Week 29

Quick but long week here at the Cooley house.

Monday - Paul works, Nathan and Laura bring spaghetti lunch to Paul, do grocery shopping and mountains of laundry.
Tuesday - Paul works, Nathan and Laura go to the U of W for the last day of the infant hearing testing.
Wednesday - Paul works, Nathan and Laura have a quick lunch with Robin and her two kids and then do a trip to Costco.
Thursday - Paul works, Nathan and Laura go to the doctor for his 6 month checkup and then to parent/child class to learn about how to start a babysitting co-op.
Friday - Paul works, Nathan and Laura walk to the library after a long morning involving screaming from 6am until 10:30am due to the shots from yesterday. Laura cleans the upstairs and tries darn hard to get Nathan to eat anything all day.

Nathan is 17lbs 4 oz, 28 inches long. On the standard charts he is in the 90% for height and 30% for weight. He is off his weight curve but a friend pointed out the charts show all babies and most are formula fed and start solids before 6 months. I found a chart for breastfed babies and he is on the 50% line all the way. Nathan got 3 shots and won't need any at our 9 month appointment. So the doctor asks how he is sleeping.. umm not great. She asks how he is eating.. umm not great. Add that too the drop off his curve is enough to start thinking we failed at our doctors visit. The doctor only had positive things to say so really there is no worry.

Nathan was eating some food before this week, he would eat almost a whole ice cube full of sweet potatoes, today he decided he didn't want to eat anything. He does this cute thing were he won't open his mouth even to smile. Today Nathan also decided to start to learn how to whistle, that combined with extra drool made for a big mess.
