6 months

Brazos had his 6 month check up on Monday. Everything went well. He weighed in at 15 pounds and 5 ounces and was 27 and 1/2 inches long. He is long for his age and you guessed it - under weight. He is not putting on enough weight to make them happy yet. They are going to give us to the next well check to see if we can get more weight on him. If we can show progress then they (the doctors) will be happy. I think he is fine and will catch up eventually. Braxton is just now getting to the point where he is the same size as kids his age. They are just thin like their dad.
Brazos will see the allergist on the 29th to see what he is allergic to. I hope the list is smaller than Braxton's was. He saw the Heart doctor on the 31st and everything was the same - the doctor said he did not see any change, so we were not released. But, we have to go back in 6 months. He seemed to think that it would be better by then.
Braxton saw the allergist on the 30th and was tested for the flu shot. Poor thing had to get 3 pricks and 4 shots. He was a trooper. All that to find out that he is still allergic to egg and the flu shot therefore he can not take it. The allergist said that all the allergies were still there. The milk allergy is still there but it is getting better. He is still very allergic to straight milk but he can now have things will milk in them. The egg allergy seem to be taking all the attention for now. Eggs are still making him very sick. He is a great kid and takes it all with stride.
Below are some of Brazos 6 month pictures. Enjoy!
