Six month stats

Jackson had his six month check up today. Can I just say how nice it is to go to a pediatrician that we don't hate? Dr. Buchanan is wonderful. Jackson is doing great except for his eczema. It's not too bad but living in such a dry climate with hard water doesn't help. He has a prescription cream that helps but he gets really bad red patches on his stomach and back. It doesn't seem to bother him at all, it just looks yucky. Eliza had the same issues and outgrew it so hopefully he does too.

Weight: 25 lbs. 5 oz. (completely off the chart)
Height: 28 in. (90 %)
Head size: 47.1 cm. (also off the chart...he does have sort of a big noggin)

When I told the doctor that Jackson doesn't really roll over yet (he will with a little encouragement) but sits up pretty well, he said, "Well, that's a lot of Jackson to get moving!" That made me laugh!

I love my little butterball. He makes our home so happy.

Our Sunbeam

This Sunday was Eliza's first day in Sunbeams. They just called brand new teachers and I feel for them. There are about 14 fresh out of nursery three year olds. Luckily, only about 7 were there this week. She was so excited about her new class. We've spent a couple of weeks talking about the "rules." If you ask her what the rules are in church she says, "We stay in our chairs and be reverent and don't kick our legs." Now we need to teach her to not scowl at the boy sitting next to her. Maybe they didn't get along in nursery either. :) Matt and I teach the 5 year olds this year so we get to witness her in primary first hand. It's wonderful.
