CHILLI'S BLOG: My Husband and I May Be Hurting Our Son's Development...

I can't believe Donato is 6-months old today. My husband and I are madly in love with our little man...and we get such a kick out of seeing him learn something new every day.

Donato had his 6-month check-up this week. He weighs almost 22-pounds...and is a little over 28-inches tall. Yup...he's a bruiser. An ADORABLE bruiser. At the beginning of each pediatrician visit, they ask you a bunch of "developmental" questions. Does he roll over both ways? YES. Can he sit up? YES. Can he move things from one hand to another? YES.

You get the picture...there's a laundry list of things he "should" be able to do by now. When the nurse asked me if he's started responding to his name yet, I froze. I didn't know how to answer that. You see, Don and I don't call him DONATO. We have a ton of nicknames for him. Some of those include "chunk-a-monk", "bug", "bug-a-boo", etc.

I guess it never occurred to us that he should learn his NAME. LOL. So...from now on, I'm going to try using his name more often...although he'll still be my "chunk." :)
