6 month check-up

... at 6 1/2 months, but better late than never!

Sophia is growing like a weed these days!!! I was shocked by her latest stats... are you sitting down?

At 4 months she was 13 lbs 11 oz (45-50%), 25.5 inches long (75%), and HC of 17 inches (90%).

Today at 6 months she was 16 lbs 15 oz (55%), 28 inches long (>97%), and HC 18 inches (>97%).

So you may wonder what >97% means .... basically it means she is off the growth chart for her height and head!!! Cracks me up!!! I was just beginning to think her body was catching up with her head!!

She also had her very first shot today and did really well! She just cried when they stuck her, but stopped when I picked her up!! She hasn't been fussy or cranky at all today!! Probably b/c it was just one?

Oh yeah, by the way... she has been sitting up unsupported now for (usually) 10-15 min increments! Oh yeah!!! Seems like she has made such headway since Friday!

Until we type again,

Allyson and Sophia

Her first shot? I'd be curious to see a blog about why you decided to wait until 6 months for her to get any vaccinations.
