Raf is currently dealing with the dreaded first year molars. He's in a lot of pain, poor baby. I am kicking myself for not yet ordering an amber necklace, which are meant to be really helpful, so teething tablets and baby medicine are what we have.. and, oh, cuddles, too. Sleep is interesting right now, and this morning I was so tired (a week with 7 or 8 wakings) that Rich took Raf downstairs at 6ish (I'm usually up by then) and I slept until after 7:30am. This is very unusual! Boy, I am hoping these teeth come through soon. As I type Raf is asleep on me.. let's hope he catches up on his disrupted sleep.
Added to the teeth, Raf has a vax yesterday at his one year check up. We've been quite anxious about his jabs and have been getting them done slowly... We caught up on one yesterday but we put off the MMR. The link between that and autism is pretty much discredited, but you can't help but think 'what if...'. On the other hand these are horrible illnesses. Measles can be quite dangerous, and mumps can leave little boys sterile, so we are planning on getting it... Any words of wisdom would be welcome!
Here are the stats from yesterday:
Weight: 22 pounds 8 oz (around 43rd percentile)
Length: 30 inches (around 50th percentile)
Head: 19.5 inches (yes, huge! 100th percentile!)
He looks much bigger than he is, I think, as people often comment on how big he is yet he's only around the 50th percentile, so quite average :) My guess is that it's the head!!!!
Finally, here are a few pics from our photo session a couple of weeks ago. We went and picked some prints out yesterday (blew the budget, of course), but they were very sweet! What can you do... ?
