Our Big Girl

Gabriella had her 6 month appointment today. She is now 15lbs 4oz!!! She's in the 30th percentile for head, 40th for weight and 75th for length!!

He said she has good tone,etc. Her head control is still a bit behind when you pull her up from laying down, but he said she's doing fine and will catch up. It's likely because of her small birth size/possible prematurity. She's a bit lazy on trying to sit up or put weight on her legs, but continued play time should help with that.

The doctor saw a little bit of fluid in her ear and so he put her on an antibiotic to ward off a potential ear infection and hopefully knock the rest of this ick out. He said she is a bit congested still, but he said this stuff can hang on for a while and isn't concerned since it's not affecting her mood or eating or causing a fever.

She got two shots today which was no fun for her or mommy and daddy(mommy mostly!). Heck, if they stuck me twice I'd be none to happy either. But, she was fine after about 5 minutes of crying.

Yesterday was her 6-month birthday. Here are a couple of pictures of the happy girl. You can see her two bottom teeth in the first pic.

She is getting even more beautiful. I love that Bumbo seat, I got one for the foster mom, think I should go ahead and get us one too.

What a cutie! Maegan weighs 15lbs 11oz. They are close! Maegan has broke through one bottom tooth and the one next to it is trying. Maegan too is a bit congested and has a runny nose. The doc thinks it is climate change. So she is taking Zyrtec which helps. She is such a doll!

Absolutely classic Bumbo shots. Gab is so, so beautiful, and her smile is priceless. I adore those dimples. ;)

Happy 6th month birthday!

I'm glad she got an antibiotic. Can't wait to try out the Bumbo seat!

I was thinking about whether or not to get a Bumbo seat, but after these shots, I am almost forced too- she's just adorable! Happy 6 month birthday, gorgeous!
