor on the list, Dr. V, who was a great fit even over the phone. In just a few minutes I learned a lot about just how similar he and Dr. G were from having the same first name and training, to having similar views on many things to coincidentally buying homes in the same neighborhood. He invited us to come down near the end of the day on Monday where he would find 10-15 minutes to talk with us.
