Six Month Well Check

Abby had her six month appointment yesterday and it went great. She looks good - and tall! She measured 28 inches which is what Aaron was at this age. That's really tall for a boy, but I guess it's unheard of for a girl. The print-out I was given put her in the 100th percentile for height. That completely confused me. Aaron was often in the 99th which meant that 99% of boys his age were shorter than he. Does this mean that 100% of 6 month old girls are shorter than Abby??? In any case, she is long, lean and healthy. She weighs 16 pounds (60th percentile).

She has been eating rice cereal or oatmeal after most of her feedings, but we tried green beans today. She did not like them. She spit them out. Repeatedly. She is still nursing every three hours during the day. Most nights she eats at around 6pm and not again until about 5:30 am. She is taking a nap around nine and one at around one.

She is sitting up and she is crawling! It's a slow crawl - more of a scoot or an army crawl, but she can get from one side of the room to another. She can also get in a sitting position, so when you go to get her from the crib after she awakes she is always sitting up waiting on you! She loves her toys! She will definitely work to get toys that are out of reach. She still loves her fingers.

She is wearing a size 2 diaper and 6 mo or 9 mo clothes. She smiles a lot and she loves to watch her brother! We love this little girl!

Wow! Just think: you may be juggling girls and boys basketball games some day?!
Gpa R & Gma S are laughing. She always wanted to be tall and he of course loved being tall.
Wonderful report! And yeah, what's not to love?!!
