The Day of Doctors

Mason had his 6 month appointment today (yes a little late!)  He weighed in at 15 lbs 12 oz (20%) and he is 27 inches long (75%).  He is a little slow developmentally, we are not too worried though since Logan was slower than the girls as well.  But the doctor (actually a nurse practitioner) thought that maybe he should be evaluated by early childhood intervention..so we will see what they think!  The timing of his appointment was good since he had started to get an eye infection yesterday.  As it turned out he also had an ear infection...so we got an antibiotic to take care of both infections.

Mason is just pretty happy to lay around on his back and chew on his toys.  He has been rolling over to his side quite a bit but hasn't rolled over yet.  I need to get him on his stomach more to help him develop his arm muscles.  He has also recently discovered his toes...I always think that is so cute to see them grab their feet and try to suck on their toes!

I had to have a return visit to my dermatologist today as well.  I had a mole removed last week from behind my left ear and the biopsy came back showing it was severely atypical.  So, I had to go back in to have more skin removed (not the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last...I don't have a very good history with moles!).  Now I have a lovely line of stitches about 2 inches long behind my ear, I get the stitches out on Wednesday and then it shouldn't look so bad!

I hope it isn't too painful! How did you ever find a suspicious mole behind your ear anyway?!?
