Today, we went for Asher's 6 month check up. Dr. Gesn said, "He looks very healthy." She made him try to sit up and stand. According to Dr. Gesn, Asher is very strong, but he has not found his center of gravity. This is why he has not mastered sitting up yet. She said not to worry that he is right on target and will be sitting by himself in no time.
Asher is 20.04 lbs and 27 inches longs. This puts him in the 90th and 75th percentile, respectively speaking. Dr. Gesn said he is not fat; he is just a big boy. She said that it is way too early to predict how tall he will be. However, she looked up statistics and guess his adult height at 5'11. Could it be? Is it possible that Orvalle and I will have a relatively tall child?!
Asher's heart was broken when Nurse Becky gave him his shots, but he forgave her at the end. He did so well. We'll go back at 9 months.

Pop-pop gave Asher a popsicle to sooth his gums the other weekend. You think he like it??? I just sent him with his Nanna. She wanted him for a week. I do need this time to update my resume, do our taxes, among other things. However, I did cry when he left. This will be the longest time that I have ever spent away from him. I don't know how Orvalle does it, being away for two weeks at a time. The house is very empty now. Both my men are gone. This only makes me more hesitate about going back to work. This means less time with both of them. On the other hand, I am so lucky that I have had this time with my son and my husband. It will be an adjustment, but in the mean time, I sure do miss both of them.
