6 Month Checkup

Well, Baby Girl is officially 6 months. The doctor was shocked to hear that she had 3, yes 3 teeth!  She is growing fast and is weighing in at 16lbs, 10oz and is 26-1/2 inches long.  Overall, she's in the 80th percentile.  And here's the big shocker...her head circumference (44-1/2cm) is the 98th percentile.  Not really a shocker.

So far, she's is sitting up on her own when put in that position but she's not quite there with pushing herself up into sitting.  Mom, the PT, is still working on this.  She's starting to solve problems on her own and is beginning to LOVE her doggies.  It's a good thing they like their ears tugged.  Her favorite food has to be green beans or sweet potatoes and I can't get her to eat fruit even if I pay her. The doctor gave us the go-ahead for letting her "cry it out" at night, since she is still waking up at night and taking food. I think this is because she's soon to cut her next tooth, but he thinks it might be behavioral. We shall see Dr. Frand.

I bought her some blocks today because she did so well with her shots.  At least it made me feel better.
