Doctor's trip-6 Month Well Baby

Feels like the 1,000th time we've gone, but this one was his official six month appointment.  We killed two birds with one stone--got all the "check up" done and confirmed that Andrew has croup again... at least we only had to pay $5 for this trip (vs. $15 if it was just a sick visit).

Because of his major reaction to his shots last time, I requested (and Dr. G completely agreed) that we should spread them out over the next six weeks.  We did two today, will do one more in two weeks, a flu booster two weeks after that, and one more in six weeks.  Hopefully the fever won't come.  Just in case, we're dosing with baby tylenol already.

Everything (other than croup) else looks good.  Dr. G was SUPER impressed by his physical strength and called him 'advanced.'  He told me not to worry about Andrew's limited sounds, that they would come (if he doesn't start making more sounds by nine months, we're suppose to call).

For the croup, we're going to try breathing treatments before we go to the predisone route.  Hopefully we can get it cleared up quickly.
