7 Month Check-Up

Yesterday morning I took Jack for a check-up. We skipped his 6 month check-up. He has been pulling at his left ear so I wanted to get that checked out and just an overall check-up. The wait was fun.

He really enjoyed tearing the paper up. It was quite an entertainment piece. At 7 months Jack weighs 15 pounds and 12 ounces. He is 26 inches long. Such a little fellow. There is little interest in eating. He still only drinks 5 ounces at a time, every 3 hours. He eats solids twice a day but most of it ends up all over the place. 

The doctor said he looks perfect. He is sitting up well. Follows your voice and has great neck control. Plus, there was nothing wrong with his ears. I didn't really think there was anything wrong but I wanted to be sure. He just discovered his ears and likes playing with them. We go back when he is 9 months old. Hopefully not before then. 


  1. Oh my goodness, he IS a little guy!!! Travis was 16 lb 13 oz at his 4 month appt and 26 inches long! Although Travis is a big boy, so your Jack is probably pretty normal. :) I had someone ask me if he was an 8 month old! Eeek my boy doesn't look THAT big!!

    I'm glad there was nothing wrong with his ears! I'm sure that can be terrible having an ear infection as a baby!

  2. He is so adorable! And teeny tiny! I think Grayson is probably close to that weight at two months haha...we go for his two month check up (and shots, ugh) next week, and I honestly won't be surprised if he is 13 or 14 pounds!

  3. Violet was never a big bottle drinker. She did 5 ounces right up until she turned a year, sometimes she drank 6 but at was really rare.
