6 Month Check-Up

Murphy had his 6 month check-up today. He had 3 shots, a finger-prick, and an oral vaccine. He was very brave and did not even cry when the nurse pricked his finger! He must be used to me cutting him when I clip his nails:(, well, according to LinLin that is! His bloodwork showed that he is anemic, so now we have the wonderful pleasure of giving him liquid iron once a day. I know firsthand that it is very yucky, so wish us luck! Other than that, everything was great! She was very pleased with his development, motor skills, etc! He is also quite the big boy at 18 lbs., 13 oz! We are just so pleased that he has grown lenghwise as well- 26 1/2 inches. Of course, our head is still in the 89th percentile, but at least our body is catching up! I love him in this outfit from his DeeDee! I know it is a little early to wear it, but I don't want him to outgrow it before we get to wear it a lot! His cousin Allie Harris has one that matches with her name on it! I can't wait to match them at the beach this summer!
Both of these are great shots of the head...
Here is Murphy in his boo-boo gown. It is one from when he was tiny, but it is so soft. I put it on him when I cut his little thumb on Sunday so he would not pull off the band-aid! This is Murphy trying to scoot-his new favorite thing. It was so funny, but pitiful, because he kept trying to move the keys to his right hand, but it was covered up! I may retire from cutting his nails because the girl who does my pedicures has so graciuosly offered to cut them for me!

Poor, poor Murphy! You are going to have to learn to dial 911DeeDee or 911LinLin! That Mama is sweet, but she never could cut straight- even in Kindergarten. Oh, well, she is perfect in every other way, and you have a competent father too!!! Just scream when you see the clippers!
Love LinLin

Murphy is adorable! I just hate it when they get their shots! I love reading about Murphy. We are right at the same stages. Cutting the nails is a tough job. I always get my mom to do that for me when she visits! We should get our little ones together some time soon!

Cutting those little nails would make me a nervous wreck! If you have someone who will do it for you I would say "Go for it!" As for Murphy's noggin....of course it is big. He is very smart and has to have room for that big brain! Love his cute little outfit. It matches those big, blue eyes. He will be the talk of the beach on his next visit!

Hey Meghan! It was great to hear from you! Little Murphy is so precious and what a perfect name!! You have a beautiful family and it was so good to see pictures of your grandmother, mom and brother- your grandmother and mom haven't changed one bit!! Will on the other hand- our "little" brothers are so grown up now! I'll enjoy keeping up with you now through your blog! Glad life is treating you well!

Your little cutie is getting so big! What a brave boy. We'll have to give you a call next month so Murphy can give Riley a pep talk before her 6 month visit. Good luck with the iron and nail clipping. I'm pretty sure every mommy draws a little blood during each mini-mani.
