Sol is now 7 months old as of the 16th. He had a doctor visit yesterday to get his shots and general check-up. He is now 26" long and 15 lbs 5 oz. My little guy is growing up… I didn’t stay for his shots. I hate that part. I don’t mind getting them myself, but I just breakdown when they give them to Sol. Trask said he did pretty well, but on the last shot (they gave him 3 in all) he was pretty sure Sol’s first word was going to be a cuss word.
The pediatrician gave us the go-ahead to start giving him meat. She told us it would be fine to start feeding him more actual food. Still no fish, eggs, or nuts. So, tonight I made some chicken and dumplings. It was a meal-in-a-box kind of thing. I took some of the veggies and a few pieces of chicken, milled them up, and fed him. He LOVED it.
I am really looking forward to sharing the holidays with him. I had so much fun on Halloween with him. This Thanksgiving and Yule should be wonderful. He already loves the shiny lights on the trees at the stores and the shiny-looking gifts.
