It is check up time

Harry had his six month check up today. He weighs 18 pounds and is 26.5 inches long. He is average now, instead of the massive giant infant that he was a birth. I kind of expected that since we are average sized parents. I am still puzzled by the large birthweights of my children since there is no family connection for that.

Evan of course came along and totally freaked out when we had to go into the room where they weigh the kids. He then had another freak out in the examination room. He kept thinking that we were there for him to get shots. Eventually he figured out that Harry was the one getting the shots and then he relaxed a bit. As we were leaving I had to stop at the front desk to make another appointment for Harry and Evan wandered into the weight room. He then proceeded to throw a temper tantrum as I drug him out of the room that not a half hour ago made him freak out. Toddlers!!

While talking with the peditrician he asked me if I was over the whole overwhelming what the heck am I doing feeling that comes with being a parent. I had to laugh and tell him that even now that I am a bit more seasoned that I still have many of those moments and I am sure that I will have many more to come. Kids have a way of making you realize how much you don't know.
