Forrest's 6-month stats

So I took Forrest to his 6 month check-up today. Technically he was 6 1/2 months old.

Weight: 15lb 7oz
Length: 26"
Head Circumference: 44cm / 17.3 in 

Percentiles (from's calculator)
Length = in percentile 25
Weight = between percentile 10 and 25
Head Circumference = between percentile 50 and 75 

For comparison his 4 month stats were:
Weight: 11lb 10oz (so he gained almost 4 lbs since this appointment, 1 1/2 pounds of this just since I took him in on 5/10 for their colds!!)
Length: 24.25 (He grew almost 2 full inches since this appointment)
Head Circumference: 16" (almost 1 1/2" growth).

Length = between percentile 10 and 25
Weight = below percentile 5
Head Circumference = between percentile 5 and 10 

What is awesome in the increase in percentile across the board. I was a very happy momma!

The doctor was very pleased with his progress. We can continue with food and start in purees. He recommended yellow, then greens then fruits. So starting tomorrow, we might start him with carrots or butternut squash.
