Today was the day I was meant to return to work, but it was a completely pear shaped day. Raf was up a lot in the night - which is quite unusual for him - and then I completely got the wrong time for his 6 month wellness Dr. checkup. Thus my day revolved around driving in to Portland twice... returning home the first time to a huge blowout nappy which required a bath - and then back to Portland. All was well with the appointment, though.
Here are the stats:
Weight - 17 pounds 15 oz (55th percentile)
Height - 26.25 inches (45th percentile)
Head - HUGE! Over 18 inches (100th percentile)
Big head.. and I think I know where he gets it from (see below!).
I also asked Deb if Raf's eyes would stay blue...it looks like they will! We were both pretty certain that he'd have brown eyes and be quite dark given all my recessive genes, but many people comment that he looks more and more like me. I think he has my cheeks, skin, and eyes.. and maybe smile :) What do you lot think? Unfortunately there are very few photos of me as an infant. Here's one - which I cropped - and one of Rich, about the same age that Raf is now. I think we know where all that hair comes from.. and that smile.. it could be Rich's!
