Continuing on the subject...

...of where my baby went, today was Dominik's six-month check up.  He weighs 18 pounds, 12 ounces and is 27.5 inches long.  I see that this is short and underweight compared to his brothers at this age, but he's still in the 75th and 90th percentiles.  He also hasn't cut any teeth yet, which is delayed compared to his brothers.

But where he makes up for it is in crawling and sitting up on his own (the picture here is one of his first times sitting himself up...now he does it several times a day).  Brandi wickedly suggested this weekend that he will be walking by the time he's seven months old. Bite your tongue!   I don't think it will be that early, but at this rate he might walk before he's 12 months, which is waaaay too early in my book.  I think Lukas crawled at 10 or 11 months and both boys didn't walk until 14 or 15 months.

Terri kindly suggested I could cancel my gym membership because now I'll be running after another kid.  If I had a gym membership (which my post-pregnancy body proves does not exist), I would definitely cancel it.  What I really need to do, as soon as everyone (namely, Dominik) becomes accustomed to the time change and stops getting up so early, is to get up early myself and start working out in the living room.  Are you ready, Tom, my workout buddy?

I don't mind waking up early to work out, as long as the offset matches our time to bed. :>)
