Well, Joash had his 6 months check up and he is doing great. He weighs 17 lbs and is 26 1/2 inches long. He has great hearing and vision and is right on track with his milestones. He also got his 6 month immunizations today. Notice I said immunization. Not "needles" which is what they call them here. I find that really weird because we never called them that in the States. We went to get our "shots." When I was talking about this with Wilbert, he said that sounded much more violent than needle, which is true, I guess. So, I have decided to call them immunizations and just avoid the whole issue altogether.
Joash is also trying new foods. In Canada, they recommend that you start with meat, because they want the child to get as much iron as possible. Here is Joash's first taste of chicken.
