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 beforeher shots. Her expression changed quite a bit after that. :o(
Chris. Amy. Anna Kate. Throw in a dog and a couple a cats, and that's our little family! Chris and I were high school sweethearts and were married in 2005. Anna Kate stole our hearts and changed our lives with her arrival in September of 2007. Our time together as a family is now spent on playgrounds, playing with baby dolls, watching Sesame Street, reading board books and finger painting. My wonderful husband deals with the headaches of the stock market all day, so that I can have the privilege of staying home with our beautiful one year old. This is a peek into our world.
