Gannon turned 6 months old on May 5, yep Cinco de Mayo, so to celebrate I went and had his pictures taken at a studio. After the bill I thought to myself, I really could have done this myself; however the pictures are still cute. You may check them out at http://www.vanmaanens.com/ click on view portrait session online, click on "more" at the bottom of the page, click on Tana Cox, type in password: gannon.
Then on the 6th we went in for his 6-month check-up at 10am. Gannon's about in the 90th% in all areas weight, height, and head circumference. He is a hefty 21lbs 9oz, is 28in long, and has a head circumference 17 3/4in around. I’m happy to report both his ears were clear. Dr. Anderson said that she could see the tubes, and neither of them was blocked! :) He was also getting over his cold and his lungs were also clear. The only thing that could be of concern was that he had a rash on his back, some of which looked like hives other of the red bumps not. The hives could have been linked to the applesauce that he had eaten the night before, but who's allergic to applesauce. We'll try it again one the rash clears up just to make sure. Gannon also received his 6mo shots, which went better then expected. He only cried until we got home (7-10min drive), and I gave him a bottle before he napped. He did get a bit of a fever, but Tylenol brought it down quite quickly. Over all he was happy most of the day.
