An update

He had his latest checkup last week and everything went fine except he had another ear infection so we had to postpone his vaccination shots a week. He came in still in the 10% percentile for weight and he is in the 40th percentile for height. 

We expect him to start standing and walking on his own any day now.  He will stand for half a second and then slowly go into a squat and then crawl everywhere.  He loves to walk back and forth with his lion walker he got for his birthday, it is a big upgrade from his cardboard boxes.  If you hold his hands while he is walking he takes off running.  I am not sure I am ready for him to start walking, but at the same time I know he is going to love it!  Also, once he starts walking he is really going to start getting into everything he can find, he loves to take things out of anything!  And, once he starts walking, he will get to move up to the toddler class at daycare, and they are very excited to welcome him to the next class.  They move them when they start walking so they don't trample over any tiny 6 week old babies on accident.  He is eating really well and is drinking a cocktail of whole milk and formula.  We are hoping to get him off formula in the next few weeks as long as he keeps digesting it well!   

He enjoys taking things out
We have tried to take him to the park a few times, he is warming up to the slide, but he is still not a fan of swinging at all.  We even had him swinging next to a nine month old girl for a little bit and he starred at her and then started crying.  Hopefully by this summer he will love it!   

No thanks Mom! 
Enjoying the slide a bit more than the swing

His stats from his appointment were - weight - 19.6 lbs, height - 29 inches.  We still call him Noah Pants, Pumpkin, Little Guy, Kiddo, Noah Noah Noah Noah, Mister, and Pumpernickel.

All smiles here!
