Status Update: Perfect

Baby girl is six months old. Can you believe it? I can't. We are over halfway through her first year of life. It is crazy how fast things are going. I have been told the next six months will be even faster. Can we push the pause button?

We had her six month check up yesterday and she is growing beautifully. Here are her stats from her four month and six month check-ups:

Four month appointment (6/27):
Weight: 14 lbs 4.3 oz (62 %)
Height: 24 3/4 inches (66%)
Head circumference: 16 1/2 inches (73%)

Six month appointment (8/29):
Weight: 16 lbs 12 oz (62%)
Height: 25 1/2 inches (37%)
Head circumference: 17.13 inches (76%)

As you can see she has dropped in her height. She is going to be short. No surprise there. The pediatrician said it was not a cause for concern since she is still growing. He said most babies will fluctuate like that.

We are officially starting solids now and I think everyone is ready.

She is almost sitting unassisted. She will randomly fall over which is to be expected. She has started to move backwards when placed on her tummy. She still hates tummy time. If she can she will immediately flip over to her back. She loves to blow raspberries and is usually happy. She will let you know when she doesn't like something. We love her and can't imagine life without her. She has completed our family.
