Hi All-

Can you believe it? Today was Tobin's 6-month check-up!

Overall, our peditrican is very pleased with Tobin's development. He kept saying, "He's doing really well!" He very impressed at Tobin's activity level- Tobin showed him how he can sit up by himself, roll over from front to back and reverse, and how he's in the ready to crawl position- he kicks, but hasn't figured out how to put it all together.

Tobin weighs 16 lbs 4.5 oz (33% percentile) and is a whopping 28.5 inches long (97% percentile). He's a big boy! In length, he's the same size as an average 10 month old! Although Mama was a little worried that his weight-for-height ratio is low, the Dr reassured us that Tobin is fit and thriving. He's eating two solid meals and drinking 45-60 oz of baby milk a day.

Here's a picture of him- he's in his PJ's and we are hoping he's going to feel sleepy soon! Oh, that's the other great news- he's sucessfully transitioned from his bassinet by our bed to his crib in his own room- and also, 5 out of 7 nights has slept all the way through! Hoorah!

Love to all,
Nate, Erika, and Tobin

PS- I wasn't impressed with the website, so let the free trial lapse. I am investigating other options, and will keep you informed.
