6 Month Update.

Anna Kate went to the doctor today for her 6 month check up. She weighs 13 pounds and 11 ounces and is about 25 inches long. She is a little tiny girl! She is only in the 10th percentile for weight and the 40th for height. Dr. Smith was reassuring that this is just fine. He said that she is very proportionate and a very healthy baby! She got a little break from shots this time. There is a nation wide shortage of the HIB vaccine, so she will get that at her 9 month check up. We also got the "go ahead" to give her any kind of baby food and soft table foods. It will be interesting to have her try new things. She loves playing on the table in the room at the doctor because of the big mirrors there. This picture was of course taken before her shots. Her expression changed quite a bit after that. :o(

I can't believe Anna Kate is almost 14 pounds. Little Foy that was on one of my recent post weighs almost the same as A.K. and he is not quite 2 months yet. Crazy. Love the cute little pic. Glad you did not share any post-shot pics. I have not had to experience that yet, but we are going to the doctor on Friday. The W.W. shot is great!

Sounds like a good appointment! Another little peanut - I think Madilyn was just a bit bigger at her six month appt, and she was even smaller percentage-wise at her 9 month. I'm anxious to see what she'll be at her year appt. Her doctor wasn't at all worried either - they're just sweet and petite!

Have fun starting the table foods - One good "soft food" we've had great success with is avocado - Madilyn LOVES it.
