"Is he starting to sit yet?" "Uhm, starting?!"

 - by Brittny

Sorry for yet another back dated post. I need to do better at either deciding to omit videos and pictures from my posts completely or assigning the multimedia part of the posts immediately to Eric. Editor’s note: Eric ended up putting the video together. Scroll down to see it.

This week we went in for Sam’s 6 month check up. Unfortunately Sam had gotten pretty sick the day before and had been running a fever and had a very runny nose, so we weren’t able to show off our baby as well as we would have liked. However, you wouldn’t have known that he was sick by the way he was acting. He was flirting with the nurse and the doctor, and trying to pull himself up to standing when he was supposed to be laying on the scale. It was pretty fun to watch him. The one kinda good side about him being sick is that we didn’t have him get his shots while we were there, so he left happy. Of course, it also means that we’ll have to go back sometime this next week just for shots, ick.

Anyways, here are the current Sam stats –

Weight: 17lbs 9oz – 65 percentile
Height: 27 inches – 55 percentile
Head circumference: 45 cm – 90 percentile

It looks like his parents genes are finally starting to catch up to him and he’s slowly falling down the growth charts. But it’s not at all something to be worried about, he’s still very healthy, just evening out to a size that would be more like we would expect for him.

The funniest part of the visit was definitely when the doctor asked us if Sam was starting to sit up on his own. Sam can sit right now for as long as he wants all by himself, and has been able to do that for a couple weeks now. He’s crawling like a maniac and pulling himself up to standing. We thought we’d throw in a little bit of pictures and videos of him getting into everything.

The HD version of the video is available on youtube if you click here and then click the HD box in youtube’s video player.

As far as everything else goes, we’re just still doing the same sorts of things. Eric, unfortunately, will switch back to his ridiculous late night schedule (6pm – 2am) again this week until they can find someone to replace him. Anyone speak Chinese and know HTML/Javascript that’s looking for a job? We’re pretty bummed about the switch, but it doesn’t negate his recent promotion or anything. Hopefully it won’t last too long and they’ll find someone to replace him soon.

In other news, things seem to be moving forward on the China opportunity. We’ve been helping figure out the logistics to get us over there, so it might not be too much longer. We’ll keep you posted when we know more :)
