6 Month Doctor Visit

Emma had her 6 month appointment today.  She is 13 pounds, 8.5 ounces and 26.5 inches long.  She is in the 8th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for height - so long and lean little girl.  She has remained in a very low weight percentile and her height percentile keeps going up.... her growth chart is going to be interesting to watch (and the doctor was not concerned by her petite figure).  Maybe she'll be tall like Aunt Steph - I will add that I am one of the shorter females at the family Christmas gathering each year and I'm 5'8"!  She received 4 shots and a Complete Blood Count test.  All appears normal and she is developing well.  We are very thankful for her good health considering she came 3.5 weeks early.  She can now start eating solid foods daily - she has had bananas and some brown rice cereal so far.  I hope to introduce avocado this coming week.  
Emma and her crazy red hair - having fun while waiting to go back.

Daddy's girl? Definitely!!
Poor baby.  She cried a lot with this round of shots.

Missed her nap and had 4 shots.  Thank goodness I remembered her bear. 
She fell asleep as soon as we got in the car.
