Yesterday, Harry had his 6 month well baby check-up and immunizations (and like always we are running about a month late). He is 27.9 inches long and 28.8 pounds. A perfect image of health...except the doctor thinks he is TOO fat. Too fat? Is that even possible? He is a baby. I was trying to talk to the doctor about a couple questions I had, but he couldn't get off the FAT subject. I told him how Harry has been having a lot of diarrhea lately (sorry TMI) and I was a little worried about it and he had the nerve to tell me "well, he can stand to have a little more, cause he really is too fat" (seriously). He asked me over and over what we fed him and how much (not much, cause he still hates to eat baby food, just his milk). He re-weighed Harry, and measured him again. He then lectured me for 20 minutes about over feeding him (trust me I don't, I don't have time for that and he isn't that interested anyway) and making sure he is active enough (um....active enough, he is a BABY, not a 2 year old). Whatever Dr. Quack....I mean Dr. Kwok (yea, that is his real name, but for now and forever will be known as Dr. Quack in our house).
I never thought his adorable plumpy-ness was an issue (well, frankly I still don't). He has been big since the day he was conceived. It is all we have ever heard about him. When I was pregnant they would go on and on about how big he already was. He is not unhealthy. It's just Harry. Bigger than life. He has to be to keep up with Clark. And that's the way we like him.
