Today we had Oscar’s 6 month well visit and boy has he grown! His stats are now:
Length: 27 1/4 inches (1 1/4 inch growth in 2 months – 75th percentile)
Weight: 19 lbs 9 oz (5lb 4oz gain in 2 months! 80th percentile)
Head: 18 inches (3/4 inch growth in 2 months 90th percentile HIYOH)
Developmentally he is right on track and Dr. Bo kept saying how good he was being and how secure and social he is. Oscar just had a great time haha. Especially ripping up the paper barrier on the exam table!
One thing that was a little concerning is that the fat rolls on his legs didn’t quite line up. Apparently this can be a sign of the hip not fitting together properly so we have to take Oscar for an x-ray. The Dr. really didn’t seem concerned about it and said it was a precaution but definitely something worth checking out sooner than later. I spent about 5 minutes Google-ing the ‘what-ifs’ in this scenario and that was enough. Infant hip problems are scary and time consuming, not to mention sometimes painful to fix. I am not going there. Not gonna freak out. Just going to get the x-ray and move on. I hope! We’d welcome any prayers that this will just be a blip in an otherwise glowing report from the Doctor!
So maybe I am a little worried. We went to the grocery store and Oscar had his first trip in the seat area of the cart! How can I make this sweet little boy have an x-ray???
Prayers for me would also be welcome 😉
